So much more...
Kingsmead students benefit from over eight acres of well laid-out playing fields, accommodating, amongst other sports, athletics, hockey, football, rounders, tennis, rugby and cricket. The school also owns a further nine acres of nursery woodland (planted in 1990) and adjacent land for additional playing fields which are yet to be developed. The entire campus covers an area of 20 acres.
Kingsmead's science department, situated close to the swimming pool with views over school gardens, has recently undergone a major upgrade. It now offers refurbished and enhanced science laboratory provision, providing Kingsmead scientists with the finest learning facilities.
The school has invested heavily in ICT in recent years, and boasts a dedicated Junior and Infant computer room with a 20 station network system, allowing each pupil to have sole use of a computer during lessons.
The Senior computer room, with 24 networked stations, is housed in the Centenary Building on the Senior campus.
There are networked computers in most other offices and classrooms.
