International Admissions are Open

Kingsmead has enjoyed a long tradition of welcoming students from overseas.

Kingsmead has enjoyed a long tradition of welcoming students from overseas and this is now being revived. From September 2017 we will once again be able to accept overseas students and will also be hosting parties of foreign students who are visiting Britain on educational tours.

This latter category of visitor will be housed in the main school building, allowing the group to remain together for the duration of the stay; full time pupils who come to Kingsmead from overseas will be paired with families closely associated with Kingsmead, going ‘home’ to them each evening after school to make their education at Kingsmead as close to a home-from-home experience as possible.

Our Strategic Head of International Development is Sajjan Singh. In the first instance, anyone who is interested in developing links with Kingsmead to facilitate overseas students enjoying all the school has to offer should contact either or the Headmaster, Mark Gibbons, at
