Outdoor adventures

We are privileged to have the most fantastic outdoor space and a nursery and school community of adventurers keen to get out in the fresh air.

Our safe and secluded walled garden has been home to many dens over the past two decades, our children can play on our wonderful outside instruments, take a turn around our Trim Trail assault course or simply enjoy playing and learning amongst the wonderful surroundings our garden offers.

Our pupils benefit from an exciting outdoor learning programme that gives children the opportunity to explore and try new things. Not only does this develop resilience and self-confidence in a supportive environment, it allows children to develop respect and an awareness of the natural world.

New nursery

The Kingscourt adventure starts in our nursery, so we are incredibly excited to show you our new state of the art home for our youngest students.

With its own entrance from the back of the school, the latest in interactive white boards and direct access out into our glorious garden and grounds - we can’t wait to show you around.

Our new nursery at Kingscourt is a very special place. The bespoke, eco conscious design of the new building sits in perfect contrast to our beautiful Georgian house. Our youngest children, in Caterpillar and Butterfly classes have constant and easy access to a purpose built play area that includes fantastic new fun, STEM focussed games and resources, including a waterwall, play equipment and toys. There is also direct access to the beautiful woodland and meadow grounds of the school, ready for our Outdoor Learning specialist teacher sessions. In doors, the children have access to a host of brand new toys and games, and the light, bright interior has ceiling to floor windows – letting as much of beautiful outdoor space in as much as possible.

Our nursery staff are renowned for their exceptional care and support of the children. We truly believe that Kingscourt nursery offers the best possible start to a child’s educational journey.

Prepare for the future

One of our aims is nurturing and supporting pupils’ to reach their fullest potential.

Part of this is preparing them for the next step - encouraging them to realise the importance of learning to study in their own time as well as the classroom and making sure they are ready to tackle entrance examinations for a variety of independent schools.
We work closely with our parents to help them choose the best school to suit their child and are very proud that many of our Year 6 children are recipients of academic, music and sports scholarships each year.
