A current parent perspective on the UK's top schools


INSIDE SCOOP Knightsbridge School 67 Pont St, Chelsea, London, SW1X 0BD Admissions: 020 7590 9000 • Day 3-13 The Inside Scoop from a current parent… We initially chose KS for our daughters, because of the energy and spirit that is apparent the second you walk through the doors. Magoo, the schools’ founder, has such a passion and vision for the children and the school. It combines all the things we were looking for - excellent academics, making sure the children have a genuine interest in the world, an appreciation for others, and a fun and safe environment to learn and grow. The school is very honest about what they are trying to achieve…it is not a 7+ school as they want the students to have the chance to flourish in all areas of development. This by no means makes it any less academically rigorous. The school produces eloquent, poised, curious and well-mannered students. GL As parents, we love: How the school very much focuses on making the child an all-rounder. The junior school “play hard, work hard”. The senior school “work hard, play hard”! There is a real open-door policy at the school. Parents are encouraged to play an active role in their child’s development. Our children love: They love the teachers who create a caring and safe environment at the school. The clubs and activities. There is something for everyone, sports to coding to sewing. The diverse student body and their friendships. HEADS UP “KS stands for all the qualities integral to the KS ethos: Keep Striving, Keep Studying, Keep Soldiering On, Keep Sporty, Keep Singing, Keep it Simple, Keep Safe & Sound and most importantly, Keep Smiling.” Magoo Giles, Principal & Founder Open days: Please contact the school. 54 Read the full review on ★ 2019
