Welcome to The King’s Academy
The King’s opened as an 11-18 school of 1,200 students in September 2003, with its Sixth Form provision starting a year later in September 2004. During the last ten years, we have enjoyed a tremendous rise in our GCSE exam results from 34% 5+ A* – C in 2004 to 89% in 2013. Improvements in Sixth Form results have been equally impressive.
In January 2009, the Department of Education identified The King’s as one of the top 100 most improved schools in the country and the most improved school in the North East region.
Perhaps the Academy’s greatest pleasure, however, is to see the inclusive environment in which its students operate, with 100 students having Statements of Special Educational Need. Inspired by our Christian ethos, which values everyone as equal in the sight of God, we are ‘humbly proud’ of what happens in our school and are delighted to welcome you to this website introduction of what The King’s is all about.
