The Directors of The Gardener Schools Group have established Kew House School in the conviction that there exists an opportunity for a different kind of independent secondary school in London - academically demanding but with a modern approach to selection criteria, the flexibility of the curriculum, the shape of the school day and term and recognition of creativity and talent.
The school opened with 63 students in September 2013 and now has 566. We opened for internal and external sixth form candidates for the first time in September 2016.The school will grow to full capacity over the next 3 or 4 years with about 600 students 11-18 by September 2021.
The school is housed in a modern and newly equipped building, close to rail and road links near Kew Bridge. These include Gunnersbury Underground station (7 minutes) and Kew Bridge British Rail Station (2 minutes). There is also limited on-site parking.
We offer a full range of GCSE and A level subjects. The curriculum is structured around a two year Key Stage 3 and flexible timetabling. The school pursues excellence in all areas whether examinable or not. The school’s aim is to provide a rich and broad education to all students whatever their specialism. Whilst we achieve the highest academic results for each student, we do not serve as an examination “factory”. An extensive extra-curricular programme is in place. This consists of sport, creative activities and curriculum extension sessions. We include guest speakers and workshops to inspire the students. Residential and other school visits are encouraged, making the optimum use of the resources and facilities available locally, nationally and internationally.
The ethos of the new school is that of a family and social hub, giving emotional support and security to all students and employees. Each student receives individual attention both educationally and pastorally. The approach emphasises the partnership with parents; their involvement, with parents often spending time in school, is part of the ethos of Kew House. Our vertical tutor groups will add to the family approach.
