Headteacher's Message

Image of Dave Collins for new Website 10.12.18Thank you for visiting the Knole Academy website. We hope that it provides an insight into the core values that underpin our commitment to the education of young people in Sevenoaks. We are aspirational and have high expectations for every child, regardless of background or ability. The interests of our students are always our priority in all decision making and, as a result, we are proud to deliver a curriculum that engages and enthuses our learners. At the heart of our ethos is our determination that all students receive high quality teaching, which is equally as aspirational for our Grammar stream students as it is for the wider student body. In order to enable every student to achieve his or her potential, we believe in generating a learning environment that is calm, safe and inclusive, in which our students enjoy their education.        

All students are inspired through the curriculum and through extra and co-curricular activities. Knole students benefit from state of the art facilities that offer a vast range of opportunities. Our Expressive Arts status drives our many school performances, concerts, productions and dance shows; in sport, our facilities and staff provide an unrivalled range of activities and the school has large cohorts of successful Duke of Edinburgh participants as well as an expanding Combined Cadet Force, one of the few in a state school.

Knole Academy is an International Baccalaureate candidate school and, with the support of Sevenoaks School, we intend to develop internationally-minded learners who recognise their common humanity and help create a better world. Staff and students have benefitted significantly from the close collegiate relationship between the schools. Through our partnership with Sevenoaks School and all stakeholders, we ensure that no barriers are placed in the way of student achievement.

We look forward to welcoming you to Knole Academy.
