Knole Academy was last inspected in September 2017. We are delighted with the GOOD outcome both in every category and also in overall effectiveness. We are now considering how we improve further so that our students benefit as much as they can from their time at the academy. Of course, even outstanding schools can find ways of improving and we are never complacent. We wish to be the best we can possibly be. There is continuous self-scrutiny and a willingness by all staff to improve their practice and this is supported by a committed governing body. Visitors, students and parents will and do make their own decisions about us and we are always pleased to invite people to visit us to make their own decision.
Our examination results were extremely good for a cohort which was significantly below average on entry. As each new year group joins the academy the academic profile is changing so that we are now average ability on entry. This is clearly as a result of our more balanced intake which incorporates a grammar stream.

In addition to our academic achievements we also have a thriving Duke of Edinburgh scheme and every child in the school is given a ‘culture voucher’ which they can spend on a school visit to the opera or ballet, a historical trip to the First World War Battlefields, a day in the French markets of Boulogne or one of many other opportunities.
As an expressive arts school we believe that building creativity in young people will assist them in the workplace and in their future lives. We pride ourselves on presenting outstanding school productions, regular concerts and dance shows, and a thriving art gallery which displays the work of our students, and of visiting artists.
We are very proud of our students and our school.
