Pastoral Curriculum

Pastoral Curriculum

Each year group has a theme, which is the focus for the year group. As they journey through their time at school, students at KNGS flourish by building up their skills, and knowledge of the pastoral curriculum.

Year 7 – Explore and Engage
Year 8 – Embrace opportunities
Year 9 – Choosing your path
Year 10 – Aspire for the future
Year 11 – Be ready for the wider world

Students at KNGS are supported by their Form Tutors, who deliver PSHE and Themes of the Week to ensure that they can be happy, healthy and safe. Please find the pastoral curriculum here. When additional care or support is needed we work with a range of internal and external support agencies:
