Kind. Ambitious. Resilient.

I am delighted to welcome you to King’s Academy Ringmer, and privileged to be the Principal as we embark on the next stage of the school’s development. We have a very simple ambition, to become the best school in Sussex. We are committed to ensuring that all our students will receive a better education at Ringmer than they would at any school within the region. Our vision for our students is clear:  

To develop well rounded, confident individuals who are world ready

We consider this to be our ‘Journey to Excellence’.

The outcomes for our children are already well above national average figures, adding around a third of a grade more at GCSE than other schools. We are a school of choice in the local area and oversubscribed. Our students thrive and our parents recommend us unreservedly.

My educational philosophy is simple - we must do everything possible to develop the whole child. We believe that student learning and progress is our core purpose. Alongside this, we are equally determined that Ringmer students will have the skills and attributes to live and work in the global society of tomorrow, and will be confident in their morals and values in order to lead happy, fulfilled lives. Our key values of Kindness, Ambition and Resilience are at the heart of the school and chosen by our school community. We want every student to play a strong part in school life through the variety of school teams, the wide range of extra-curricular clubs, the house competitions, student leadership opportunities and school trips. A well-established programme of music, sporting and enrichment activities offers the chance for our young people to pursue their interests and develop new ones.

Please rest assured that every decision I make as Principal of this school will be to ensure that your children become the best possible versions of themselves. We are clear that sky high standards in everything we do will enable our students to make a positive contribution to society. Our students have a proud reputation for sporting, arts and musical success and we take great pride in their achievements in these and other areas.

We encourage positive attitudes and aim to provide an environment in which all learners feel valued, challenged and secure, and where they can develop the skills and confidence to become young adults. The school is part of King’s Group of Academies (KGA) who have over forty years of experience in enhancing the education of young people both in the UK and abroad. I look forward to meeting you.


Kind regards,

Chris Harvey
Principal
