At King George V School (KGV), our purpose is based on our belief that every student can ‘be their own remarkable…’ as they achieve, improve and learn. Our vision is to create a ‘school for one’; a place where each student feels that the school was created just for them. Through a lived experience, we want all to feel a deep sense of belonging, identity, and purpose.
We personalise learning so each and every person is supported and encouraged to achieve at a high level, and to develop holistically to be the best person they can be.
Our school thrives on a culture where a diversity of ideas, beliefs, and values are equally cherished, respected, and heard. We seek to continuously collaborate, innovate, and improve to make a difference in the communities we serve and lead.
The school is well known for its commitment to developing all aspects of student life and it has a fine tradition in academics, sport, music, drama, dance, community service, charity work and environmental sustainability. Our school has a very strong House system, which is run and inspired by our students and provides a wide range of learning opportunities and activities.
Our school promotes and celebrates our ‘Honesty before Glory’ motto, which is underpinned by our three school values:
- Honesty – Be truthful, fair, and authentic
- Courage – Be vulnerable, brave, and resilient
- Empathy – Be kind, understanding, and respectful
