Our best ever GCSE results in 2012 are clear proof that King’s Norton Boys’ School is an
excellent place for your son’s secondary education. We are proud of our history as a popular
and successful boys’ school, and we make no apologies for our traditional ethos. We expect
boys to work hard, have high standards of behaviour, and to display respect for others in the
school community. We recognise that our boys will be leaving us to go into a highly competitive
world, and so we aim to instil values of resilience and independence as well as encouraging
boys, whatever their ability, to achieve their academic potential.
Our house system offers excellent pastoral care as well as opportunities for learning and
success outside the classroom. We encourage boys to develop their talents in sports, music
and drama. We have invested in our staffing so that all boys have the support they need to
enjoy all aspects of school life and to feel safe. As a Head, I am really proud of the staff and all
the extra hours they put in so that boys can have as many opportunities as possible, under the
supervision of excellent role models. Our recent OFSTED report is validation that the school is
continuing to get even better.
The inspectors said that boys feel exceptionally safe, enjoy their learning and behave well. If
you feel that our ethos is right for you and your son, then I do hope you will join us for these
critical years in your son’s life.
