Tenth secondary school set to open in Brighton and Hove
4:30pm Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
A tenth secondary school in Brighton and Hove is preparing to open its doors after a rigorous summer of planning.
King’s School is set to open on Wednesday, September 4 and will be the first secondary Free School in Brighton and the fourth secondary school to be opened by academy sponsor The Russell Education Trust.
King’s is an Ecumenical Christian School which will actively encourage an understanding of Anglican and other mainstream Christian traditions.
For King’s founding head teacher, Steve Flavin, it is a second headship.
He said: “I’m very privileged to have led a high achieving school in Swindon and to now have the opportunity to lead and build another excellent school from the bottom up.
“I’ve worked with RET inspectors to appoint an exceptional team of teachers and support staff.
“All of them have worked through- out the summer to plan lessons, organise resources and get beautiful new classrooms ready for our fantastic founding students.”
The school aims to embrace the needs of its local community and will be open to all students, irrespective of their faith or beliefs.
The school is based upon four core Christian values of Respect, Responsibility, Forgiveness and Love.
There will be a traditional daily act of collective worship.
Mr Flavin added: “Every student who attends King’s School will have immediate access to the best classroom facilities and resources.
“ICT includes a mix of PCs and Apple Mac technologies.
“All classrooms have the latest inter- active whiteboard technology and recent software to help make each lesson a high quality learning experience.
“Every student who starts at King’s in September will be taught and supported to make excellent academic progress from day one.
“Parents and children are making a positive choice for King’s because it will not only be academically rigorous but it will have a ‘small-school’ feel in which every student will be known and cared for as an individual.”
