Our Vision, Value & Ethos
Kinver High students develop into well-rounded confident, independent, resilient, and high achieving outward thinking individuals. Everyone is valued, recognised and given the opportunity to shine, discover new talents and understand that individual and collective endeavour is rewarded. Learning happens everywhere in our school, not just in the classroom. Our students know that hard work leads to success and that they will be expected to demonstrate resilience, kindness, integrity and respect at all times, both in school and life. Our students will always be encouraged to seek out new challenges, fulfil their high aspirations and make a positive contribution to society.
Engage, Succeed, Aspire to Lead
Our dictum guides all that we do and by choosing to study at Kinver High, you can be assured that your child will be challenged to achieve their very best academically, as well as being supported and encouraged to develop the moral, social, and emotional intelligence to succeed outside of the classroom in a wide variety of ways.
Kinver High is a school that uses its relatively small size to great effect. Our students are not lost in the crowd. We recognise the need to personalise our teaching to get the very best out of each individual. Ours classrooms provide engaging opportunities to work and learn in groups and we believe that effective and regular feedback helps our students to improve and make good progress. Our ambitious curriculum and wider opportunities for enrichment, leadership, and personal development ensures that all of our students are equipped with the skills and acumen to become tomorrow's leaders and to continue to always aim, to be the best that they can be.
Reassuringly, our priorities are clear as to what we feel makes us, a successful school. We believe that:
Pupils need to feel safe and happy
Pupils should be fully engaged and immersed into a wide range of learning activities
Opportunities should be provided both in and out of the classroom
All pupils, regardless of ability, should be given every opportunity to achieve their full potential
We are immensely proud of all the students we teach and have taught and would encourage anyone who shares our values to come and join our family at Kinver High.
