It came into being through the government’s Free School programme. The founding resident and community group behind the school is called Ingleby Manor Foundation Trust (IMFT), whilst our education partner is Delta Academies Trust.

As with every other state school in the UK, the school is free to attend. Opening with just year 7 in 2014/15, the school will grow each year with the sixth form starting in September 2019. The main school will be full by September 2018.

Our school is characterized by teaching that develops successful learners, by pastoral systems that promote confident individuals and by an ethos throughout the school of mutual respect that encourages responsible citizens. All staff and students at Ingleby Manor are respectful of each other and supportive of our group and individual goals.

Over the course of five years our students will receive over 1000 hours of additional tuition compared to a typical school offering 25 hours a week of lessons. This is the equivalent of a whole extra year of learning between the ages of 11 and 16. We focus very much upon thinking and deduction skills as we prepare our students in a way which encourages innovative approaches, confident argument and close analytical skill when sitting formal examinations.

Backed by an education partner (the Delta Academies Trust) with wide experience and strong resources, students attending Ingleby Manor will be taught in smaller than usual classes and will expect to receive high quality, innovative, teaching in an enriched curriculum offer. Our longer school day means we have the chance to offer a wider range of activities and we will be offering students the chance to pursue their own strengths and interests from an early age.

We regularly join sporting competitions with our friends from local schools. We open up our academy for craft mornings, Stay and Play, Stay and Read, Christmas and Summer Fairs and always our Friday celebration assembly. We are proud to say that now we have an adult Education class, where our parents are working towards recognised qualifications.

With our Good to be Green policy, pupils feel a sense of family and look out for each other. They work hard and enjoy playing harmoniously together. Our flagship behaviour incentive, Leading Learners, encourages pupils to be kind and caring, helpful and responsible, value learning and work hard.

Our curriculum is engaging and exciting. Last year alone, we had all kinds of visits and visitors. Pupils from F1 to Y6 enjoyed trips locally and places further away. Pupils have enjoyed the wealth of history and culture Hull has to offer. But they have also been to places like the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Beamish and Eden Camp too. We also have visitors too, like the dinosaur man and the WW2 lady. We regularly have themed weeks, like anti-bullying week, e-safety week and British Values Week. Our curriculum is brought alive through topic work.

We think about others too. Last year alone we raised well over £1000 for charity. Our charities were The British Heart Foundation, Hull Children’s University and Breathe for Cameron. We also held themed days, like Children in Need and the MacMillan coffee morning.

Parents and Carers are valued as vital in their contribution. Termly Parent Voice meetings raise challenges and we listen and respond. Leading pupils play their part too. Our Academy Council, Play Leaders and lunchtime monitors help shape the academy. Our Head Boy and Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Girl, along with four prefects are responsible and mature academy leaders. They are trusted role models and ambassadors for the academy.

Pupils here shoot for the stars. We are so excited about what the future holds for us.

At Kingston Park we seek to ensure that children are happy, feel important and are valued in an environment where they are encouraged to lead healthy lifestyles, where they can expand their experiences, where diversity is celebrated and where pupils develop a genuine love of learning.

Kingston Park Academy aims to provide an outstanding Community School that offers endless opportunity. A school where potential is unlocked and achieved. A school that touches the hearts and minds of stakeholders and the wider community, holds a positive place in the community and is recognised for its greatness.

To achieve this we recognise the need to:
Provide an environment which is both supportive and challenging; to develop likeminded professionals who work with mutual honesty, trust and respect.
Foster a forward thinking approach that allows us, as both individuals and a body to be ‘nimble’. To recognise our barriers but see them as challenges.
Encourage a ‘Maybe I can……’ attitude for our pupils. To instil in our pupils the idea of potential – regardless of the starting point. To develop lifelong learners so they see how much they can do, not what they can’t do.
Live the vision every day in every way – sprinkle success, achievement and aspiration in all that we do – feeding the lifelong learner in all of us.
