Good Afternoon & Welcome

King's Norton Boys' School is a Comprehensive Secondary School, providing a full range of courses up to university entrance level for almost 750 boys between the ages of 11 and 18.

The school’s admission number for Year 7 in September 2007 is 120. As a Foundation School, KNBS uses the same admissions criteria as an LA school, and we work closely with Birmingham LA so that our pupils benefit fully from city-wide initiatives such as the Excellence in Cities programme.

The School is well known for its success in preparing boys for University and other Professional and Higher Education, but it is equally true that local employers recognise the quality of those who choose to go directly from school into employment.

The latest inspection of the School was carried out by OFSTED in December 2005, and the final report confirms that joining us is a very attractive prospect, both for staff and boys.

The accreditation of Specialist Science School status has extended further the opportunities not only for our students, but also for the students of our neighbouring schools with whom we share our skills and facilities.

 


"It is a privilege to be Headteacher at King's Norton Boys’ School. A school that is in the rare position of having a history to be proud of, a present to be envied, and a future that promises to be exceptional.

We maintain a healthy balance between developing the traditional values that are often missing in today’s society, and ensuring academic success through the use of the very latest teaching methods and technologies.

It is this school’s intention to equip our young men with the skills, talents and social attributes that will enable them to play a meaningful and successful role in tomorrows world. We believe there is more to developing successful young men than pandering to the league tables, even though this school has been assessed as being in the top 19% in the country for the progress the boys make from when they join us at 11 to when they sit their GCSEs at 16 or before. Academic excellence is important if young men are to become successful adults, but academic excellence only forms part of a much broader list of essential attributes necessary for our students to achieve their true potential.

At King's Norton boys’ we aim to develop those things that league tables don’t measure; integrity, respect, reliability, a sense of morality and self esteem. We push students in order to make them successful, not us. To us, every child really does matter.

The most recent OfSTED inspection report completed in December 2005 confirms that behaviour is ‘good’, bullying is rare and that “The school is a very caring community”. This year’s SATs results show that there are fewer than a dozen non selective schools in the city that can better our results and still Ofsted are confident that “the school has good capacity to improve further”

Joining King’s Norton Boys’ School always has been and still is a great prospect for both staff and boys."
