About the school
Thank you for visiting our employer profile. We hope you’ll enjoy learning more about the excellent opportunities for teaching at The Kingsbury Green Academy and living in the nearby area.
Kingsbury Green Academy, which is part of the successful Ascend Learning Trust, opened its doors for the first time on the 5th of September 2019. We are an ambitious, forward thinking 11-18 Academy situated in a beautiful location on the outskirts of Calne in Wiltshire.
We are committed to achieving excellence together by:
- Challenging ourselves to seize every opportunity to grow and develop.
- Removing social, economic and academic barriers to enable students to realise their potential.
- Recognising that success is as a result of hard work and perseverance.
- Encouraging every individual to be bold, courageous and aspirational.
- Creating a culture where individuals respect one another and are proud of themselves, their school and the wider community.
The school has superb facilities which include: 13 Science Labs, a Design and Technology complex, digital media centre and the latest computer-aided design and ICT facilities.
Sport is important at Kingsbury Green and we enjoy a sports hall, gymnasium, tennis courts and 33 acres of sports fields, as well as the use of the neighbouring ‘Calne Community Campus.’
The Arts are supported with Art and Design studios, a photography dark room and processing facilities, fully equipped Drama studios and three purpose-built music rooms with practice rooms for instrumental tuition.
We also have a cafeteria with outdoor covered eating area, gardens, an on-site nursery (babies to pre-school) and a purpose-built Sixth Form Centre.
Our Campus is set on the edge of town, with views across the beautiful rolling Wiltshire countryside.
Calne offers a great rural quality of life but is not far from other nearby towns and the M4, giving easy access to Bristol and to the South West. Wiltshire is home to the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge and boasts many other sites of historical interest.
Calne is some 19 miles east of Bath, 6 miles east of Chippenham, 13 miles west of Marlborough and 16 miles south west of Swindon.
Ascend Learning Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
