Investing in the future

Exceptional learning environments for adventurous minds

A series of significant projects are planned to enrich the learning environment for pupils at KES.

An extended and enhanced Sixth Form Centre, with design input from pupils, is already in the build phase and will provide a contemporary setting for these young adults. Facilitating a mix of workstyles and supporting increased independent learning at this stage of the school, as well as encouraging positive social interaction, the new setting will echo co-working hubs found in cities and in Higher Education, introducing pupils to 21st-century working patterns.

Alongside the Sixth Form Centre will be a significant classroom development, which will provide much-needed increased teaching capacity within the School. The new building will be principally used for Modern Languages, incorporating specialist facilities and resources, supporting pupils as they perfect their skills and knowledge and extend ther understanding of a country's culture and current affairs, preparing them to be outward-looking, global citizens.

The rooms freed up by Modern Languages will be transformed into additional Science labs to match pupils demand in STEM subjects. Already at Year 7 and distinctively in Bath, pupils are taught Sciences as single subjects with specialist teaching putting practical work front and centre, with a vocational and problem-solving approach. Additional labs will increase these opportunities for pupils as part of an in-depth enhancement of this area of study at KES, aimed at inspiring tomorrow's scientists.

If you are able to help us shape this exciting learning environment at KES, you can give online or contact Karen Teague, Development Director, by email:
