The Kingsley School is situated in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England, just to the north of the town centre. Kingsley is an independent girls' day school taking girls from 3 to 18; the Junior School also takes boys up to the age of seven.

The senior school occupies an adapted and extended Victorian manor house. On the opposite side of the road the Junior School can be found. The nearby sixth form centre is self-contained, although retains the friendly atmosphere of the main school. The playing fields occupy a site on the outskirts of the town. Originally founded as a Church of England school, it now welcomes pupils of all faiths and of none.

History[edit]

The school was founded in 1884 by Rose Kingsley, daughter of Charles Kingsley, author of The Water Babies. It moved to its present site in 1922.
