Aylesbury Grammar School

Reflections on the Kitemark Experience

“I would fully recommend applying for the Kitemark award, to any school that would value external assessment of the success of their approach to character and support in further embedding and developing what they do. We gained so much useful feedback and ideas for taking our character education model to the next level. The rigorous but extremely supportive and friendly approach of our assessors, challenged our thinking by asking key questions, gave us useful vindication of key parts of our journey as well as providing specific points to consider as we take the next steps.”

Assessor Feedback

“A deep and thorough commitment to developing character was expressed across the whole of the school’s leadership and Governor team. Extensive engagement with parents, staff and pupils has led to Aylesbury Grammar developing a strong strategic approach to delivering on its character programme, over a number of phases. This has meant that the school has a character programme which successfully meets the needs of Aylesbury Grammar pupils, and is a clear sign of an outstanding School of Character.”
