PVA Admissions

Kingsmead School is a Specialist School in the Performing and Visual Arts (PVA) and is able to select 10% of students based on their aptitude in Art, Drama, Music and Dance, their ability to develop their skills in these subjects and their commitment to these subjects.

The application process begins in September. 

Students who have been successful will be closely monitored and supported by our Specialist Arts staff and the Head of Year 7. They will be offered many performance opportunities and other exciting extra-curricular qualifications such as taking part in a LAMDA performance exam free of charge, or completing a Bronze Arts Award.

If your child has secured a place as a music candidate they will also have the opportunity to receive FREE music instrumental lessons. Vocalists will be offered the same opportunity.

Students admitted under our P&VA criteria will be required to attend P&VA workshops and extra-curricular clubs to ensure the learning experience is maximised. There is also one weekly compulsory extra lesson after school giving these students extra teaching time for their specialist area of talent.

The Application Round for September 2024 is now closed.
