The Kingsley School in Royal Leamington Spa is an independent day school educating boys aged 3 to 11 and girls aged 3 to 18. 

Academic attainment is an important part of school life, but not the only aspect of a Kingsley education that is valued; the Kingsley ethos encourages intellectual curiosity and a love of learning, helping pupils to become well-mannered, well-rounded and well-qualified. A wide range of musical, dramatic and sporting successes are equally celebrated and the opportunity for individuals to shine in these activities provides Kingsley girls, and boys in Prep, with a challenging but balanced education. At Kingsley, a pupil is a name, not a number.
