Kingswood Secondary Academy

Ofsted Good


At Kingswood, we are delighted to have a very productive partnership with UniConnect.

UniConnect, formally the 'Pathways' National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) works closely with students and schools within the county. We are part of the Aspire Higher Consortium with the Universities of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, working across the three counties to develop and share opportunities and resources to encourage and support students progressing to Higher Education whether at University, Further Education or through Apprenticeships.  

Our Aspire Higher Hub website hosts an ever growing range of workshops, online opportunities, resources and signposting designed to support you and your student’s distance learning and engagement.

Students are being offered a variety of opportunities designed to enable them to think positively about their educational future.  Our students are participating in events which hopefully they are enjoying the range of activities we have been able to be involved in.

The Project Manager for the UniConnect programme is Simon Chapman. If you need to contact him please email
