King’s Academy Binfield (KAB) opened in a superb new building in September 2018 with 120 year 7 students, who were joined in September 2019 by a further 150 year 7 students and nursery and reception classes. Also in 2019, King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO), a one-form entry primary school a mile away opened. The academy will grow year on year to a roll of over 1800 students, aged 3-18. Both academies are run cohesively sharing the same leadership, staff, values, curriculum, opportunities, expectations of excellence and governance.
