Vision: Inspiring Individuals
Vision Statement: The KIS community aims to inspire students and other community members to challenge themselves to become better people, who in turn become inspiring individuals who help make the world become a better place.
The KIS community worked together to put into words what we believe in. Our aim is to inspire individuals, while we hope that our students and other members of the community in return can go out into the world and inspire others. The vision reflects the ethos of the school- our values of making a positive difference to students by recognizing them all as individuals, and to help make the world as a whole a better place.
Mission: To be an innovative and caring community that provides all of our students with the knowledge, inspiration and spirit to be proud of themselves and their place in the world.
