Our Vision & Mission
Increase learning outcomes for all students intellectually and spiritually, by increasing the quality of teaching and learning with a Christ-centred, Bible-based worldview, and the development of strategic, innovative learning facilities
Kingsley College; commissioned to educate, equipping students to love and serve Christ and their world, with a deep sense of purpose.
Who We Are
Kingsley College was founded by John Alley and Peace Christian Church in 1993, to educate and lead students to full maturity of thought and Christian love with a clearly established sense of vocation in their service to Christ and the world. We believe that the Word of God is the foundation of true education. The Lordship of Christ is paramount and evidenced in the atmosphere of the College.
Kingsley College has seen a steady growth of students over the last decade. With increased demand and ongoing community support, the College is well equipped for targeted future growth. We are now poised to develop the next 5-year strategic plan with a focus on Masterplanning.
Re-branding to the name of Kingsley College and the update of our online presence is the perfect launchpad for the next phase of College development.
The College now has more than 140 students studying on campus and via distance education. This growth has also been met with increasing stability in the current teaching and support staff which have both reflected the strong leadership at the College.
The governance structure is robust with Chair and Board members actively participating in the strategic improvement processes and increased development of the college. The College’s finances have remarkably improved over the last few years and is now well placed to start investing in the future sustainability and capital development of the College.
The College will promote the pursuit of excellence in all academic endeavours within a Christian context where learning proceeds according to the ability of each individual child. We believe that the responsibility for the education of children lies primarily with their parents. The Bible gives the instruction:
“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
In seeking a school to assist with this training, Christian parents should select an academic institution which will reinforce Biblical values.
A Christian School should support and assist parents in their God-given task of bringing up children in the “discipline and instruction of the Lord”. The role of parents is recognised as integral to the education of their children. The authority of parents is respected and their involvement highly valued. The College recognises that its authority, though derived ultimately from God, is delegated to it from the parents and the Church. Areas that are primarily the responsibility of the family or the Church are not usurped, but will be supported by the College. Teachers, parents and students come together as a community of learners where they are mutually supportive of each other.
The Philosophy of the College finds expression through the following specific aims:
- To develop the spiritual, social, academic and physical potential of each student in a caring and disciplined environment.
- To assist each student towards a mastery of the basic academic and cognitive skills while also encouraging creativity in all areas of the curriculum.
- To provide a balanced school program in which the Christian faith forms an essential part of the life of the College.
- To foster in each student a desire to serve God and others in the community.
- To develop a love for Christ and truth, to adopt a set of Godly values and to accept responsibility for one’s actions.
- To train students in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship.
