Introduction to water knowledge
The surf club is a staple of Kingsley, and over the last 14 years, hundreds of pupils have had the opportunity to develop their water and surfing knowledge further. Taking place after school, on a Wednesday for the Senior school and Tuesday for the Junior school, it is perfect for the pupils that want to get extra surfing in! Fun, recreational and informative; the aim is to consolidate your surf basics and have fun!

Residential holiday surf camps
Our boarding aim is to be the best home away from home, and Kingsley is your home located just 5 minutes from one of North Devon's best and safest beaches where our boarders can enjoy all the benefits of the ocean.
The benefits on our mental well-being of living a lifestyle near the sea are well documented. Combining this with the sport of surfing enhances the positive effects and is now often prescribed by doctors to aid mental health. There is tons of opportunity if they like spending more time in the water than on land, from weekends, after school and half-term sessions, to dedicated holiday camps. We deliver it all.

Go surfing when the conditions are best
Blue Mind is a term that refers to the state of calm, peacefulness and overall well-being that people experience when they are near, in or on water. It encom- passes the physiological and psychological benefits of being near water.
