Smaller Class Sizes
For the academic arc of our curriculum we only employ highly talented and successful teachers who have a proven record of classroom success. At King’s your child will be allocated a house within our House system. This means that your child will be cared for by their form tutor and taught to value their community. There are never more than 24 children in one class!
Leadership and Character Building
Leadership is our specialism. At every stage of your child’s education we offer a multitude of enrichment opportunities to develop their leadership skills and prepare them for life in the twenty first century.
2 Our Approach
Education in England has been subject to much change over the last few years. King’s School offers a much more traditional approach and is committed to delivering an excellent education for your child.
During their time with us we offer focused learning experiences which aim to immerse students into themes related to higher education, highly skilled professions and beyond. For example, students set their own university and career trajectory from year 7. They research what they want to be, what qualifications they need to get there and how they are going to do it.
