The King’s School is a happy and successful 11-16 school, where all students are valued, regardless of their background or ability. We have four key values: We count in ones; We do common things uncommonly well; We act with compassionate rigour; We embrace the challenge to improve, for us, simply put – This is King’s.

We are very proud of our school. In June 2017, The King’s School was judged as a ‘Good’ school by Ofsted. We are now embarking on our journey towards 'Outstanding'.
