The King’s School is a happy and successful 11-16 school, where all students are valued, regardless of their background or ability. We treat students with respect and give them a fighting chance in life by providing them all with equality of opportunity and ensuring that all barriers to learning are removed wherever possible.
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'.
