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 making sure all barriers to learning are removed wherever possible.

We're very proud of our school: in June 2017 The King’s School was judged as a ‘good’ school by Ofsted. We're now embarking on our journey towards 'outstanding'.
