      King’s Locations

      One of the special things about King's is its semi-rural setting, which offers enormous advantages over city sites.

      As well as having our own wildlife meadow and extensive sports facilities, the town of Macclesfield is a historic market town on the edge of the Peak District and fringed by hills, villages, forests and canals.

      In the centre of Macclesfield, our Cumberland Street site (SK10 1DA) serves both King's Boys’ Division and Sixth Form. Half a mile to the east, our Fence Avenue site (SK10 1LS) houses King's Girls’ Division, plus our Infant & Junior Division.
