“We chose King’s for our son and daughter as we liked the idea of a single-sex education for the senior years 7-11 and then co-education for the Sixth Form. I feel this model is beneficial. King’s also offers fantastic extra-curricular opportunities in sport, music, hobbies and trips which helps to develop good all-rounders, as well as focusing on academia.” Parent of Year 7 and Year 9 pupils.
“How can I sum up how fab I think King’s is in only a few words? After deciding that independent education would suit our two daughters, we felt that King’s offered everything we as a family were looking for. It offers high educational standards coupled with exceptional pastoral care. We like the fact that children can navigate through the education system on two closely linked sites whilst enjoying single-sex education during the senior years. After being involved with King’s for 11 years we as a family feel we have definitely made the right choice.” Mrs Watkins, Year 4 and Year 10 parent
“We’re totally impressed with King’s – from the friendly atmosphere geared to get the very best out of its pupils to matching academic targets with an equally impressive range of sports and fun activities at lunchtime and after school – from tiddlywinks to Judo! The nurturing of a belief in oneself coupled with love and respect for others means the pupils are a delight to meet. The commitment of staff to all the above is achieved from a great consultation processes with parents and pupils. The future is being planned and we feel included in every way. Our daughter is clear that school is not just about academic success, rather an opportunity to broaden her mind and her skills.” Year 8 parent
“Our children, one girl and one boy, had different personalities and therefore very different needs from a school. One child hugely benefited from the very structured teaching and environment at King’s, and the passion and enthusiasm for their subject by the staff was of great importance. The school is well-ordered and pupils are extremely well-prepared. One child wanted to do absolutely everything, and had to be reined in a little, to avoid exhaustion! The school provided innumerable opportunities to broaden horizons both within the curriculum and outside it. Both children have achieved at the very highest levels academically. This fact is, to us, a very happy by-product of our main requirement from a school which is to provide an excellent education in a place the children are happy to attend.” Parent of Senior children
