To really appreciate all that King's has to offer, and to experience first-hand our friendly community, we would encourage you to visit our school. We offer both organised events, such as Open Days and Taster Days, as well as mid-week Tours which are for small groups of families (typically 2 or 3 families) or individual families (by request).
We would be delighted to welcome you on a normal school day to see us in action. We offer a list of dates when tours are available, usually in the mornings, so that you can see us on a normal working day. For details of available dates and to book, please contact the Admissions Department.
