The King's School in Macclesfield


      Welcome from the Principal

      Welcome to King's Sixth Form where we continue the pattern of academic excellence found throughout the school. In the Sixth Form, boys and girls study together in a co-educational setting for the important final two years at school. Our students have consistently achieved some of the best A Level results in the country, typically with 80% of all grades at A* - B. However, the emphasis is not just on good results, but on supporting well-rounded individuals who are well prepared for university applications and the world of work.

      We believe in a disciplined environment, but we also appreciate the importance of fostering independent learning, personal organisation and a balance between work and play.  The majority of our students study three A Levels, although in some cases (often where Further Mathematics is studied) four subjects are chosen.

      A breadth of learning is maintained through an Extended Studies programme which includes an iGCSE in Global Perspectives in Year 12, and the prestigious Extended Project Qualification or an alternative qualification in Year 13. Students also enjoy a wealth of recreational activities, support for university applications, plus time for private study and tutorials.

      In addition to our many students who have studied at King's for GCSEs, we also welcome around 10 - 15% of our students from other schools and they very quickly find themselves at home in our friendly and vibrant Sixth Form.

      Please do come and visit us: we would be delighted to welcome you at our Open Evening in the Autumn term and share what King's Sixth Form has to offer.
