About Us

King’s offers families a number of unique advantages:

A small school within a large school

King’s has all the advantages of a large school, with fine buildings and facilities, an unrivalled range of extra-curricular opportunities, and a reputation for attracting the very best teaching staff. But we operate within four, smaller Divisions each with its own Principal, pastoral team and intimacy of a ‘small school within a school.’ Every single child is valued as an individual and their talents are nurtured. We pride ourselves on our exceptional pastoral care. Our pupils experience a friendly, small-school atmosphere with the support of an impressively large group of talented staff.

Academic and well-rounded

Our pupils do extremely well academically and our exam results put us amongst the top performing independent schools in the country. We challenge our pupils to aspire, work hard and achieve great results. But there is more to life than exam results: we want pupils to enjoy learning and become ambitious and well-rounded individuals. King’s offers a whole world of exciting opportunities from regular sporting, musical and cultural activities to exploring the highest peaks and volunteering in remote parts of the globe. Whether in the Infants or Sixth Form, pupils will develop talents they never knew they had.

Space to grow and learn

King’s is fortunate to be located on extensive sites in rural Cheshire, on the edges of the Peak District, and yet only half an hour from Manchester.

Our large rural estates give children the space they need to learn and flourish. We make the most of our on-site amenities including extensive outdoor sporting facilities, drama halls, ICT suites, gymnasiums, sports hall and even our own wildlife meadow. We also make the most of our local environment as well as towns and cities further afield, using our fleet of minibuses to access the Lake District, North Wales, Peak District and parts of Yorkshire.

As well as our two teaching sites at Fence Avenue and Cumberland Street, we have a further 20 acres of competitive sports pitches and a pavilion at our Derby Fields site. Combined with our two Astro pitches, cricket nets, netball and tennis courts, cricket field, rugby pitches and athletics tracks, our pupils have all the space and scope they need for a wide range of activities.
