Head's Welcome

King’s is one of England’s great independent schools, with a history stretching back for more than five centuries and a reputation for delivering outstanding education. We welcome boys and girls aged 3 - 18 into our dynamic, stimulating and happy co-educational learning environment.

I hope this website will give you a sense of our vibrant and caring school. I would encourage you to read our latest ISI Inspection Report and to visit us to experience King’s first-hand.

Dr Simon Hyde, Headmaster

We are both an academic school, with outstanding results, and a school that offers a broad education with a remarkable range of extra-curricular opportunities and experiences. We provide a vibrant curriculum that is designed to keep pupils engaged, challenged and eager to learn. Importantly, ours is a nurturing environment, which produces happy, well-rounded children.

We aim to challenge our pupils to aspire, work hard and achieve great results. Our pupils are confident and independent young people who are fully prepared for the challenges of the future. When they leave, they go on to study at the universities of their choice and excel in their chosen fields.

Whilst immensely proud of our heritage, we are also a forward-looking school with an exciting future set out in our 2020 Vision.
