Welcome from the Headmaster of King's School in Macclesfield, one of the best performing independent day schools in England

Head's Welcome


King’s is one of England’s great independent schools, with a history stretching back more than five centuries, a reputation for delivering outstanding education and an impressive modern campus with enviable facilities.

Learning and personal development are at the heart of all that we do. 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 news, our ISI Inspection Report and to visit us to experience King’s first-hand.

Mr Jason Slack, Headmaster

We are both an academic school, with outstanding results, and a school that focusses on character development for our young people. We offer a broad education with a remarkable range of extra-curricular opportunities and experiences, ensuring that our pupils leave us with both the academic results and the personal skills and attributes that they will require for success long after they leave school. 

We aim to challenge our pupils to aspire, work hard and achieve great results. We provide a vibrant curriculum that is designed to keep pupils engaged, challenged and eager to learn. 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.

Importantly, ours is a nurturing and supportive environment, which produces happy, polite and civic-minded young people. We are also a forward-looking school and are proud of our fantastic 80-acre  campus, which boasts some of the best educational, sporting and outdoor facilities of any school. 

King’s offers families a number of unique advantages:
