International Admissions

King’s welcomes families who are relocating from overseas or other parts of the UK. We believe that children who join us with experience of other cultures enrich the King’s community. 

We have considerable experience of families relocating into the area and understand that each application comes with its own special set of circumstances. We have a flexible approach and treat each child as an individual. With our outstanding pastoral system, we find that children settle very quickly into their new life at King’s.

Admissions Process

All enquiries are dealt with on a personal basis by a member of our Admissions team, ensuring the smoothest transition possible. We will either liaise directly with a family or with a relocation agent. We understand the scale of the decisions being taken and the anxieties, as well as excitement, that can come with relocations. 

Following an initial enquiry, our Admissions department will arrange for families to visit King’s, where this is possible, and to meet with pupils, relevant staff and the Principal. Entrance assessments are required; however overseas applicants unable to come to King’s may sit the papers in their own school under supervised conditions. Interviews for Senior pupils may take place via Teams or Zoom.

We also offer help and advice about the curriculum and the timing of the academic year to help the transition into the English system. We aim to be as flexible as possible and try our best to accommodate students at whatever the time of the relocation. The key to making the transition work is good communications at every stage of the process.
