New Campus

In July 2020, the School re-located to a stunning new £60-million campus on Alderley Road, Prestbury. The campus offers state-of-the-art accommodation for boys and girls aged 3 - 18. The impressive 80-acre rural site is between Macclesfield and Over Alderley and means that all of our pupils will be taught co-educationally from September 2020.

The development is the most ambitious in the King's School’s 518-year history and has provided us with some of the finest day school facilities to be found anywhere in the UK.

The School plans to keep the size of classes and year groups broadly in line with current numbers to retain our 'small school' feel and maintain the outstanding relationships between staff and pupils.

At the heart of the community

Dr John Kennerley, Chair of Governors at King’s, said, “The new campus will not only deliver fantastic facilities for our pupils, but enable us to develop further community use of the school beyond the 35 organisations that already share our facilities.”

Over its 500-year history, King’s has occupied a number of different sites in Macclesfield including the parish church, School Bank and King Edward Street. The School has operated on two sites since 1992 when it acquired and refurbished the former Macclesfield High School for Girls on Fence Avenue.
