Welcome to The King's School

Welcome to The King's School where we value every member of our learning community and aim to foster their unique talents and abilities to enable "Success for All".

We are a thriving and highly successful learning community of around 1,000 students. As a forward-looking and dynamic school we are committed to both individual and collective success – large enough to offer a wide range of subjects for study, yet small enough to be able to value every student and foster their unique talents and abilities to achieve our motto of ‘Success for All’.

We are fortunate to lead such a school. We love our jobs and never cease to be amazed by our youngsters who not only reach for the stars, but often touch them.

We hope that you will be keen to join us and look forward to the positive contribution you can make to our learning community.

Julie Craig & Barbara Tibbetts
Co-Headteachers
