Welcome to The King's School
We are a thriving, 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’.
Our highly qualified, dedicated staff and governors work tirelessly to provide the very best teaching and learning experience for each student. We are a fully comprehensive, inclusive school committed to providing equal access to a wide range of opportunities and creating a climate for learning in which every student is able to achieve his or her best.
High expectations for, and of, our students are set within a caring and supportive framework with high standards of achievement and behaviour. Individuals in our diverse community respect and value each other, whilst our extensive system of rewards and celebrations encourages the ambition to succeed.
Excellent examination results complement a superb extra-curricular programme, providing many exciting opportunities beyond the classroom. Our success is highly dependent on well-established, effective partnerships and strong relationships between students, staff, parents, and the wider communities – local, national and international. As part of The Pontefract Academies Trust, we work closely with our neighbouring Secondary and Primary schools, learning and developing best practice to raise standards for all the children in and around Pontefract.
We are a happy and energetic school, committed to pursuing excellence in all that we do. We hope you will be keen to join us and look forward to the positive contribution you can make to our learning community.
