History of The King's School

In 1982, a young Christian teacher with a big vision, decided to leave the security of state school teaching and, together with a few friends and their children, set up The King’s School.

40 years later, we are a thriving independent school with exams results recognised as 'extraordinary' by our recent ISI inspection.

Over the past 40 years we have seen God's provision and blessing over The King's School, its staff and pupils. We look forward with expectation to what God will do over the next 40 years and beyond.

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."

Hebrews 13:8

The King’s School has been making a difference to young people's lives for more than 40 years.

Useful information

Clubs

We offer a range of lunchtime clubs for both primary and senior pupils and a range of different after school music and sports clubs. Seniors benefit from after school GCSE Revision clubs from the Spring Term onwards.

Wraparound care

Parents can book their children into breakfast club from 8.00am and after school club until 4.30pm on a weekly basis. Sessions can be booked via our school shop. Senior pupils may arrive on site from 8.00am and stay until 4.30pm (parental consent required for all after school activities). Parents must let us know in advance if they need to pick up their children later than 4.30pm.

Non-selective

There is no requirement for prospective pupils to complete an entrance exam. However, we do not offer vocational courses in the senior school and pupils must be able to access the GCSE curriculum across a range of subjects.

Transport

We do not have school buses but the school is well served by local transport networks. Parents often organise their own lift shares.

Parent parking

We have very limited parking onsite. St Swithun’s Wells Catholic Church very kindly allow us to use their car park for pick up and drop off only for Primary parents. We ask Senior parents to park considerately in neighbouring roads further away from the school. When dropping your child off please park without blocking or obstructing any property or access routes owned by residents. We value the new community that has grown around our school and are keen to develop positive relationships with those living nearby.  

Lunch

Most pupils bring in a packed lunch but we offer a limited lunch service of sandwiches, jacket potatoes and pasta salad which pupils can order on a daily basis. Parents are invoiced accordingly.

"Anyone considering The King’s School for their children, will be making the best decision they have ever made for their academic, spiritual, emotional and social growth. Both my children attended the school and I have no doubt that the environment and staff played a key role in their development to encounter and thrive in the world."

Mrs Pole

"My son joined The King’s School in Year 2. The teachers, right from the start, identified his needs and made recommendations to assist him – provided us with guidance and support throughout, which made such a huge difference to my son who needed both behavioural and educational support"

Mrs Hamilton

"We've been part of The King’s School family for 7 years. We've seen our children grow in stature, maturity and their own personal faith. At no other school will you ever be given a prophetic word or verse of Scripture for your child! They're loved, cherished and valued by ALL the staff as if they were their own children."

Mrs Boxall

"The King’s School has been a huge blessing to us and our children. They love learning here, they love the teachers, they love the atmosphere. We’d recommend it to anyone."

Mr Hicks

"The King’s School's been an amazing experience for not only our children, but for our entire family. The school welcomed our family when we moved to the area, other parents and children were incredibly supportive and kind, and we instantly felt at home."

Mrs Shergill

"The King’s School is beautiful, inside and out! Every day our daughter learns so much more than just phonics and maths, she learns who she is and what she can do as an individual, and this school not only allows her to do this but encourages and supports her in every aspect."

Mrs Price

"The King's School is incredible. The staff are amazing and really care about & know all the children so well. Our girls have come on in leaps & bounds since joining. We love the atmosphere and the whole ethos. Couldn't imagine them being anywhere else now. "

Mrs Mullane

"Fantastic School. I have 1 in senior in his last year, and 2 in primary. The communication between staff and parents is very good. The kindness shown by staff throughout the primary school clearly inspires the pupils to emulate this towards each other. Highly Recommended."
