The King’s School (registered charity no. 1106136) exists to provide quality Christian education for pupils aged 4-16. It was established in 1982 by a Christian teacher with a big vision, together with friends and their children, to provide a Christian alternative to state education. 40 years later we are the largest independent Christian school of our kind in the UK. We have a faithful and passionate parent community, a professional faith filled staff team, and thriving pupils whose spiritual development was described as excellent and exam results were recognised as ‘extraordinary’ by our recent ISI inspection (Jan 2023).

So what makes us unique?

Our heart is to enable pupils to develop a strong relationship with God. We achieve this by equipping pupils spiritually as well as academically, through emphasising Wisdom (academic achievement), Stature (personal development) and Favour (relational development).

We are not a school for the rich, but a school for parents who want a safe, passionate Christian environment for their children. To remain affordable for Christian families, our fees are significantly lower than most independent schools. We offer assisted places to Christian families who are unable to afford the fees.

"Jesus grew in wisdom, stature and in favour with God and man"

Luke 2:52

How can you help us?

We have a business model and a heart for growth. Our vision is to fill our school to capacity, reaching and blessing more families. We are restricted by a poor quality primary school building which requires replacement. We are pursuing the development of a new building, at a cost of £2M. As a result of this investment, pupil growth is forecast to a near full capacity of 290 pupils by 2028-29.

A New Primary Building

Our primary classes are located in temporary accommodation no longer fit for purpose. Repair costs are high, educational facilities are out of date and the building is unattractive to potential new admissions into Year R, causing a genuine negative impact on our ability to fill all pupil spaces.

The Planned Project

We have selected an experienced modular build contractor who has a heart for our school - the build cost is £2M. Planning permission has been approved and the potential build start date is May 2024, working to a completion date of Friday 13th December 2024.

Donations

We are seeking financial donations to support with:

  • additional building costs
  • establishing an ‘assisted places fund’ to support lower income families
  • relieving the burden of debt on the school

Financial targets

Through raising additional funds we hope to relieve existing financial burdens (mortgage, build costs), enhance our offering of assisted places and improve our existing buildings. Our main income comes from tuition fees from paying parents which will increase as a consequence of the additional pupil intake when we launch our new primary building.

Tagline

Immeasurably More

“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21

£2M - £500k

We are seeking to engage with philanthropic givers who feel an affinity for our heart and the work we are doing at The King’s School; to those who recognise the need for a Christian school environment in a world that puts increasing pressure on young people; to those who believe we can succeed in changing young lives.

£275k Assisted Places Fund

We are looking for supporters to donate directly into a new, restricted assisted places fund to provide school places for Christian families on lower incomes who would not otherwise be able to benefit from our unique, Christ-centred environment. We are also embarking on a number of smaller fundraising projects to  enhance the assisted places fund.

Monthly Giving

We are developing our community of alumni, friends and supporters, asking for regular, monthly giving of:

£10, £25 or £100 per month  

But don't just listen to us...

Our recent ISI inspection and parent testimonials showcase the positive work we achieve at our school in the lives of our pupils.
