Opportunities beyond the classroom
The King’s School offers a range of extra-curricular opportunities in which students can participate, providing enrichment and variety beyond the classroom.

Extra-curricular activities are an integral part of the ethos of the school, providing students with opportunities to enhance their personal development, extending students’ learning experience beyond the classroom and into the wider community, developing and encouraging experience and expertise in areas not provided for within the formal curriculum.

Overseas Trips


Year 10 and 11 students have the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Rwanda, based in Kigali for two weeks. Students visit local churches and schools, teaching lessons in primary schools as well as working with students at the Vocational Secondary School opened by Equip, the charity linked to our school. Students will also visit a selection of other primary and secondary schools where they sing, perform dramas, share their testimonies and preach the gospel. In addition to this, students will experience the local culture and no trip to Africa would be complete without a visit to a game park!

This is an amazing opportunity to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel” and, without exaggeration, it is a life changing opportunity for the whole team.

The school runs a bi-annual ski trip, usually to France, which is open to pupils in Years 8 to 11.

Students who have not skied before, or who need a refresher course, will have the opportunity to have lessons at the Alpine Centre Southampton.
