Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to King’s College.

Students who graduate from King’s College have the greatest potential to be successful in life. They tell us that they look back on their time at King’s with great fondness and treasure the opportunities the school has provided them.

With a long history of strong academic performance, we understand what it takes to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skill to be able to succeed in what is a very dynamic future.

King’s College has an explicit teaching and learning philosophy. It is a learning community that embraces innovation, creativity and the best learning and thinking strategies. Technology is just one of those tools which excites the learning experience at King’s.

King’s College is renowned for providing outstanding educational opportunities for young men and women. The College seeks to provide the best all-round education it is possible to achieve, developing the mind, body and spirit of every student in its care. The school is an intellectually and academically rich educational environment. It promotes excellence in sport, art and culture.

The House system is fundamental to the pastoral support at King’s. Each House provides the sense of belonging and inclusion within our College, be it for boarders or day students. We strongly believe that the wellbeing of every student is of the greatest importance. The school’s vision and values outline our commitment to each student’s personal growth. Fundamental to the pastoral support is the Chapel, the physical and emotional heart of the College. This value-rich culture allows students to develop essential life skills and experience, pre-requisites to future success. 

As you and your family begin your consideration of King’s College as your future senior school, we invite you to visit the College to experience first-hand our unique learning community.
