We help young people to develop the ambition to compete with their peers from Europe, Asia and America and every year our eighteen year-old leavers go on to a wide variety of elite universities in the UK, Spain and the USA. They carry with them impressive personal qualities which ensure that they are in pole position in an increasingly competitive global job market. I am proud of the fact that all of our pupils have the confidence to look adults in the eye and engage in a mature conversation, whether they are speaking English or Spanish.
Visitors to King’s College often comment on our welcoming atmosphere, the friendliness of our school and the positive relationships between pupils and staff. Learning to co-operate, be part of a team and to respect other people and yourself are central to our mission.
King’s College offers the academic rigour along with the values and traditions of a top independent school in England. But like the best schools in the UK, we are a thoroughly modern, affordable, unpretentious organisation looking to the future and not interested in congratulating ourselves on past glories.
It would be a pleasure to welcome you to King’s College on an ordinary working day. Preparing young people for life is what we do best. I hope we have the opportunity to do the same for your child.
