Academic Excellence

The young people who come to King's do outstandingly well academically. The school is not only the highest-ranking school in Worcestershire, but it is among the Top 10 in the West Midlands*. Pupils thrive because they enjoy what is on offer and throw themselves into the opportunities which school life presents and push themselves to give their best. They develop a passion for learning inside and outside the classroom, a curiosity about the world and a desire to know more about it.

The King’s Warmth

Pupils’ happiness and wellbeing is at the heart of life at King’s. Children benefit from a deeply supportive Form and House system with experienced Heads of Lower and Middle Years. Our pupil-led Peer Support network, a range of dedicated support staff in our Health and Wellbeing Centre and fee-inclusive Learning Skills support, as well as an extensive PSHE programme of study, ensure that King’s provides the highest level of pastoral care.

A World of opportunity
Discovering new experiences and getting involved in activities that stretch both mind and body are what
make the days at King’s special. In addition to music, drama and sporting activities, there are over 100 clubs that are enjoyed by pupils. From chess and Mandarin to sub-aqua and climbing, there is something for everyone. For the adventurous there is The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme where pupils have received an exceptional 79 gold awards over the last 3 years, a Cadet Force that has achieved outstanding success in regional and national competitions, and the school’s own outdoor activity centre in the beautiful Welsh mountains.

First-class facilities
Pupils have access to a range of state-of-the-art facilities. For sport we have the award-winning boathouse that has helped us maintain our reputation as one of the top rowing schools in the country, our on-site 25m swimming pool, a modern sports hall, specialist strength and conditioning gym, all-weather hockey pitch
and 46 acres of scenic playing fields which are over looked by the Cathedral. We have drama and dance studios, and our own 300 seat theatre, where over 100 plays have been produced. Our magnificent Art School is built over three floors and includes five studios, workshops, offices, a gallery, an art library and ICT space.

Alive with history
The Cathedral provides an awe-inspiring, inspirational backdrop to our campus and a sense of history permeates every brick of our remarkable school, from the medieval Edgar Tower which houses one of the oldest classrooms in Europe, to the ancient College Hall. Around every corner, stunning, contemporary architecture blends seamlessly with the ancient fabric of the school, encapsulating the school’s ethos perfectly, respecting the school’s proud history and traditional values, whilst embracing technology and innovative teaching methods.
