Welcome to King’s

Joining a new school is an exciting and sometimes a little daunting experience.  We all know what it’s like to start somewhere new and it’s important to remember that all pupils and teachers were once new to King’s. King’s is a very warm and welcoming school and we are all very much looking forward to you becoming part of our family 

We are sure that many of you will be feeling both excited and nervous about starting a new school. Tensure you’re ready for a brilliant year ahead, we have bought together everything you need to know about life in the Middle Years at King’s Worcester. 

On our ‘Joining King’s’ Hub you will find: 

Induction Events

You have now been invited to an Induction Event on Monday 28th June 2021. Here you will have an opportunity to experience a tour of the campus, meet your House Tutors & our Headmaster, Mr Doodes and also ask any questions you may have. Don’t forget to make a note of these questions as and when you think of them.  

We are all looking forward to getting to know you over the coming weeks and months. September will be here soon and, shortly after that, you will feel as though you have always been part of ‘Big King’s’! 

Getting Around King’s Worcester

We understand that moving to King’s from another school can feel a little daunting as it’s a big place with lots of buildings, facilities and classrooms to find. As we mentioned earlier, in the coming weeks we’ll be sending you a Virtual Tour so you can familiarise yourself with the King’s Senior campus before you start. In the meantime, you can download (and print) the map below.

Getting to (and from) King’s

Travelling to King’s Worcester is straightforward, as the city and school is served by a good road network, has two train stations, and many daily coaches/buses covering a wide radius and fitting in with the school day. For more information on all the different transport options, view the Transport page of our website.

Middle Years Uniform

Our uniform is a very important part of our identity and is designed to allow pupils to feel smart and comfortable in their day-to-day activities.

We are excited to announce that we are introducing a new uniform and sports kit across the Foundation. However, the existing uniform will be phased out over the next two years and initially, we will only be asking children starting in Year 7 in  September 2021 to purchase the new uniform, with it becoming mandatory for all pupils from September 2023.

We will ask that all new pupils joining in year 9, 10 & 11 join their year group peers in the current uniform.

For information on purchasing uniform, please visit our uniform hub
