Frequently Asked Questions
What are the class sizes at King’s?
A maximum academic class size is 24 but usually will be around 20, especially once pupils start to make option choices. Pastorally children are in Forms for Lower Years (Years 7 and 8) and then join Houses from Year 9. A pastoral year group class in a House would be around 15 pupils. For Sixth Form the maximum academic class size is 16.
What are the timings of the school day?
The School day runs from 8.30am to 3.40pm. The site opens earlier and closes later for extracurricular activities to take place and some areas of the school, for example the Library are fully staffed until just before 6.00pm each evening. Catering is available before school for breakfast and after school for snacks.
How many children join King’s from outside the King’s foundation?
Approximately 40 children join us from external schools in Year 7 and then more join at 12+/13+ and 14+. We also have a good intake of external students into our Sixth Form.
How does induction / transition work?
We run a full induction and transition programme for children. In 2021 we are having to work around Covid-19 restrictions however in all cases we make sure that new pupils are able to meet with their new pastoral group. For Year 7 for example, we invite all children in to school the day before the school year starts, so that they are comfortable with where their Form Room is, take a tour of the school and to meet staff and other children.
