Basic Information & Location
The King’s School is a selective British co-educational independent school for both day and boarding pupils in the English city of Canterbury in Kent.
King’s possesses the kick of developing individual passions that often become lifelong pursuits: sporting, musical and artistic opportunities abound for every pupil.
The King’s academic programme is designed to encompass both depth and breadth. The focus remains, therefore, upon developing the individual in the fullest possible sense. In terms of academic development, this means focusing upon the quality of learning recognising the needs of the time in which they live and encouraging an enquiring mind that loves learning for learning’s sake.
Boarding / Pastoral Care
All pupils, whether Boarding or Day, are members of a House under the care of a Housemaster/Housemistress. Each house also contains a Matron and a Tutor team. All academic staff are attached to a House and are allocated a tutor group, which consists of approximately ten pupils drawn from across all year groups.
The co-curricular side of life at King’s both complements and enhances the development of the enquiring mind. Sport takes place on three afternoons, as well as on Saturday for school fixtures. Music, drama and art play an important part in the life of the school. Concerts, plays and exhibitions take place regularly. King’s week, held at the end of the school year, is a week-long festival of all the arts.
