School Profile

The King's School Senior School educates girls and boys from 11 to 16 years of age with the majority continuing into the Sixth Form. The School is based approximately one mile from Chester and is on a site of some 32 acres with 12 sports fields and a floodlit astro turf, a swimming pool and eight Tennis courts.

Founded by Henry VIII, The King's School is proud of its historical tradition, but its vision for the future is forward-looking and the School's vision is to inspire young people to embark on life confident of their place in the world and able to become leaders in it. We aim to be one of the country's leading co-educational day schools, providing a transformative experience for all pupils within the King's family. The School harnesses and enriches the academic, creative, spiritual and physical potential of both staff and pupils. We aim to shape their way of thinking and experiencing the world and, through them and our work in local society, influence the world. In brief, a King's education aims at the pursuit of unpretentious excellence.

We believe that King's is an exceptional school. We admire tolerance, respect, integrity and strength of character. Boys and girls alike develop a genuine zest for learning, independence and mutual respect.

By the time they leave us, King's pupils are self assured, articulate, well-rounded men and women, prepared academically and socially for university and beyond.

The academic record of King's speaks for itself - we have a broad and stimulating curriculum. In the classroom the emphasis is on discussion, debate, research and critical thinking. Pupils are encouraged to challenge and question accepted notions by teachers whose passion and knowledge of their subject inspire and stretch young minds.
