King's is a thriving independent day school foundation consisting of three schools for boys and girls from the ages of 2 to 18. There are 930 pupils at the senior school and a further 520 in two Junior Schools, King's St Alban's (next to the Senior School site, ages 4-11) and King's Hawford (in a rural setting just north of the city, ages 2-11).
It is one of the leading academic foundations in the West Midlands and offers an outstanding educational experience. The Foundation of three schools was inspected at the end of 2011; click here to download the official report from ISI.
The senior school has one of the finest settings of any city school in the country. It borders the River Severn in the heart of Worcester and looks across to the Malvern Hills. It is adjacent to the Cathedral in an oasis of calm, away from the sound and sight of traffic, and yet two minutes' walk from the pedestrianised city centre and within easy walking distance of train and bus stations.
The King's senior school dates back to the time of Henry VIII and still maintains connections with the cathedral which were begun at that time. Our assembly hall was once the medieval refectory (dining room) of the Benedictine monastery.
The school combines a range of fine old buildings and green spaces with the most modern facilities and is, above all, a thriving community of high-aspiring young people and dedicated adults who engage with the local community.
