Why our results are so good

The King’s School is a place of great security for pupils.  We believe that each child has a destiny.  We aim to prepare pupils to be secure in who they are so that with God’s grace they can be all He has created them to be.

We join up the dots between home life, church life and school so that students can see that God is interested in and relevant to every aspect of their lives.  We are delighted that over many years our students have achieved exam results to be proud of.

Our most recent results can be seen here.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.  It is the Lord Christ you are serving – Colossians 3 verses 23-25
