King's School Prospectus - page 3

W e l c o m e
I aim to lead a happy school in which the rich diversity of abilities and interests
is recognised and valued. I believe that young people learn and develop best
with clear and consistent work and behaviour expectations and where praise,
enjoyment, consideration and respect are integral to the school’s life and ethos.
The school aims to inspire intellectual curiosity, a competitive spirit, and develop creative
thinking, a sense of social responsibility and leadership skills. A strong sense of community
underpins everything we do – learning to respect each others’ backgrounds and beliefs. We
value commitment, we celebrate success and we offer an environment which not only leads to
academic success but also to self discovery and a sense of personal worth.
Outside the classroom, we offer an excellent range of high quality opportunities: membership of
our thriving Combined Cadet Force; individual and team sports, foreign exchanges and travel,
participation in music, drama and many other activities.
At King’s we are committed to developing generations of young men who, when they leave
school, are fully rounded individuals with a host of skills and experiences equipping them for the
many challenges and opportunities they will face in adult life. Our prospectus can only convey
a sense of the school as a learning community. There is no substitute for seeing us first hand,
so if you are considering entry to The King’s School we will warmly welcome you at one of our
open evenings.
