Governors Introduction

The King's represents a fabulous opportunity as a Church of England secondary school which welcomes all faiths and cultures. The Christian ethos permeates across all of our work and we celebrate unity in diversity - diversity of those of Christian faith, those of other faith and those of no faith. Our students work together in a school which strives for excellence in all areas. Our students flourish together and develop respect and understanding for each otherso that they are prepared for their adult lives in modern Britain. All visitors to the school comment on the warmth of the welcome and the calm, harmonious atmosphere around the school and the focussed attitude of our students.

Academically we establish good working habits in an environment which is conducive to study right from Year 7. This demonstrates our commitment to bringing about effective learning whilst maintaining concern for the individual.

Although we take great pride in our high achievers, we are particularly proud that all of our students leave school with sound qualifications on which to build their future. We have the highest proportion of students continuing in education and employment in Britain.
