Ethos and Values

"Your education is your life; guard it well"

(Proverbs 4:13)


All students are encouraged to acquire values and knowledge that underpin the Christian ethos of the school and develop an enjoyment of learning which will enable them to achieve a lifetime of fulfilment and success.

Our values are underpinned by our belief in  love for one another, summed up by the quote from 1 Corinthians 13:13 “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”  The school promotes an environment of mutual respect where all members of the community are equally valued and work together in an atmosphere of tolerance and good humour.



The values that permeate all our work within The King’s community are to promote the following:

  • Grace
  • Thankfulness
  • Trust
  • Justice
  • Aspiration
  • Celebration


As a Church school, there are links with the Parish Church of St Thomas'.  Iain Baker, vicar of St Thomas', leads whole school worship monthly and is often a presence around school - leading the weekly EXPLORE club, or in his capacity as a foundation governor.  Other members of the church serve as governors, and visit regularly to support the school and the learning of the children.
