Come and Visit Us
We would encourage everyone to come and visit the Junior school and feel for themselves its unique and dynamic atmosphere. We organise an open morning and "King for a Day" discovery days.
The next open morning is on Saturday 12th October 2013, 9:30-12:00am. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet the pupils and teachers and see all the facilities of The King's School. The Junior Senior and Sixth Form sections are open.
Come and see the Junior School on a normal working day. Your child can experience activities with a class and parents can tour the school. The Discovery days are
*Tuition fees per term: £2825
Lunches (compulsory) £229
It is the governors' policy to keep fees to a minimum while maintaining and, where appropriate, improving the school's standards and facilities. They are normally reviewed annually, with any change coming into effect from September, and are only subject to further increase in any one year if external factors cause costs to rise at a substantially higher rate than anticipated. Parents normally receive a term's notice of any increase.
*includes all stationery, textbooks, standard exam fees and personal accident insurance
Bursaries are available in the Senior School and Sixth Form.
