Welcome to our Senior School

Our Senior School is about opening minds to the love of learning. This is a time of adventure and challenge during which pupils discover themselves and their world, growing in knowledge and self-confidence along the way. Our role is to provide them with every opportunity to find out what they like and want to do in life and to encourage their curiosity.

Our focus is on scholarship and academic excellence, as it has been for King’s for centuries. We also embrace new ideas and new technologies, wherever they enhance learning and give a winning edge. We’ve been around for 475 years, but our Senior School never stands still. It is an exciting, energising and empowering community of learning.

In 2019, 26% of GCSE results were grade 9, with 48% at 9/8 and 84% 9/6. Students achieved 69% of grades at A*-A or 9-7 placing King’s as the top performing school in Cheshire for GCSEs.
 

A fantastic, vibrant and friendly environment in which your child can attain high academic goals while nurturing their interests and passions, whatever they may be.
