“It is the first time I can trust a school to educate my child”

unlock
"> My daughter joined the senior school in Year 7 last year. She comes from a state primary school. She absolutely loves the school and has had so much fun there. Everyday when I pick her up, she couldn't wait to tell me the interesting things that she learnt and played in school. To be honest, it is the first time I feel that I can trust a school to educate and develop my daughter since her schooling started. Many good traditional elements of British educational culture still existing at King Henry. Although places are offered by academic merit, it is a well-rounded school. There are max. 23 pupils in one class. It enables the teachers to give enough attention to each pupil. The relationship between teachers and pupils is very good and they care about the pupils. It is an independent school so the curriculum reflects this: Latin lessons, 2 additional languages, high standards of science subjects, instrument learning (optional). They have a reasonable amount of homework each day and it is marked properly by the teachers. Small topic tests are given very regularly throughout the year with an end of year exam. Therefore, parent support in learning at home is equally important. Parents are well-informed their children progress via grade card every 6 weeks. My daughter finds it manageable actually and enjoys learning. There is an indoor swimming pool and lesson is provided weekly with no extra cost. The school even gives some pupils free extra swimming lesson if they need to improve their skills. Other than that, pupils are encouraged to join a wide variety of lunch clubs, after school activities such as sports, arts, and volunteering. Games play an important part in the curriculum. However, it is not all about sports, it is also about teamwork, toughness and resilience. Moral themes are taught to develop pupils' characters. Pupils' behaviours and attitudes are good. My daughter has made many good friends and is very happy there. Bursary and scholarships are provided to the more able applicants. It is worth applying. I highly recommend King Henry to the other parents.
“Exceptionally High Quality & Well Rounded Education”

"> I highly recommend King Henry Viii School. The pupils attending this school achieve exceptionally high academic standards. However, the real strength of the school is how many opportunities it offers the young people. They can take part in a huge range of activities beyond the standard curriculum. Examples include Rock School, robotics, writing for the school magazine, climbing and extensive travel. Pupils can take part for pure enjoyment or, if they show a real talent, they can excel. Many pupils compete at county or national levels. The pastoral care is excellent. Students are taught life skills such as relaxation techniques. Parents are encouraged to be fully involved in their child's education and are always kept informed.
