King's College School Parent Reviews



Average Parent Rating


“Highly recommended”


My son is currently in Y9 after the competitive 11 plus and absolutely happy at school. The atmosphere is warm and encouraging although it is academically challenging. A lot of interesting activities for sports, music and many other initiatives also should be highlighted. Teachers and staffs are engaging and very approachable. Overall, I believe it was the best decision I have made for my son.

King's College School Catchment Area Map

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK. Contact the school directly or visit their website for more information on Admissions Policy and Procedures.
