King’s offers pupils a remarkable range of opportunities and experiences. From regular sporting, musical and cultural activities to climbing the highest peaks and exploring remote deserts.
Whether in the Infants or Sixth Form, pupils will discover passions and develop talents they never knew they had. We are committed to bringing out the best in every pupil, not making them conform to a single mould. King’s is a happy place to grow and learn - we cultivate individuality and celebrate success, of all forms.
We offer a choice of well over 100 different activities, clubs and societies ranging from art club, dance club, concert band, debating, drama club, orchestra, fantasy gaming and film club to zoology club, sailing, squash, taekwondo, basketball and equestrian squad.
King’s has a national reputation for its sporting successes in rugby, hockey, cricket, netball, tennis, trampolining, cheer, showjumping and gymnastics, to name but a few. We are also one of the largest Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme centres in the country.
We know that it is skills learnt whilst in a sports team, producing a school musical or teaching in a school in Bolivia that will help our pupils when applying to universities. Characteristics such as determination, commitment, resilience and good communications are actively cultivated.

Our thriving and dynamic House System gives pupils opportunities to work with those in other year groups, helping to build our happy, caring and supportive atmosphere. An exciting range of events, from football matches, poetry competitions through to language competitions, bake-offs and cake decorating competitions, are timetabled throughout the year, enabling pupils to help plan and organise events as well as show off their talents.
Each House has two House Captains, adding to the wide range of positions of leadership available. Each year group has a House Monitor to help co-ordinate events within year groups, offering further opportunities for pupils to take on responsibility. Additionally, each form has a House Rep to work at form level in event organisation.
