Throughout the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, we continued to follow Government advice. We kept our hand sanitising stations in place and asked pupils to use them when coming on site and when changing classrooms during the day. We maintained our enhanced cleaning, to ensure that regularly touched surfaces were wiped down during the school day, rather than just after school. We put the pupils and staff in 'bubbles' when the Government instructed us to. Staff tested twice a week; we asked Secondary pupils to test twice a week; and we tested the Secondary pupils at school at the beginning of the terms as advised.
We are pleased that, although we have kept up a lot of the extra cleaning regimes and the hand sanitisers are still available around the school, we can now mix again and enjoy the fun and friendship of the family atmosphere at our school.
However, we continue to ask that parents stay vigilant to the signs/symptoms of COVID-19. Should there be a local outbreak of COVID-19 and we need to provide remote education to our pupils , please read here about our online provision for Secondary and Primary pupils.

Testimonials from our Parents
What a pleasure it was to share in the awards assembly by Zoom this morning. To be within the school community again was a great joy. Thank you for all the brilliant work you and your colleagues continue to do for our children's academic and spiritual growth. Excellent use of technology too!
(Mrs S.V. October 2020)
It has been a privilege and a blessing to have our children in a school where the Lordship of Christ is upheld. To know that all things are covered in prayer is to recognise a rare treasure in today’s society. I would like to say The School is not a hothouse environment where children are brainwashed into belief, thank goodness! Instead, The King’s School offers a safe environment to mature each pupil’s faith and demonstrate it in their daily lives.
The fact that The School is small enough that everyone is known and valued is a rarity. Pupils are seen as individuals worth investing in, rather than exams folders.
The small classes provide the opportunity for close friendships. Small classes mean that the teachers have a very clear perception of each child’s strengths and struggles. A rock-solid management team and a group of dedicated, unified and caring teachers work to provide a good education.
We are so thankful to have had the privilege of calling The King’s School our School.
(Mrs C. Gardener, Year 11 Parent)
Our son has had a very happy and productive life in The King’s Schools. This is owing to the dedication and quality of the teaching staff, plus: good standards of discipline and classes which are neither too big nor too small in number.
We have particularly appreciated the Christian discipline of the pupils, which is not confined to an RE lesson but is a constant value throughout the school day. The family atmosphere of the school also makes it a special place for both the children and their parents.
It has been a privilege for our son to have been part of The King’s school and we will be forever grateful for all the school has done during his formative years.
My 2 daughters have been encouraged in their faith and spiritual development as well as in their studies at The King’s School. I can honestly say that the genuine love and caring, shown by so many of the staff, have helped them come through some very difficult family circumstances which we faced. Both girls have grown into young women with the courage to enter life with a determined faith and positivism, and the School has undoubtedly played a significant role in helping them develop as unique individuals with their own gifts and strengths. The King’s School has helped equip them for life, not just getting through the curriculum!
Teachers at The King's School do so much more than teaching!
Our son seemed to have difficulty concentrating whilst studying and was falling behind in class.
His teacher noticed a slight idiosyncrasy in the way he looked at things - something that we, his parents, hadn't even noticed. She was concerned that he might have a sight problem and recommended that we take him to an optometrist to be on the safe side.
The optometrist confirmed that he had condition which caused difficulty in focusing and therefore concentrating. He prescribed glasses and remedial treatment.
Our son quickly caught up with the rest of his class and is now fine with his studies. This was also a huge relief to us.
We know that without this extra care and special consideration our son could so easily have been wrongly diagnosed with long term implications to his education.
This is just one example of the kind of care that you can expect from teachers at the Kings School.
