Headteacher’s Welcome


Welcome to the Kings’ School website. I hope that you will find it interesting and that it will provide you with useful information about the school.

Kings’ is an oversubscribed, happy and successful 11-16 Community School with around 1650 pupils, serving the city of Winchester and the surrounding area. It has been judged as “Outstanding” by OFSTED on 4 consecutive occasions.

We take great pride in the very high standards achieved by our pupils – they leave us as happy, well-qualified, confident and well-motivated young citizens and we are delighted that so many go on to excel in local sixth-forms and at colleges and universities.

As a school, we are motivated by a sense of the moral seriousness of what schools do; by a conviction that education, while important, should also be fun; by a belief that schools should be inclusive communities in which everyone is equally valued; and by a determination that each one of us will become the very best person that we can be.

It is a tremendous privilege to be the headteacher of any school and I am delighted and proud in equal measure to have been entrusted with the responsibility of leading Kings’.  I hope that you will agree that it is a fantastic place for young people to learn and develop and that, having looked at our website, you will want to visit us and see it for yourself.
