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. You can also order a prospectus here or view it online here.
