Founded on a core of strong Christian values, King's School takes pride in instilling a sense of care and respect for others in every child taught there, offering a friendly, family-focused environment for children to learn, grow, and of course, play.
"I believe that education should be a partnership between caring parents and a caring school", says Headteacher, Clare Page. "School and family life should be complementary, working to the same end and helping each child grow into a well-rounded person."
Small class groups enable teachers to give each child the care and attention they deserve. The children are given the space they need to develop their own sense of self, creative and critical thinking and the discipline they’ll need later on in life to become well-rounded adults - all in the comfort and safety of a warm, friendly and structured learning environment.
Our students all receive a personal computing device. iPads are utilised for Reception to Year 2, and laptops are issued for every student from year 3 through to year 6. This allows a perfect blend of traditional teaching and technical skills to excel in the 21st century. This increases their love of learning and creates independence, helping them to claim responsibility for their work and research. It has also proven to be a huge asset to those with learning difficulties such as dyslexia.
The school boasts an impressive plethora of extracurricular activities to develop the children's learning and social skills, from sports such as martial arts and fencing to creative endeavours such as street jazz, guitar and piano lessons.
Southwest is a superb location, from the natural beauty of its beaches to the wilds of the moors, to the historic city of Plymouth. It's a place full of diversity and great resources that help our students build their interest and promote personal growth.
Our 2019 Independant Schools Inspectorate (ISI) report achieved an 'outstanding' rating in all categories, and we were also rated 42nd in The Times Best 70 independent Prep Schools 2021.
Family feel truly is everywhere at King's. From the kitchen to the Head's Office, we treat the children as if they were our own. They come first and are ultimately at the centre of all that we do.
