King’s School: Canterbury, Kent, UK

School Gallery


King’s School in Canterbury, Kent is a co-educational boarding school in England. Great facilities and historic location in Canterbury! The curriculum at this top UK boarding School is based upon strong academic roots. It emphasises and relies upon what is best in traditional independent school education: scholarly excellence supported by a caring pastoral and tutorial system, and a wide-ranging co-curricular programme. However, it is continually adapting and reacting to the changing demands of modern education: new subjects are added, new teaching techniques adopted, and there is an increasing awareness of the need to provide programmes of study that match individual needs and skills.

The curriculum of this famous boarding school is divided into three units: the Lower School (Shells, Year 9), an introductory year; the Middle School (Removes and Fifths, Years 10 and 11), working to GCSEs and IGCSEs; and the Sixth Form (6b and 6a, Years 12 and 13), taking AS and A levels. 

Formal and structured educational support, for those who need it, is available at all levels. The well-stocked Library is open 7 days and 6 evenings per week. ICT facilities (including the Internet) are available for all and the whole school (studies within the Houses as well as classrooms) is extensively networked.  

 Pupils are offered extensive careers advice throughout their time at King’s. Almost all go to university, either immediately or following a GAP year.  The most popular university destinations are Bristol, Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, King’s College London, Newcastle, Nottingham, Exeter, University College, London and Oxford.
