Head Master's Welcome

Welcome to King's High School, established in 1879 and educating girls from the ages of 11 to 18.

I am delighted to welcome you to the King's High website and hope that you will be inspired by the glimpse it gives of our exciting and vibrant community. As an academically selective school for girls, we are rightly proud of our excellent educational provision, which extends from the outstanding academic and extracurricular programmes to the expert pastoral care we offer.

Whilst our girls are united in being bright, inquisitive and purposeful, we delight in the unique qualities each brings to our school.

Here at King's, every girl is celebrated for who she is, can explore and develop her interests, and gain confidence in herself and her abilities. She can also be assured that the whole school community is focused on realising her ambitions and dreams, whatever they may be.  This makes for a truly exciting educational journey.  Indeed, a glance at the destinations of our leavers pays testament to the girls' richly diverse interests and expertise.

One of the school's key aims is to prepare our girls for the fast-changing world of the 21st century. Through our engagement with the local and wider community, we instil in them a deep understanding of their roles as active and responsible global citizens: King's girls want to make a difference, and know how to do so.

Alongside Warwick Prep and with Warwick School, we are also proud to be part of the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation. Our excellent links provide unparalleled opportunities for all our pupils, with our relocation to the Myton Road campus from September 2019 opening the door to yet further collaboration. Please visit the ‘Project One Campus’ website to find out more about this unique development. 

When a girl joins King's, we enter into a very special partnership with her family; we know that it is by working together that we can make the most of each girl's potential.  I therefore hope that you will want to find out more about joining the King's High family and I look forward to welcoming you to the school so that you can see at first hand what an exceptional place this is.
