Our King’s Links programme is centred on university trips for our girls in Years 10–Lower Sixth to meet with our most recent Old Girls at their current universities. They take girls around their own colleges and campuses, and give them the low-down on university life – from the application process, to accommodation, workload, and social life.
Recent university trips include: Bristol, Cambridge, Manchester and Oxford.
'If anyone doubts that girls’ schools are the catalyst for gradual but determined social revolution, they should come to King’s High. At the heart of a relatively conservative area is this dynamic powerhouse for social change, unleashing on the quiet byways of Warwickshire the full force of
young women who know what they want the world to look like and how to go about getting it there. There's a careful and not sensational development of confidence and leadership, a respect for serious academic thought and analysis that is not showy or judged by solely A*s.' The Good Schools Guide 2018
