Ethos, Mission & Aims

The King's High Learning Wheel


We place great emphasis on a broad and inclusive education, in a nurturing and supportive environment, whilst striving for excellence in all that we do.

In celebrating each student for the unique qualities she brings to our community, we encourage her to explore and develop her interests, gain confidence in herself and in her abilities, and seize the rich opportunities life offers.

We seek to prepare all our pupils for a life of learning and fulfilment, and for the fast-changing world of the 21st century as responsible, active, and compassionate global citizens.

Throughout their lives, we encourage our students to ‘Aspire, Achieve, Enjoy’.
