Does my child require special coaching for the King’s High School entrance examination?
No. However, we recommend that if your daughter’s school does not practise Verbal Reasoning, you purchase some papers just to accustom your daughter to this particular type of test. You can see sample English and Maths entrance papers on our website and it can be useful to bring these to your daughter’s school’s attention to determine if she will have covered the work on which she will be examined.
How competitive is entry to King’s High School?
We usually receive in excess of 200 applications and we usually have four or five forms of entry, with class sizes of between 20-24.
How many girls come from Warwick Preparatory School?
Approximately a third of the year group comes from WPS. These girls are divided between the forms.
How many schools send their pupils to King’s High School?
In the last three years, we have received pupils from between 40-50 state maintained and independent schools.
Does King’s High School look for a certain type of pupil?
We look for personal attributes to attend our school such as individuality, enthusiasm to contribute to school life and a willingness to grasp all opportunities which will come their way during their time at King's.
How will my daughter be helped to settle in?
Before your daughter starts, she will come to an Induction afternoon with you and an Induction morning with her new classmates. She will have a Form Teacher, a Head of Year 7, a Sixth Form and a Year 8 “Family" to look after her. The Year 7 Bonding Weekend in September will also help her to bond with her peers.
How can I be certain my daughter will Thrive at King’s High School?
Before your daughter commences Year 7 there are a number of specialist events which will ensure she is familiar with the school, and she has met other new girls as well as current Year 7 girls, and teachers. This culminates with the Induction day in June. Once your daughter joins King's High there is a robust pastoral care system in place to ensure each and every girl is nurtured and supported as much as possible. This includes a dedicated Head of Year 7, specialist teachers, as well as the School Family Scheme, which ensures girls in Year 7 are supported and mentored by girls from Year 8 and Sixth Form.
Is there a comprehensive transport system?
Yes. We are very conveniently placed for public bus and rail links and there is a comprehensive Foundation schools’ bus service.
