King's is UK's 13th Top Independent Girls' Sporting School

We are absolutely delighted to be ranked the 13th Best Independent Girls' Sporting School in the UK by School Sport magazine.   

It is a wonderful tribute to all our sportswomen, and King’s High and Warwick Preparatory Sports Department. School Sport rank all schools each year, according to performance.  Reaching the top 30 puts a school in the top 1-3% of UK schools.  More weighting is given to success in a range of sports, and those sports with more schools competing. Schools usually have to reach the later stages of at least two, three or four national competitions to make the list, which covers 18 different sports and over 120 different competitions.
