King's School Gloucester to hold Open Morning this Saturday

The King's School, next to Gloucester Cathedral, is holding an open morning this Saturday.

Between 9.00am and 12.30pm on May 22, prospective families will be able to visit the school and get an insight into education at King's, it's pastoral care and unique programme of co-curricular opportunities to more than 650 pupils, aged three to 18.

In an unprecedented last 12 months, King's said it has demonstrated its commitment to student success; with the school becoming adaptive and flexible in the remote delivery of the full curriculum for all year groups.

King's add that it's excellent 2020 A Level and GCSE results demonstrate a tradition of academic achievement with more than 55 per cent of grades A*/A (9-7).

However, the school said it's ambition for its pupils does not begin and end with exam results, priding itself on developing the well-rounded individual. Music, sport and drama are said to play an important role in school life and our pupils are actively encouraged to participate in the many co-curricular activities on offer.

The countywide bus service and range of scholarships and bursaries are said to make an education at King's accessible for all.

In January 2021, the school opened a re-developed Sixth Form Centre. This facility blends the restoration of features, dating back to C13th, with modern classrooms, a café and social spaces - all designed to inspire pupils and encourage them to think differently about the world.

King's has also recently been shortlisted for a TES Independent School award for their Feeding Communities Sixth Form student initiative.

The best way to find out more about King's is to visit, meet pupils and teachers and discover this unique environment on May 22 (held in accordance with the current COVID-19 guidelines).

King's is asking all visitors to pre-register via the school website, www.thekingsschool.co.uk.
