King's School to hold Virtual Open Morning this Saturday
By Matt Hall | 2nd March 2021
At this time of year, the King's School in Gloucester would normally be inviting prospective families to visit the school and discover more about its inspiring environment and unique ethos.
However, given the current restrictions, the school is unable to welcome visitors in person, so instead will be holding a "Virtual Open Morning" this Saturday (March 6).
Prospective families will have the opportunity to take a virtual tour of the school, listen to presentations by the headmaster David Morton, head of Junior School Anne Haas and head of Little King's Sarah Beard and watch interviews with pupils and existing parents.
King's is the leading independent day school in the area, with 630 pupils, girls and boys, aged three to 18.
The countywide bus service and range of scholarships and bursaries make it very 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.
Despite school buildings currently being closed, pupils' learning continues, and the school is working hard to continue to deliver a remote education for pupils, to maintain the keyworker school and to assist the local community in these challenging times.
One parent said: "In my opinion, King's hasn't missed a beat. In the most trying of times my children and I have been supported, nurtured and educated. The teachers have graciously taken on everything that has been thrown at them and risen to the challenge".
