With small classes, inspiring teachers, a celebrated range of extra-curricular activities and outstanding pastoral care, King's offers a vibrant culture of endeavour and scholarship which has flourished since the school was founded in 1541.
From the Headmaster - Alistair Macnaughton
The King's School, Gloucester is one of the seven famous Cathedral schools established by Henry VIII in 1541. Initially a Choir School, it is now the leading co-educational independent school in the area, with around 500 pupils, aged 3-18 years.
We are proud not only of our students' considerable academic success, but their achievements in music, sport and the expressive arts.
The best way to decide if King's is the right school for your child is to visit us. Please contact us, read what parents and pupils say, or order a prospectus.
Our unique keystones approach identifies and develops individual talent and personal qualities as well as high academic expectations all within the historic setting of Gloucester's Cathedral.
King's is a dynamic and creative place and I hope you will get some sense of who we are and what we do through this website.
