Welcome to the Sixth Form. With small class sizes, 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 has grown considerably over the years into the leading co-educational independent school in the area, with around 500 pupils, aged 3-18 years.
The two years our pupils spend in the Sixth Form are vitally important. Their academic achievements will determine their options for higher education and what lies beyond; the many activities and opportunities for leadership and responsibility they receive will broaden their horizons; the friendships they form, both with teachers and with each other, will establish aims and values for a lifetime.
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.
When you visit, we are confident that you will experience the warm and genuine rapport that exists between our staff and pupils and that you will fully appreciate what we can offer our pupils at this crucial stage of their lives.
