King’s is one of the seven famous Cathedral Schools established by Henry VIII in 1541. Today we are a thriving, forward-thinking, independent day school with over 740 pupils. We welcome boys and girls, aged 3 to 18, offering academic excellence and a celebrated range of co-curricular activities, underpinned by outstanding pastoral care.

Headmaster Mr David Morton

With small class sizes and inspiring teachers, King's offers a vibrant culture of endeavour and scholarship in a stunning historic setting adjacent to Gloucester Cathedral. As a result, our school has a special sense of identity which encourages strong moral values and a powerful feeling of community.

King's aims to stimulate all pupils to the greatest possible academic, creative and co-curricular achievement by encouraging the exploration of a wide range of cultural, intellectual and sporting activities.

The unique features of King’s, which visitors identify time and again, are the inclusive community, the warmth of welcome and the level of individual care for our pupils.

Mr Morton is a Trustee of the Choir Schools Association and Chair of the West Division.  He is also a Governor of an HMC day/boarding school in the West Midlands.

We hope our website gives you a feel for the very special education on offer at King's. We would be delighted to welcome you to our school for a visit. For more information please contact our Admissions Office on 01452 337337 or email [email protected].
