About The King's Junior School

Happy and secure children will achieve success, something we firmly believe at King's. It starts with our Kindergarten children and carries through the Junior School years. Class sizes seldom exceed 16 pupils so each child receives individual attention from inspirational teachers and our team of teaching assistants. Our high standards of achievement in the core academic subjects are supplemented with the high value we place on Music, Sport, Dance, Drama and Art.

We ensure school is fun and stimulating, and learning and participating is celebrated. Our family-orientated, community atmosphere provides the perfect environment for each child to develop their true potential and make a successful progression to secondary school.

You are welcome to visit us and witness yourselves the many aspects that make King's Junior School such a special place to learn, develop and thrive.
