About Us

The King’s School is an excellent learning environment with an illustrious history.  At King’s we are extremely proud of our friendly and focused academic atmosphere - one that is rich with diversity and opportunities.

It is important that all our pupils enjoy their time at King’s and that their individual interests, talents and needs are recognised and valued.  We want our pupils to leave the school as well-rounded individuals who have the capacity to influence and shape society.

The King’s School is a selective school that admits boys from the age of eleven.  The school educates students from Grantham and beyond, with a significant proportion living within three miles of us, thereby helping to maintain a strong community aspect.

This is a school with a long history, but at the same time we are forward looking.  In fact it could be said that King’s reaches for the future from the basis of solid foundations.  The foundations manifest themselves in the emphasis given to the importance of work, self-discipline, behaviour and achievement.  From that foundation, we are able to help our students face and meet the needs of this rapidly changing world, by seeking to embrace new technologies and recognising the importance of links between education and the world of work.

At King’s we understand that while academic qualifications are important, education must be broader than that alone.  Through the ethos and activities of the school, we strive to have a positive impact upon the students’ spiritual, moral, social, cultural and academic development and values.
