The King's School Grantham

Isaac Newton's School

    Head Master's Welcome

    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 a diversity and opportunities. It is important that all our pupils enjoy their time at King's and that their individual interests 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 has a long-standing academic tradition of excellence. Many of our pupils achieve top grades and advance to top universities. In this tradition it is essential that we continue to inspire intellectual development, provide a culturally rich environment to learn and impart a strong sense of community spirit. We want all our pupils to enjoy learning and leave King's with the skills and qualities to fulfil their life-goals and dreams, and have successful futures.  
     
    We believe in and encourage a competitive spirit, social responsibility and a desire to lead. We also value commitment, celebrate success, and provide an education environment which not only leads to academic success but to self-discovery and a strong sense of personal worth. We take the wellbeing of our pupils seriously and therefore we are committed to enhancing both the physical and mental health of all the children. We have a successful proactive pastoral care system and offer an extensive array of extra-curricular opportunities that are vital in helping to challenge our pupils. For example within music, individual and team sport, the Combined Cadet Force, the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, drama, foreign and local trips and many other activities. 
     
    The King’s School is committed to developing generations of young men who leave school as fully-rounded individuals. Hopefully our website provides you with a clear and strong indication of the extent of the opportunities and achievements on offer to the boys who attend our wonderful school. Although a school visit may enhance this even further. Therefore if you are considering The King’s School we would like to warmly welcome you to one of our open evenings, where you can meet our fantastic and dedicated staff, which I am proud to lead.
