Our School was one of the seven famous Cathedral Schools established by Henry VIII in 1541. Now we are a successful co-educational independent day school with around 590 pupils, aged three to eighteen, offering academic excellence, a celebrated range of extra-curricular activities and outstanding pastoral care.
With small classes and inspiring teachers, King's offers a vibrant culture of endeavour and scholarship in the historic setting of Gloucester Cathedral. As a result, our school has a special sense of identity which encourages a moral framework and a powerful feeling of community.
King's aims to stimulate all pupils to the greatest possible academic, creative and extra-curricular achievement by encouraging the exploration of a wide range of cultural, intellectual and sporting activities. We offer a unique approach called 'Keystones' which identifies and develops individual talents and personal qualities.
