Exam results

What universities say

"Kings students stand out by virtue of their generally above-average degree results and their willingness and ability to immerse themselves in the life of our student community...I can assuredly put these successes down in large part to the sound preparation for university life that Kings students receive."

What parents say

"The environment here has been amazing, and the relationships my son has made.

I think Kings has been a great bridge for university because he has come of the school environment into a college and made a great bunch of international friends."

Extracurricular life

To be accepted by the best universities you'll need more than just good grades.

Following A-level reforms, higher education institutions use a "basket of measures" to assess applications.
This means you need to show a broad range of relevant interests and experience.

Our extracurricular programme is designed just for this.
