What the school says...

Established in 1545, King Henry VIII School is a leading co-educational day school. The school is proud to take pupils through from 3 to 18 years of age in a friendly, purposeful atmosphere. Excellent academic results are matched by a wide range of co-curricular opportunities and outstanding pastoral care. The school boasts a fine tradition in rugby, having seen many pupils going on to play for England. Current strengths include Outdoor Education opportunity, with a vast number of pupils completing the Duke of Edinburgh Awards amongst many other challenges. The newest facilities are the beautiful Swimming Pool and Fitness Suite which also allow the school to serve the local community. We offer a range of examinations, including IGCSE and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), in addition to GCSE and A level. ...Read more

What the parents say...

The school achieves fantastic results through enthusiastic and supportive teachers and an atmosphere which promotes learning. Teachers differentiate between pupils' needs and give appropriate support. My dyslexic daughter gained 9 A* GCSEs and her siblings are also challenged in their different passions of academia, music, robotics and sport through the wide range of extra curricula activities. Pupils are generally supportive of one another creating a warm atmosphere.

The students attending this school achieve exceptionally high academic standards . The pastoral care given to my children has been excellent . The pupils are given a wide range of opportunities in all areas which help them to develop into well rounded , confident individuals. Some of the opportunities given to my children include extensive travel, performing in high quality drama productions, writing for the school magazine , taking part in music ensembles and representing the school in sporting fixtures. Many pupils compete at county and nationals levels. Parents are encouraged to be fully involved in their child's education and are kept fully informed. I highly recommend King Henry Viii School.
