What the school says...

The Kings School in Macclesfield is not an 'either/or' school - either great academic results or superb extra curricular opportunities its a 'both, and' school. From the ages of 3 to 18 in our Infant & Junior Division, the single sex Boys and Girls divisions and then again in our coeducational sixth form, Kings offers every child both the strongest possible academic education and amazing opportunities outside the classroom.

Our results are outstanding. Add the string of international sportsmen and women Kings regularly produces, the eclectic range of musicians, artists and inventors, the 50 clubs and societies Kings provides for all ages and the fact that our explorers have the opportunity to venture right across the globe - now you dont just have a school, you have the start of an amazing life long journey.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Dr Hyde should be happy, as almost all the pupils do look very smart – indeed we wondered whether one very elegantly turned out sixth former in suit with waistcoat was a member of staff (but were relieved to see at least one boy with a tie veering towards half mast)...
