What the school says...

The Kings School, Grantham is a thriving school, rooted in a rich history but looking to the future with eagerness and preparing students to meet a future characterised by rapid change. The school prides itself on being part of the wider Grantham community.

Students are encouraged to participate fully and to be active in the community for the good of others. We seek success at the highest level in the classroom, on the sports field, through entrepreneurial opportunity and through artistic and dramatic activities. King's School became a fully selective academy on 1 August 2011.

The school traces its history back to 1329 when the first teacher was appointed. In 1528 the school was re-endowed by Bishop Foxe of Winchester who also founded Corpus Christi College, Oxford. Our most famous pupils include Sir Isaac Newton.
