What The Good Schools Guide says..
Diamond structure – co ed infant and junior school, single sex years 7-11, co ed sixth...Praise for teachers from a disconcertingly poised and articulate, very new year 7 boy – 'They're fun and good at what they do'... 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)...
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. ...Read more
