What the school says...

The Kings School in Macclesfield offers great academic results and superb extra curricular opportunities. From the ages of 3 to 18, Kings offers every child both the strongest possible academic education and amazing opportunities outside the classroom. Our unique curriculum is designed to develop independent learners, inquisitive minds and well-rounded individuals with the skills and attributes to succeed long after they leave school.

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.

Make no mistake, this move is huge; not just because King’s is uprooting to a brand new location with all the whizz bang pop of everything ‘state of the art’ there is to be had but because the school will be leaving behind its current diamond structure, operating out of two sites (where boys and girls are educated separately at senior school until sixth form) to embrace...
