King's College School

Coeducational Independent Prep school in Cambridge


About King's

We are a leading independent prep school with 420 boys and girls aged 4 - 13. We are large enough to provide a full range of options and facilities, but small enough to give a 'family feel' where the teachers can get to know all of the children. The school enjoys an excellent academic reputation, with a pleasing number of leavers winning scholarships to senior schools in various disciplines.


  • To provide a broad, balanced and well rounded education for pupils at KCS.
  • To challenge pupils to fulfil their abilities and encourage and promote academic, musical and sporting excellence as well as giving pupils opportunity to be involved in a variety of extra curricular activities.
  • To build a firm foundation providing the skills upon which pupils go forward to their senior schools.

Our curriculum embraces the Common Entrance and Independent Schools Scholarship syllabuses, as well as meeting the requirements laid down in the National Curriculum. Standards of literacy and numeracy are high at King’s. While external examination success is the final goal, it would be a narrow view to see examinations as the only measure of success and throughout their lives at King’s children are encouraged to develop a sense of achievement, enjoyment and attainment of potential in all subjects.
