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;
  • To challenge pupils to develop their abilities, encouraging and promoting academic, musical and sporting excellence, as well as giving pupils opportunity to be involved in a variety of extra curricular activities;
  • To establish a firm foundation of skills, knowledge and understanding, upon which, pupils build at senior school.

Our schemes of work are influenced by  the National Curriculum, as well as the requirements of Common Entrance and various senior school entrance and scholarship assessments. While external examination success is an ultimate goal, we believe that this is not the only measure of success and throughout their lives at King’s, children are encouraged to develop a sense of achievement and enjoyment in all spheres of education.
