The co-curricular refers to everything that is on offer outside the academic curriculum. Our co-curricular programme fully supports our overall aims of providing children with an active and creative education as well helping them to become well-rounded individuals.

Education takes place anywhere and everywhere, at all times of the day and co-curricular activities are therefore a fundamental part of a pupil’s path to success at King’s. There will be many activities for our pupils to choose from, including: sports, music, drama art, debating, chess competitions, community service, and many after school clubs covering a wide range of interests.

These activities both complement and enhance the development of the enquiring and creative mind. Academic excellence combined with creative activity and individual expression makes the School a thriving and highly motivated community.
