The Good Schools Guide, Talk Education, & Muddy Stilettos

“There’s a dynamic energy and a firm emphasis on the future here.”


Junior King’s

The Good Schools Guide

“Best suited to bright children with a ‘have a go’ ethos, this traditional prep school brings out strengths, both academic and creative, so that by the time they leave they’re ready for the fast-paced senior school.”


Talk Education

“Junior King’s provides an authentic full-boarding experience alongside masses of weekend activities, a good mix of international boarders and a broadly academic, pastoral and creative atmosphere.”


Muddy Stilettos

“Parents looking for a supportive and nurturing environment where kids could pretty much explore and excel in anything that they wanted to do as the range of activities on offer is endless. Plus they have the facilities and staff to help your child hone their academic skills as well and prep them for the next step into King’s School, Canterbury if that was right path for them.”

Senior School

The Good Schools Guide

“Thriving academic school in exquisite surroundings steeped in history, with highly motivated pupils who are hungry to learn and where there’s very little room for slack and never a dull moment – rarely, in fact, even a moment to stand still, such is the busy programme of engaging activities.”


Talk Education

“A school that welcomes everyone and celebrates everyone’s achievements be they academic, musical, arty, sporty or dramatic, King’s has a fantastically inclusive atmosphere. Working hard and reaching your goals is baked into the ethos here, and with its splendid city centre location (the cathedral doubles up as the school chapel), there’s the air of a university about it – something that no doubt inspires the pupils who seem to soar in everything they do.”


von Bülow Education

“To all intents and purposes, The King’s School Canterbury is a classic all-rounder boarding school with excellent academic results, a large well-integrated full-boarding community, great pastoral care and a huge extracurricular offer.”
