Junior King’s is a school steeped in history, yet the teaching methodology is advanced, innovative and modern. The Junior School was founded in 1879 as the preparatory school to The King’s School, Canterbury. In 1929 the School expanded to the stunning eighty acre countryside location at Milner Court, Sturry. The 16th Century Manor House and Tithe Barn are augmented by superb educational, boarding, extra-curricular and sporting facilities. The Nursery, Pre-Prep and Prep departments provide a very happy, caring and nurturing environment for the pupils.
Accepting boys and girls from 3-13 years of age, Junior King’s provides the very best academic and pastoral care to prepare pupils before they move on to King’s and other leading senior schools at Year 9.
