Here at Junior King’s, we celebrate the individual and take great pride in getting to know each and every family that comes through our doors.

You will receive a warm welcome when you come to the school and we very much look forward to having the chance to learn about your child and to help make your admissions journey as smooth as possible.

Pupils can join Junior King’s at any point from the term of their third birthday until Year 8. The majority of pupils join in September but we are flexible in our approach.

Most children who join Junior King’s go on to join the Senior School and for those who join in Year 7 or Year 8, ‘through places’ to the Senior School are often offered.

Our Admissions team is here to help you with any questions as regards the whole process of entry to Junior King’s for your son or daughter. Please contact us by phone or by email to discuss further.
