Academic • Junior King's School, Canterbury


Learning to learn happily.

From learning via play at Nursery, and laying foundations at Pre-Prep, to readying for education proper at Prep School; Junior King’s offers a wide, balanced curriculum and a plethora of co-curricular activities to grow young minds.

With first-class facilities, individual subject teachers, and an approach tailored to each child, pupils get the opportunity to discover and then fully explore a subject. Which means even before they reach Prep School they are well prepared; with a good sense of what motivates them.

We then group them into three distinct year groups to better assess progress: Junior House (Years 3 & 4), Middle School (Years 5 & 6) and Upper School (Years 7 & 8). Year 7 and 8 provides an opportunity for pupils to develop and improve key learning skills, along with their self-belief, maturity, and confidence. All in readiness for ‘big’ school.

“The school celebrates every child’s talents regardless of what they are good at and not just traditional stuff like sport or music. Plus it is great for allowing children to mature and grow in confidence before hitting the Senior School stage.”
