Sixth Form

Tuesday 17 Nov 2020: we have made the difficult decision to ask all post-16 students to self-isolate (having taken PHE advice) due to a small number of confirmed cases in the last 24 hours. Students will return to school on Monday 30 November, having strictly self-isolated, unless individuals require further self-isolation.

Students should follow a normal schedule of online Teams work which will be provided by staff, including live lessons wherever possible. Year 13 students’ annual exams have been rescheduled for the fortnight starting on Monday 30 November.

Welcome to The King’s Academy

The King’s opened as an 11-19 school of 1,200 students in September 2003. Since our opening, we have enjoyed great achievements and success as a result of an incredible amount of hard work and commitment from our students and staff, along with much valued support from parents and carers at home.

Perhaps the Academy’s greatest pleasure, however, is to see the inclusive environment in which its students operate, with some 100 students having Statements of Special Educational Need. Inspired by our Christian ethos, which values everyone as equal in the sight of God, we seek to provide a supportive environment where every individual is given the opportunity to discover their particular gifts and talents so that they can excel and achieve their unique potential.  


Valuing excellence of character as well as academic achievements, qualities of diligence, determination, compassion and humility are celebrated so that our young people are equipped to both achieve to the very best of their abilities, and to become inspiring leaders and valuable citizens in society.

Together with our committed and excellent staff team, I am delighted to welcome you to this website introduction of what The King’s is all about.
