The end of Year 8, and the Years 9, 10 and 11 that follow, are crucial in the life of The King’s Academy students as they strive to develop their characters, to understand the world around them better so that they can make good decisions, to seek answers to the big question of life, of course to achieve their very best results in a range of subjects and qualifications.
