Junior King’s is a leading day and boarding preparatory school for around 400 girls and boys from 3 to 13+. Set in over eighty acres of countryside just two miles from the city centre, pupils enjoy a happy and purposeful atmosphere where boarding is central to school life. The majority of pupils progress to King’s Canterbury at 13+, one of the country’s leading public schools.
Junior King's has an outstanding reputation for academic achievement and scholarship. This is supported by excellent teaching and opportunities to excel in a wide range of team and individual sports, music, drama and extracurricular activities. Canterbury is an historic location - a perfect blend of a Cathedral city, picturesque coast and rolling Kent countryside. It is within an hour from central London via the frequent High Speed 1 rail link from St Pancras International or a 90 minute drive by car on the A2/M2. The latest ISI Inspection stated that ‘pupils are consistently encouraged to make the most of their intellectual, physical and creative talents. It develops young people who are courteous and respectful of the opinions of others, within a caring and Christian community. They are appreciative of what the school does for them and they take great pride in their school.’
