King’s College School, Wimbledon, also known as KCS, King’s and KCS Wimbledon, is an independent school for boys in Wimbledon, London. Featuring an impressive list of notable alumni, including esteemed mathematicians, architects, surgeons, judges and an aviation pioneer, KCS occupies a vast variety of cutting-edge facilities, some of which have been formally recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects. [1]


Dedicated to providing a progressive education since its conception, KCS offers a broad curriculum and a wealth of enrichment activities. Boys get to choose from a number of sporting, artistic and academic opportunities beyond the classroom, complementing the challenging and stimulating in-class learning the school is known for.


To support pupils pastorally, KCS provides an extensive programme of activities which incorporates PSHE lessons, delivered on weekly basis to facilitate pupils’ understanding of various social phenomena. Staff actively collaborates with parents, jointly addressing matters of concern to each child’s academic and personal development, including his progress or eventual setbacks. [2]


King’s pupils perform exceptionally well in public examinations and typically access further education at some of the best universities in the UK and beyond. Furthermore, they approach adulthood as courteous and open-hearted individuals, who perceive the world around them through knowledge-based perspectives yet are unafraid to step outside their comfort zones and reframe their lives.
