An academically strong school, King's has a reputation for adding value, with most students characteristically going on to university or college. The School has an outstanding gifted and talented program affording the best features of an academically selective school (enriched teaching and sound scholarship designed to realise academic potential), with the best features of a non-selective school (a balanced education and the capacity to improve a boy's academic standards).
King's is in high demand because it offers academic excellence with character development. For example, a unique four year training course in leadership is undertaken by Kingsmen in the Senior School. Crown Princes, leaders of political parties, authors, actors, leaders in law, medicine and in a wide range of other professions, have all been educated at King's. It is a school committed to the development of good character and those values that are consistent with a caring, Christian community.
King's is a member of the 'Great Public Schools' (GPS) and is one of the leading sports and performing arts schools in the land with many of its students going on to international prominence. A P-12 day and boarding school, King's combines the fine traditions of the past with a modern and contemporary curriculum.
