King’s High, Warwick

Since opening our doors in 1879, King’s High has been at the forefront of girls’ education. We are proud to put each girl’s aspirations and wellbeing at the heart of all we do.

Our aim is for every girl to ‘aspire, achieve, enjoy’, and we are thrilled that now, in our world-class, state-of-the-art school, opened in September 2019, our girls have facilities which match their skills and ambition.

Our extraordinary new home is the centrepiece for ‘Project One Campus’, the ambitious programme benefitting all pupils in the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation and marks what we believe to be one of the largest investments in girls’ education that the UK has seen in decades. And to be recently shortlisted in the RIBA West Midlands Awards is testament to our determination to create inspirational spaces for our students, who deserve nothing less.

Our extensive, stunning facilities have been carefully created to maximise the school experience for every girl, and every room is flooded with natural light; in working and playing in these spaces, there is a palpable sense of joy.

Our motto, Spiritus Reget (Spirit Shall Reign), encompasses the character of King’s girls. In celebrating each girl for the unique qualities she brings to our community, we encourage her to explore and develop her interests, gain confidence in herself and in her abilities, and seize the rich opportunities life offers.

We strive for excellence in all we do, and endeavour to prepare our girls for a life of learning and fulfilment, to be responsible, compassionate, and able to make a difference in the world. And, above all, enjoy the journey.

At King’s, we place great emphasis on a broad and inclusive education; one which embraces diversity and opportunities for all, in a nurturing and supportive environment.

Being part of the Warwick Independent School Foundation, alongside Warwick Preparatory School, and Warwick School, provides unparalleled opportunities and not just the ‘best of both worlds’, but rather, the ‘best of all worlds.’

All scholarships can be enhanced with a bursary of up to 100%, if applicants meet the financial criteria of the bursary and if the funds are available.
