Welcome to the enrolment process at King's
We are delighted that you are interested in us. We are also interested in you because the magic of King's does not rest in its grounds or facilities, it rests in its staff and students. King's staff members are carefully selected because of their energy, skill and ability to create a sense of wonder in a boy. This means, that despite being a non-selective boys' school, our academic results are outstanding.
It all starts in our Preparatory School, our Junior School. King's accepts boys from four years of age and upwards. The Prep is a ‘boy heaven’ where fun and exploration combine with serious scholarship to prepare a boy for secondary school. Year 7 is the first year of secondary school and a major point of entry. Because of the King's reputation, there are characteristically more applying for a place at King's than there are places available. But don't give up! All applications are considered on their merit.
The reason for there being a steady flow of applicants wanting to come to King's rests on three things:
- King's is a school of high standards. It is expected in the professionalism of our staff, in the values we promote and in the facilities we enjoy. We offer a quality education and the best start possible for a boy.
- King's prepares its students for life. A Kingsman emerges having been extended academically, physically, socially and spiritually. The latter is important to us, because King's is an Anglican school that seeks to enhance Christian understanding and give its students a good moral compass.
- King's not only enjoys the integrity of being Australia's oldest school, it has a reputation for being one of the most innovative and creative schools. King's is a genuine leader in educational thinking and gifts its students with the best of the old and the best of the new.
It is my hope that the result of your enquiry results in the enrolment of another boy who is proud to wear the King's uniform.
