The King's CE School is a fully inclusive and truly comprehensive school. Slightly smaller than average in size, located in Tettenhall, The King's is developing as a beacon of excellence in the city of Wolverhampton and the diocese of Lichfield.

The school recently had a Section 5 inspection from Ofsted in November 2022. The report judged provision at The King’s to be ‘Good’ in all six inspection areas and recognised that there is a well-planned curriculum which is broad and ambitious for all pupils, including those with SEND, and that pupils learn well, concentrating in lessons and taking pride in their work. The report states that ‘staff go the extra mile to help pupils’.

At The King’s, staff wellbeing and development is a priority. We have our own King’s Professional Development “KPD” programme with the hope that we learn something new every day to make tomorrow a better day. We offer a broad range of internal and external training to enable all staff to develop their practice and leadership and to enable them to fulfil their own career ambitions.

In addition to Ofsted, in May 2022, The King’s was officially judged to be an Excellent Church of England school following a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection. It evaluated how effective the school’s distinctive Christian vision is in enabling pupils and adults to flourish. The school received an overall grade of Excellent, with both the impact of collective worship and the effectiveness of religious education (RE) judged to be Excellent.

We believe in setting high standards for everyone connected to the school through our motto of ‘Aspire, Believe and Achieve Together’. All pupils at The King’s benefit greatly from our excellent resources and facilities and the excellent relationships that exist between all members of the school community is what make our school an exceptional place in which to learn.

Our school values of 'empathy, respect, responsibility and forgiveness' underpin everything we do here at The King’s, and we would welcome anyone that wishes to visit us and experience our school first hand.

The King's is in the process of joining the Three Spires Trust. This will further strengthen the ways in which we work with other schools in the city and diocese.
