About King's School

King’s School is an ecumenical Christian School in the Diocese of Chichester. The school opened its doors to its first cohort of students in September 2013. There are currently just over 650 students in years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11, and a team of over 60 teachers and support staff. In September 2019 the school moved into its new, purpose built site in Hangleton. This was the culmination of six years of hard work and planning, and marked the beginning of an exciting new stage in the school’s development. Our next milestone will be the opening of our Sixth Form in 2023.

The school received its second Ofsted inspection in December 2018 (Section 8 inspection) and retained its rating of good overall with outstanding features, being recommended for an early full Section 5 inspection due to the progress made against the areas for improvement identified in the last Section 5 inspection in 2015. The inspector noted that “Pupils from a range of backgrounds thrive in this highly successful and inclusive school” and praised the School’s leadership team as being “dedicated, determined and ambitious”. We are keen to continue driving improvement and are seeking to appoint a talented and energetic Deputy Headteacher who will support the school’s development and growth.

Our work and relationships are based upon the four core Christian values of Love, Forgiveness, Respect and Responsibility and through these we encourage and support every student and member of staff to be the best that they can be.
