King’s High wins Sunday Times award

The Warwick school has been named as the newspaper's West Midlands Independent Secondary School of the Year 2019

King’s High, Warwick has been named The Sunday Times’ West Midlands Independent Secondary School of the Year 2019.

Headmaster, Richard Nicholson, said: “I am absolutely delighted for our girls, staff and parents. This is a tremendous accolade, recognising both the girls’ achievements, and the all-round experience we offer.”

King’s was ranked nationally 21st among Independent Girls’ Schools, 49th of all Independent Schools for A-Levels, and 31st for GCSEs. Girls divide 50-50 between going on to study STEM and arts subjects at university.

The nomination comes at a significant moment in the school’s 139-year history. Next September 2019, it moves to its new King’s High school alongside Warwick School, creating what has been called “the best of both worlds – single-sex education for girls and boys, in a shared social environment”.
