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”.
