The King's School specialises in creating the leaders of tomorrow. An esteemed boys’ school, King's offers entry from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 with weekly and full-time boarding available from Year 5.

The King’s School proudly offers 360-degree development of students comprising academics, physical excellence, leadership, creative expression, social responsibility, community spirit and personal accountability.

King’s reputation as one of the country’s most respected schools is built on a foundation of trust between our valued staff and families. Working in partnership with parents, The King’s School helps equip young men with the skills, values and motivation to influence and inspire others, and enact positive change in the world. 

The King’s School is a world leader in boys’ education and its acclaimed Pastoral Care Program supports the learning journey. The Pastoral Care Program ensures young boarders experience a smooth transition through strong and accessible support networks. Year 7 students board together in beautiful Gowan Brae house before joining the vertical system with their fellow boarders in Year 8. This system has proven hugely successful at encouraging peer interaction while maintaining meaningful support.

The King’s School is situated on 300 acres of beautiful parkland in the demographic heart of Sydney. The vast grounds enable students to explore and engage in a safe setting designed to inspire.  The School’s impressive facilities include the Centre for Learning and Leadership, the state-of-the-art Science Centre, The King’s Theatre, the Music School and the agriculture paddocks. King’s is mid-way through a multi-million dollar project that is revolutionising its boarding facilities to a world-class standard.  

Founded in 1831, The King’s School is Australia’s oldest independent school. It was established with the aim of delivering the next generation of leaders – a vision that holds firm today.
