Established in 1946, King’s House School offers each child a high-quality, broad academic and co-curricular education

We foster a lifelong love of learning in a caring and supportive environment, where children feel secure and able to flourish. Pupils have the opportunity to take part and develop in all areas of school life, so that the needs of each individual are truly catered for: from Year 1 boys benefit from the first-class facilities at our 35-acre Sports Ground in Chiswick. King’s House is independent of any senior school, and proud of the wide range of day and boarding schools that our boys go on to at 13, with many achieving scholarships.

We just wanted to say how incredibly grateful we are to you and all the staff for creating such a wonderful and safe learning environment for our daughter and her peers … we are truly thankful and in awe of the staff and their commitment, resilience, bravery and above all, dedication to the little ones.

Nursery Parent

We still often talk about how friendly, passionate and professional you and your staff at Kings House Nursery are!  I really feel lucky she could have her early education with you!

Previous parent, went on to Kensington Prep

Thank you both SO much for all you have done to nurture our daughter. The kindness and reassurance you have consistently shown us will not be forgotten.

Previous parent, went on to Holy Cross

It is a warm and friendly nursery with staff who genuinely have an interest in your children and making sure your child has a positive first experience with school. I am confident that the mix of structured and imaginative learning will prepare my child for the next step. 

Current Nursery Parent

Visit the school, and see for yourself. The school has a great feeling when you first visit, and the senior boys are so polite and positive. It’s a great school for boys that works hard to develop the boys in all areas. 

Current Parent

Excellent school that prepares boys well for senior schools. Delivers outstanding results despite not being hyper selective and suits a range of personalities. Strong sport. Pastoral care and engagement with parents is spot on.

Current Parent

I have the highest regard for the school and have been extremely pleased with it. I would recommend it to anyone.  

Current Parent

It is an amazing school which my son is looking forward to going to every morning and even sad at the weekend that he can’t go to school. For a 5 year old, that shows a lot. 

Current Parent

KHS has a friendly and warm environment in which the boys grow academically and mentally. It has a strong sporting mentality.  Great school! They really know how to look after the boys properly! 

Current Parent

They understand boys, and how to educate boys. They seem to be able to get it right for each individual child. Staff are passionate about their subjects and this is infectious as boys learn with enthusiasm. A wonderful school and a brilliant start to a life-long education. Cannot recommend more highly.
