Principal's Welcome


There are very few things more important to you as a parent than your child's education. It plays a pivotal role in shaping who your child becomes and how they live their life. We thank you for considering King's Baptist Grammar School for your child's education.

We invite you to visit the school and have a chat with myself, staff or other parents. We want you to learn as much as you can about the school so you can make this decision an informed one.

We believe a child's education is a joint effort between parents, school and the greater community. We welcome a relationship with every parent who trusts their child's education to King's.  Our vision is to be an R-13 Christian School, providing excellence in education and creating a Christian community where students experience the love of God and have opportunity to respond to Him.  As part of our culture, we also encourage students from non-church attending families to attend King's.  Our fee structure is geared to be cost comparable to the geographic area and financial capacity of parents.       

We strive to provide a vibrant and safe learning environment where students gain the confidence in themselves to meet life's challenges, build lasting relationships and gain a clear understanding of who they are in Christ.
