For over 35 years we have challenged our students through a broad range of academic, sporting, social and cultural experiences to become confident and compassionate young people capable of transforming their world.
Our past students proudly recognise that they belong to the School community, and the global Christian family. Our staff go above and beyond to contribute to the greater community in which they live, work and play.
Discover the King’s Vision of Faith through some of our staff, students, and graduate success stories. Explore their individual journeys, passions, friendships, and aspirations for the future.
To find out how your child can become another King’s success story, learn how to apply via our Admissions page.
