The school is privileged to use Rochester Cathedral as its school chapel and an active chaplaincy works across the school supporting the whole community. Small size forms are placed within the house system and tutors move with the pupils up the year groups, supported by the pastoral deputy head, boarding house mistresses and tutors, school nurses and designated safeguarding leads for holistic care.
Many students accept offers from top universities and arts colleges.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
A community that enables individuals to flourish.
King’s is the second oldest school in the UK and the oldest Cathedral School in the world, offering a traditional British education in the heart of historic Rochester. We are able to provide small class sizes, excellent facilities and an individualised education targeted to the needs of each pupil with many of our teachers specialising in their given field. We are also one of few schools in Kent that offer Computer Science as a subject choice and all three CCF contingents (Army, Navy and RAF). Even once a pupil has moved on to working world or further education they remain connected to King’s through the Old Roffensian alumni society.
