About Us

King’s College India, a British Day, Weekly & Full Boarding school believes in the holistic development of children and opens a world full of possibilities with global exposure, personalised learning and passion pathways. The provision of experiential learning and an all-inclusive approach makes King’s different and provides individualised awakenings for children who are looking for more than just structured learning.

British education is known worldwide for its excellence and we are here to extend the 141-year-old legacy of King‘s College Taunton, UK with an evolving British culture and Indian touch. For the first time in India, a leading British private school – King’s College, Taunton, located in cricket-loving Somerset – is offering an identical education to the one received by children in the UK. We emphasize on the core values of integrity, honesty & compassion with an academically excellent education.

The true measure of distinction is in the detail and expertise to address the needs of every child.

We, also, believe in the power of community building and its role in the all round development of a child. Therefore, we emphasize on mutual respect and contributing to society. Our aim is to form an inclusive & safe space where kids grow physically, socially, intellectually and spiritually in a thoughtful abode with an assurance of a strong support system around.

Aims

At King’s College India we aim to provide a high quality education for boys and girls aged 3 to 18 years. We want to inspire in pupils a desire for excellence and a love of learning that goes beyond the formal curriculum giving way to the development of curious minds ready to unleash their full potential. Thus, encouraging a wide spread of interest for all subjects available not only in common subjects but also in other areas of growth such as sports, arts, community service and outdoor activities.
We also strive to maintain a close partnership with parents and work together in guiding and caring for the children of King’s College India. Cooperation among teachers and parents is, most certainly, a one way ticket to educational excellence as well as the ensurement of happiness and fulfillment of all students.
In summary, King’s College India is committed to:
  • Provide an educational program that develops students’ curiosity and creativity.
  • Develop responsible and engaged learners.
  • Foster tolerance, respect and acceptance of others.
  • Provide a curriculum that is rich and relevant and allows all students to succeed.
  • Promote a strong, supportive partnership between home and the school and the wider community.
  • Have high expectations of ourselves and others.

Ethos

King’s College India is guided by one motto, which in just a few crucial words, outlines and represents the core values of our school:

“A kinder you, a kinder world”

This motto is embedded in the ethos of our school and serves as a guiding light for this institution towards excellence. It has been with us since the very beginning and has led us ever since in fostering the virtues of faith, hope and love.
We invite each and every individual regardless of race, gender or creed, with the ultimate goal of nurturing self-respect, self-esteem, high moral values, responsible citizenship and commitment to the service of others.
We wish to create a lively and stimulating learning environment that is exciting in a caring and secure environment for the children which, in turn, serves as preparation for the future of our students not only from a work point of view but character building too.
All in all, King’s College India emphasizes values that allow students to enhance their self-esteem and the ability to value each person’s own worth through a happy, caring, enriching and secure environment. This can only be achieved through high quality teaching which is exactly what our school is committed to.

Values

As mentioned previously, our school’s goal is not only academic oriented but goes beyond that. Our ethos and motto reminds the students as well as staff that no matter how many fantastic grades one gets, what matters at the end of the day is if you are a kind-hearted and good-natured person. With this in mind, our intention is to establish a community built upon the basis of commitment to others, appreciation of human diversity and the spirit of inclusiveness.
Furthermore, we do not wish for students to sit and memorise books but to develop an intellectual curiosity about the world around them and to view everybody and everything surrounding them from a critical point of view.
It is only through a creative and innovative form of teaching, like the one we offer at King’s College India, that students can unleash their full potential and become promising leaders of the future.

Our History

King’s College Taunton was founded in 1880 by the Reverend Nathaniel Woodard, a highly practical and charismatic educational pioneer. His vision was to offer strong academic teaching, relevant to a changing world, coupled with an emphasis on caring for the needs of the child – mind, body and spirit
Taking their legacy forward, King’s College India opened its doors to all students in India in August 2016, seeking to expand upon Woodard’s vision, and create an admixture of the highly revered British curriculum with Indian values. They seek to provide outstanding modern facilities like its Taunton counterpart, giving equal emphasis upon academic, co-curricular as well as extra-curricular activities in a secure and stimulating environment. Along with great educational qualifications, great emphasis is also placed on developing individual kindness, consideration, and courtesy.
Give your child the best advantage in life by selecting King’s College India and play an active role in continuing the 140-year-old legacy of King’s College Taunton in the UK.

Headmaster’s Welcome

There remains little doubt, in the aftermath of the recent and ongoing troubles faced by humanity, that education represents a passport to a better life, greater life-chances, wisdom and a sense of community and servitude. Here at King’s College India, we are only too keenly aware that our children have endured a great deal through the recent pandemic and we must tread carefully in ensuring that the correct steps are taken to protect their futures. In essence, we care.

I am very pleased that you have chosen to consider King’s College India as the place where your child can grow, be nurtured and realize their potential. Alongside the Cambridge Primary, Lower Secondary, IGCSE and A-Level programmes, we ensure a very broad curriculum which allows students to naturally express themselves and grow their confidence in a range of areas. A fundamental principal of the Cambridge programme is self-management; we teach and encourage our children, from a very early age, to manage their time, their responsibilities, research, homework, sports training, relationships, presentation, ethos and general life principles.

To enhance and compliment the holistic growth of our children and young adults, we have first-class facilities inside the academic areas as well as in the surrounding environment. Dedicated laboratories and classrooms, a Drama studio, Music rooms and Art studios ensure that our learners have access to a whole raft of developmental opportunities. We also have
a 25m swimming pool and training pool, as well as dedicated changing areas. Our cricket practice areas, pitch, football field, basketball, tennis and multi-function courts also provide every learner with opportunities for growth outside of the classroom.

Boarders feel as though this is a home from home and play an integral part in the development and growth of their second home. Our dormitories are clean and well-appointed. Boarding students have access to teachers in the evenings and throughout the weekends and an additional programme of enhancement is developed for boarding students only, taking
into account the needs of the boarding community. All of this is set within our amazing campus which is designed to create the safest, calmest and inspiring environment possible.

Our teachers are all holders of a degree as a minimum standard and all have experience with the Cambridge curriculum and teaching methodologies. Teaching staff go beyond what is presented in the syllabus document and use methodologies embedded in metacognition, active learning and multiple intelligence theories to ensure a bespoke curriculum is delivered to each and every learner at the school. In order to further embed our motto, A Kinder You, A Kinder World, we actively participate in service activities designed to help grow and develop the immediate communities around us. This develops a sense of place, community, social
awareness and responsibility in our learners. At King’s College India, our learners are given and grow the skills needed for life.

Finally, as members of the King’s College community, our students will not only grow with the skills needed for later life, but will also be a part of the King’s family – a legacy reaching back over 140 years. KCI enjoys strong links with our sister school, King’s College Taunton and we undertake cultural, academic and sporting exchanges on a regular basis – as well as
with other schools in Europe, Asia and Africa.

So, please pop in and enjoy a chat about our wonderful school. Being part of King’s College India is an amazing opportunity for you to not only invest in your child’s future but for your child to realize her or his potential. I look forward to meeting you and your children soon.

Meet the Deputy Headmaster

It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all to our school website. We, at King’s College India, strongly believe that each child is unique and has hidden talents. It is our first and foremost duty to help them identify their talents and believe in themselves.

No doubt academic excellence is what the present scenario demands but this alone cannot guarantee success and happiness in life. So, besides teaching the time-tested skills of reading, writing, and mathematics, which remain important at all times, there are many other aspects of good education which we impart like critical thinking and problem-solving skills, sports, tech-mastery, communication, presentation, organisation and time management skills.

All students of King’s College have the freedom and the flexibility to be creative, innovative and unique in their own way. We make the learning experience of our students enjoyable, meaningful and relevant to the real world.

With this in mind, the School wants to create caring, creative and responsible young people that would be recognized as global citizens and will contribute towards making this blue planet of ours a better place to live in for ALL.
