Welcome to the King’s High School International Department. At King’s our primary objective is to Build Good Men for Life. We are committed to Personal Excellence, each young man being and doing his best.

Our Point of Difference is that we practise a values-based education awareness.  All students know and are encouraged to embrace the principles of citizenship – respect, responsibility, fairness, integrity, compassion for others

Two of the many strengths of our school are its diversity and its inclusive nature.

There are many opportunities for all students ranging from outdoor education (including skiing and surfing to sports and cultural activities.  Our priority is to provide a wide range of subject choices and a clear pathway to tertiary education.

The school boasts students from many different ethnicities. All students are respected and their differences are not only accepted but celebrated.

Whatever your interests, they will be catered for.
Whatever your strengths, they will be encouraged.
Whatever your goals, they can be realised here.

Join us at King’s for a life changing experience.
