I am delighted to welcome you to King Henry School, a new co-educational secondary school with a tremendous future ahead. We believe in providing our young people with an extraordinary education; one that unlocks curiosity, ignites ambition and forges a social conscience, enabling our students to have an impact on the world around them.


We are proud to be a truly comprehensive school; a school where all students are valued, supported and inspired. For students to thrive, we need to ensure that every student and staff member is invested in our community, that everyone is included and respected. As such we place inclusivity at the heart of our decision-making.

As a parent to three children myself, I know that I would want a school that goes beyond ordinary expectations, a school that is ambitious about social mobility, passionate about inclusivity and a school believes that every child matters. That’s the environment that I would want my children to grow and develop within, and that’s what we hope to create at King Henry School.

In order to cultivate this culture of ‘being extraordinary’, we rely on our extraordinary staff. I want our staff to receive exceptional training, to be experts in their fields and to have the opportunity to develop their careers in a supportive and dynamic school.

Our students and staff both benefit from being part of the Odyssey Trust for Education, a ground-breaking partnership in which we work alongside colleagues from Townley Grammar, learning from each other, and enhancing the opportunities that our young people receive.

King Henry School is on an exciting journey – we will become a truly extraordinary school; a school that students are proud to call their own. I encourage you to join us by sending your son/daughter here, or by joining our staff team, or by supporting our community work in the local area. Together, we will have an impact on the world around us.
