Welcome to The King Alfred School
Robert Lobatto, Head
At the heart of King Alfred’s philosophy is our child centred approach. This has been the practice here since 1898 when the school opened, and remains equally true today. We appreciate that every child is unique and has their own set of strengths, attributes and areas to develop. We are genuinely committed to understanding each individual, and providing the environment and support so that they can thrive at school and beyond. This underpins our approach to learning inside and outside the classroom, to pastoral care and personal development, and the way we structure the school and the curriculum.
