Students climbing trees at The King Alfred School

Welcome to
The King Alfred School

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.

“The aim is to allow children to grow chiefly through their own efforts, and more or less at their own temperamental pace, into their own image.”

John Russell, KAS Head 1901-1920

Space to Grow

The village green setting of the main school site contributes to the community feeling with Lower School classrooms all opening out directly onto the play areas, parents encouraged to spend time in the grounds and all students offered opportunities for outdoor learning.

School Update

Due to the Covid-19 virus, and on the advice of the UK Government and the Department of Education, the school buildings are currently closed.

Teaching and Learning are continuing – distance learning has been set up and all students and parents have been notified.

We look forward to welcoming our students back as soon as it is safe to do so.
