The King of Kings School was founded on the 22nd September 1986 by Dr and Mrs Lewis and several parents from various churches who caught the vision for a Christian school. The Lewis family came to Manchester with a prophecy to ‘start a school’.
They had happy experiences of ACE (Accelerated Christian Education) and thought it would make an excellent starting place. They planned to replace this with a British curriculum. For some time the Lower School and Junior School used a part ACE and part National Curriculum, while the Senior School used a British curriculum alone, progressing to GCSE. We were delighted with our results. At GCSE students performed extremely well and gained places at leading independent schools for 6th form.
We were increasingly unhappy with the National Curriculum itself – not just the material, but the philosophy it was unwittingly imparting to the students, especially at GCSE. At this point the NCSC (now ICCE) was set up by Christian Education Europe. (CEE, our curriculum provider. Visit them at www.christian.education). We began taking one student right the way through to 18. She far surpassed the success of our previous students, gaining recognition from the university (verbally and through scholarships and the highest placing in the year). All this was achieved while strengthening her Christian commitment.
So the King of Kings School direction was set and we intended to provide a specifically Christian curriculum. We were now available for parents who wanted Christian education for their children aged 3 to 18. We have an amazing curriculum which is God-centred from the day they walk in the door, to the end. We have a superlative certificate, ICCE, which UKNaric reported in 2012 is comparable to Cambridge International A Levels and O Levels. We also have a history of delivering great education with great results and wonderful students who have been graduating and living lives that glorify God.
“King of Kings School prepared me for success, both at university and in business. More importantly, it strengthened my heart for a lifestyle of serving the Lord Himself.” – John, former student.
King of Kings School is an independent Christian school, preparing students to be leaders.
Jesus is at the centre of everything we do. Our Christian curriculum makes us stand out.
We are non-denominational and accept children from various backgrounds from all around Manchester.
