Our son has been at King William’s College for two years and has settled in very well with the full support of the boarding staff and teachers, who have demonstrated great kindness and caring. The highly disciplined, but dynamic education system has helped our 15 year old son to adapt well and his confidence has noticeably improved in a short space of time. What's especially pleasing is that not only does the College have an excellent calibre of teaching staff and a strong academic curriculum, but we have been surprised and delighted to discover their excellent music achievements! With such great experience, our second son will also join KWC starting at Lower 5, to have a well rounded education. We cannot be more pleased with our decision to send our sons here all the way from Hong Kong!M5 Overseas Parent
A big thank you to Georgia Harvey, twice winner of the Manx Lit Fest Poetry Slam, who came to KWC this week to give workshops and judge the Junior and Intermediate Reading and Reciting competitions.
What a wonderful week of music making it has been and last night's House Music competition demonstrated just how talented our young people are.
