Enrichment and Extra-Curricular

An education begins in the classroom, but does not end there.

The pursuit of academic excellence is at the core of what we do. Teaching is about passion, communication and, above all, a love of one's subject. An insight into the young mind also helps. Learning is not just about the induction of knowledge, but about learning how to learn. A good lesson is about imparting enthusiasm and arming children with the tools to teach themselves. And all this is rather crudely but vitally measured by exams and grades.

I loved King William’s College from the start. I made up my mind within an hour of our time there that I wanted my son to attend. You have to come to College to understand what makes it stand out from the rest. It is a place of genuinely caring and friendly people. Another aspect of College we love is its vast international community. Our son has made some great friends and as a result has come to appreciate and respect other cultures and traditions. Our son loves College. He loves the independence to make choices, the easy access he has to his tutors, the opportunity to make his own mistakes and learn from them, but most of all, he loves the fact that expert assistance is always a breath away.
