Extra-Curricular

Chapel Choir
The purpose of Chapel Choir is to lead the whole college in Christian worship. Although there is no audition, the Choir performs some of the masterpieces of church music and frequently represents the College in the local community and UK. A very big commitment but members are regularly rewarded by crazy trips to the forest and other outré diversions.

Orchestra

Chamber Groups

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!
