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.

Schola Cantorum
College's most advanced choir perform sacred and secular repertoire, often a cappella (without accompaniment). Membership restricted to grade 5 - standard singers and above.

Orchestra
Orchestra welcomes all pupils, staff, parents and governors who play orchestral instruments. Repertoire varies widely and all members are invited to participate in choosing the music we play.

School of Rock
Disciples of Mr Howard meet each week and regularly rock the school with their very, very noisy gigs.

Chamber Groups
Want to play in a small group? We'll form one to suit the instruments available and find a time for you to rehearse with staff help.

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.
