"Thank you so much for the meeting and all your efforts to make sure we had a great stay. KWC is a fantastic venue and proved ideal for our purpose. The boys all enjoyed a fabulous time on site and at the nearby beach and the football went well too! The choice of food and the venue was great (I'm sure you've heard Hogwarts before sorry!). 

The courtesy of everyone we met and the experience was first class and a memorable first tour for the boys. Thank you once more and thank you Isle of Man."

Faced with the difficult choice of our daughters remaining at a perfectly good state school in the Isle of Man, we chose to send them to King William’s College to study the International Baccalaureate. The outcome in both cases was a resounding endorsement of our decision, since King William’s College operates and delivers at a different level.
