About King William's College

As the only independent school in the Isle of Man, we provide parents with choice and we seek to offer an education that is distinctive and of the highest quality. We are a small school and this encourages a strong sense of community and allows individuals to flourish.

"I will never forget the school that was well worth travelling 5,000 miles for."

Academic excellence lies at the heart of College. A highly qualified and enthusiastic staff, combined with small set sizes (average class size of 15), ensures that all pupils are inspired and given the individual support they need to achieve success.

"Being a student at KWC has taught me so many things – from the charm of finding gradients of graphs to the importance of finding what you are truly passionate about."

Our aim is to enable pupils to develop a love of learning, fulfil their academic potential and become confident, responsible young people who will serve with creativity, insight and tolerance in the international communities in which they find themselves as adults.

"The friendships I have made at College will last a lifetime and, in years to come, I will look back on memories I have with fondness."

Our objectives are to provide; a broad and balanced curriculum, rooted firmly in teaching of the highest quality; a wide range of enriching extracurricular activities and opportunities for pupils to develop an understanding of different cultures

Students come to King William's College from all over the world and we regularly have over 20 nationalities in the School. We are proud of our internationalism and the overseas students are fully integrated within the School community. Our alumni network is truly global.


In the Fourth Form and Lower Fifth (Years 7 to 9) we broadly follow the requirements of the National Curriculum, except we encourage all pupils to study two modern languages and from the Lower Fifth, the Sciences are taught as three separate subjects.

Progress is monitored through regular assessments and internal exams are held twice a year. Most pupils go on to take 10 subjects at IGCSE and in addition to the core subjects there is a wide range of options. This provides a strong foundation for the Sixth Form and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Exam results are consistently high and far above the national average. Over 95% of our students proceed to higher education each year, both in the UK and abroad, and students regularly gain places at the very best universities.

"A combination of wonderful people, helpful staff, unforgettable atmosphere and amazing opportunities, make this School a very special place to be educated."





Knowledge is vital, but so too are confidence, communication and character. It is important to learn how to lead, how to contribute and how to build. Whether it is a concert, a play, a debate, a trek or a match, what matters is participation and a willingness to try something new.

"Getting involved in the house events, such as House Drama, Music and Sport, as well as School shows – Guys and Dolls and The Jungle Book – have been so enjoyable, enabling me to appreciate other aspects of school life."

There is a vast array of opportunity at College to try new challenges, two of the most popular are the Combined Cadet Force and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, but there is something for everyone.
