King William’s College is a unique school in a very special environment. The Isle of Man is beautiful, healthy and safe. This College is vibrant, friendly and fun. We work hard and play hard. Whether you are from the Island or from far afield you will bond with this special place.
We have a strong pastoral support network running throughout the school. Each student is assigned to a tutor group of approximately 10-15 and the tutor is the first port of call for any academic or pastoral issues.
The boarding community represents around 30% of the College population. This vibrant, friendly and creative community adds so much to the College as a whole.
An education begins in the classroom, but does not end there. Learning is not just about the induction of knowledge, but about learning how to learn.
School trips can make a major contribution to the acquisition of knowledge and development of skills. Studies of the natural and man-made world, the present and past, Science and Arts, Language and Music can all be enhanced outside the classroom.
Every pupil in King William's College is assigned to one of three houses, Colbourne, Dickson and Walters. These houses are co-educational and serve for purposes of competition.
The Dr Scholl Library is a fine facility central to the intellectual, academic and cultural life of the pupils.
Our own beautifully decorated Chapel is the spiritual heart of the school.

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!M5 Overseas Parent
