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.
King William’s College is situated in the Isle of Man, providing excellent teaching and friendly boarding, in a beautiful and safe environment.The Isle of Man
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.U5 Overseas Parent
