Boarders' Testimonials

I've loved my time at College, especially in the sixth form. My greatest memories come from school events such as the Epiphany dinner, and living in the girls boarding house. The best thing about school is the feeling of support and camaraderie, which is plentiful in School House. I will miss many things when I leave, but most of all I will miss the sense of community. Nadia Theaker

My time at KWC was fun, I made really close friends who have become a bit like my family. Attending Epiphany dinners and 6th form ball are also fun memories. Taking part in the Jungle book production. The boarding house is like a second home where everybody is nice to each other. Fayo Idowu

Being a student at King William's College 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. The chapel service we had by the sea last year was one of the most beautiful memories I will always come back to. Only once I had appreciated the sense of community, I could understood the importance of being individual and following my own path.  Lucy Ovanesyan

When I decided to change schools, not only did I want an IB school, but I wanted an environment that pushed students to fulfill their entire potential. I wanted a place where material was taught because it was interesting and useful, not just because it would get more marks. I wanted to be challenged, not to fulfill the diploma requirements but because it would make me grow as a person. At King William's College I got what I wanted and more.

From historical banter to hilarious discussions in music lessons to magic tricks in maths, I have many great memories from KWC. In addition, the boarding house has become a tight knitted and supportive community full of movie nights and pancake outings. Not only have I have made many friendships that will last me a lifetime, but I will keep in touch with the many teachers possessing astounding dedication to making their subject come alive. I take with me the confidence that I am prepared for whatever awaits me at Stanford University this September, and I will never forget the school that was well worth travelling 5000 miles for.

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!
