About the Foundation

Warwick Schools Foundation consists of Warwick Preparatory School, King’s High School, Warwick Junior School, Warwick Senior School and The Kingsley School. The schools are individual but benefit from the strength and support of the Foundation. This enables our schools to be best resourced to provide an exemplary environment in which to educate our pupils for the future. We aim to develop responsible, resilient, and compassionate individuals, equipped to succeed and bring about positive change in an evolving world.

Our schools are located on two sites.

The 55-acre Warwick Campus in Warwick is home to some 2,600 pupils:

Warwick School comprises Warwick Junior School (boys 7-11) and the senior school (boys 11-18), operating as a through-school.

Warwick Preparatory School and the King’s High School operate as a through-school from ages 3-18. Warwick Prep comprises a co-educational Nursery and Pre-Prep ages 3-7, and, with King's High, is then single-sex girls from 7-18.

This is a unique model of education in the Midlands, offering ‘the best of both worlds’ for our pupils; teaching specifically tailored to their needs with extensive learning opportunities to collaborate outside the classroom.

The town of Royal Leamington Spa is home to The Kingsley School

Founded in 1884, Kingsley is a school community of some 300 girls (3-18) and boys (3-11).
