The King's School among top 10 in the region

The King’s School, Worcester has been named in The Sunday Times Parent Power 2022 Schools Guide as one of the Top 10 independent secondary schools in the West Midlands.

King’s is the only Worcester school to be named in the Top 10 and is ranked ninth in the region and equal 153rd in the national table out of 900 independent secondary schools.

The Parent Power 2022 report is the 29th edition of The Sunday Times guide to Britain’s highest-achieving primary and secondary schools in the state and independent sectors.

The school rankings are based on a three-year average of academic outcomes from 2017 to 2019 which have then been used to produce a series of tables to reflect pre-pandemic performance in what would be classed as “normal” times.

Headmaster Gareth Doodes said: “We are delighted to have been recognised in the Sunday Times Top 10 independent secondary schools in the West Midlands.

“It’s a great honour for King’s to be ranked as the leading school in Worcester and Worcestershire.

“This is a true testament to the sheer hard work and dedication of our pupils and staff.”

He added: “I could not be prouder of our school.”

Malvern St James Girls’ School was ranked 10th in the West Midlands list and 168th nationally.
