The King's School is a co-educational independent Christian school in Witney, Oxfordshire, England. It that is part of Oxfordshire Community Churches (OCC).[1] The school had 163 pupils at the time of its last Bridge Schools Inspection.[2]

History[edit]

The King’s School was started in 1984 by the OCC group of churches. Initially and for a number of years it used the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) programme, which has been criticised for promoting racial segregation and young earth creationism. It no longer uses that material. The school had several locations between 1984-1989. The school was first based at Merrifield house then it moved to Scout Houses and even spent some time based at the Cotswold Wildlife Park before finding its current home. The Junior School is on New Yatt Road, Witney and work has been completed in 2010 on the new building.

Extracurricular activities[edit]

Among the extracurricular activities at the school are Sports Day and the Expressive Arts Week.

At the end of the Easter term, the senior pupils take time off normal lessons as part of their annual Expressive Arts Week. Students display their work on graphics, P.A. and lighting, drama, music, dance, costume and stage design or creating wonderful refreshments for people to enjoy during the intervals.

To help the students with learning certain languages there are trips to both Germany and France along with the Y11 trip to such countries as Zambia and India.
