“SOME of the most important decisions facing us when we returned to the UK after many years spent on international assignments were around finding the best education opportunities for our children.
“We were introduced to King’s Ely through personal recommendations from friends and people we trust. Our son, Will, joined King’s Ely Junior in 2010 and from his very first day, he found the environment welcoming, inclusive, supportive and academically inspiring. That feeling has stayed with Will to this day, as he continues through the Senior section of the school.
“The combination of the school’s House system, personal tutors and the ‘buddy’ support structure provide an environment which enables new starters to integrate and navigate their way through their first weeks and months at King’s Ely with confidence.
“The focus at King’s Ely is on personal development, both academically and socially, so that each student can become the best they can possibly be. We see this in our son every day; high academic and personal expectations balanced with opportunities for sports, arts, drama, extra-curricular and social events – all delivered by dedicated and talented teachers.
“In addition, King’s Ely encourages students to participate in programmes like the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and the school’s unique Ely Scheme, which is designed to enhance personal confidence and teamwork through outdoor activities and challenges.
“The school communicates with parents effectively and there are plenty of parent led initiatives for those who want to get more involved. King’s Ely has a thousand years of history behind it, but has a clear, ambitious vision for the future.
“We have no hesitation in recommending King’s Ely to any other parents who are looking to provide the best all round education for their children.”
