Come and see King’s Ely
 “King’s Ely’s reputation certainly precedes itself, but you don’t really get a true feeling for the depth of those recommendations until you experience the school’s community for yourself. Within the first week of our sons joining King’s Ely Acremont Pre-Prep and King’s Ely Junior, we simply could not believe the change in both the boys’ happiness and their commitment to learning." These are the words of Mr and Mrs Golding, whose sons, Benjamin and Edward, joined King’s Ely in September 2020.
Afinalist in the Independent Schools of the Year Awards, King’s Ely is a leading independent co- educational day and
boarding school built on a fascinating history stretching back over 1,000 years, making us one of the oldest schools in the world.
We serve the academic and pastoral needs of around 1,000 boys and girls from the age of 2 through to 18, with boarders from 7 years old. King’s Ely is nestled in the picturesque cathedral city of Ely, which is just 15 minutes from Cambridge and 1 hour from London, with direct rail links to both. Wherever you go around our 75-acre campus, you will be greeted with a smile. Our privately-run school buses stop at key locations around Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk.
The adventure of a King’s Ely education enables pupils of all ages to flourish, from the children in King’s Ely Acremont Nursery to the young men and women in our Sixth Form. Whether a student shines in a classroom, in a laboratory, on a stage, on a pitch or on a mountainside, our school promises an abundance of opportunity for personal development, both academically and socially.
King’s Ely students are renowned for their energy, their courage and their integrity. Our pupils achieve excellent GCSE and A Level results and each year, King’s Ely students secure a place at their
first-choice university or institution. However, our school is about much more than exam results and league tables. As reported in the Good Schools Guide, King’s Ely “turns out well rounded, likeable individuals who attain academically but who also realise there is more to life than just results.”
King’s Ely is a family – a community that is vibrant, nurturing and inclusive. We are a school that can take each child on a seamless journey, travelling from one
section to the next, whilst welcoming newcomers at key transition stages, giving support and adapting the offering to the needs of every child in our care.
Only by visiting King’s Ely can you feel the energy and warmth of our community.
We have Open Events taking place in September and October.
Book your family’s place by calling our Admissions Team on (01353) 660707 or visiting www.kingsely.org
