King William's College
was founded in 1668 under the umbrella of Bishop Barrow's Charity
and is the Island's only independent school. It provides a broad
and balanced co-education in the Anglican tradition from age 3
to 18, with the Buchan School providing the preparatory stage
and the King William's College site the senior stage.
Both schools are set
in the finest traditions of the British public schools and follow
the spirit of the National Curriculum but teaching well beyond
it. The mission of the College is to enable pupils to develop
to the full, not only academically but as people.
Through laying firm foundations while at school,
we intend that they will lead richer and more fulfilled lives
and be better able to serve the communities in which they find
themselves as adults.
