Welcome to Samuel King's School! Situated in Alston in Cumbria and serving Alston Moor and Weardale. At roughly 300m above sea level, we believe we are the highest 11-16 school in England. Top that!
Good progress is being made, with exemplary examples, in giving the school renewed strategic direction and intention …in discussion with pupils one in KS3 stated that now the school is ‘ten times better than it was before’. Likewise KS4 students were in agreement that all things are getting better.
I will really miss Sam King’s. I am looking forward to moving on because the School has given me everything I need to go on to be a success.
There are a number of strengths, notably students’ behaviour and safety. Students say they feel safe in this small and welcoming school; they are polite, friendly and caring, with positive attitudes to learning.
