Highly regarded throughout Warwickshire and the West Midlands, King Henry VIII School has been providing a first class education since its foundation in 1545. Proudly co-educational for over 40 years and boasting a bright, diverse and friendly student body, it is a school where each child is able to find their talents and to flourish. The excellent neighbouring Prep School allows a smooth educational journey from 3 to 18 years of age. Academic results are amongst the best in the region whilst fees are remarkably good value. Children flock to the school locally but the two-minute walk from Coventry train station also attracts many from further afield. With wonderful, supportive teachers, small class sizes and a spacious, leafy campus, the school is a model of the best that independent education can offer.
The history of the city of Coventry and King Henry VIII School have been closely linked since 1545. The bombing of Coventry by the Luftwaffe during the Second World War left gaping holes in the fabric of the city but the school was fortunate to fare a little better. Despite being set ablaze by incendiary bombs during the blitz, fire-fighters, staff and pupils worked through the night to extinguish fires and incredibly school opened for lessons the following day. The school building on Warwick Rd is one of the city’s foremost landmarks, a stone’s throw from War Memorial Park.
