King William's College was founded in 1833 and bears the name of Wilhelm IV, King of Great Britain (1765-1837, crowned in 1831). The idea of ​​creating a college appeared in Bishop Berow in 1668, but was implemented only in 1833 by the spiritual leaders of the Diocese of Maine. Up until 1980 only boys were studying in the college, at present the educational system is mixed.

Among the characteristics of the school is its Island location and incredible beauty of the surrounding nature. The Isle of Man is one of the so-called "Crown Holdings" of Britain. It is not part of Britain, but is its dependent territory. The executive branch and foreign policy issues are under the control of Britain, and in the system of legislative and judicial power the island enjoys wide autonomy. The Parliament of the island exists and operates since 979.

All this special situation causes enormous opportunities for the education and development of human potential. Respect for human rights, traditions of parliamentarism and peaceful coexistence are invariably brought up in the pupils of the school. Moreover, the Isle of Man is one of the largest offshore zones in the world. College students have the opportunity to personally follow the business processes of successful companies from around the world.

Currently, there are two departments for children in the college:
