The King's School Ely is an independent private school of mixed education, founded in 1541. Today, about 950 people study here, and its popularity is growing every year. The main religious tradition of The King's School is Anglicanism, but it is not imposed: students of any religion can enroll.

The school is located in the town of Ely - a quiet, calm, safe and picturesque area in the heart of Cambridgeshire. You can get to London in about an hour and a half, to Cambridge - in 15 minutes by train. Or - a historically valuable, ancient city, which dates back to the 7th century. At the same time, it includes all the necessary modern urban infrastructure: shops, cafes, markets and entertainment venues.

Here, students from all over the world are offered a variety of balanced studying programs that meet modern standards of quality and educational needs:

  • Kindergarten
  • Preparatory classes
  • Middle classes
  • High school
  • International studying center for GCSE

In addition, the King's School Ely is deservedly proud of its sports sections, providing strong and professional studying for children in various sports, as well as a rich creative and extracurricular program, giving everyone the opportunity to show their talents and abilities.
Among the graduates of the educational institution there are many well-known and famous people, professionals and respected specialists in politics, sports, art and science:

  • Olympic gold medalist Goldie Sayers
  • Lord Brown of Madingley (John Browne), Executive Director of British Petroleum
  • King of England Edward the Confessor.

This is one of the seven schools founded by Henry VIII in 1541 - just when they began to dissolve the monasteries and transfer their possessions to the ownership of schools. The monastery in Ely was founded in 673 by Saint Etelreda. The school was called "The School of Latin Grammar at the Church of Ely" until 1720, and in 1970, joint training was introduced. In 1973 the institution was visited by Queen Elizabeth II. The buildings of the school are considered to be the oldest residential buildings in Europe.
