Kantor King Solomon (KKS) is a voluntary-aided school on the East London/Essex border. It was established in 1993, and today caters for around 1000 pupils, including a thriving Sixth Form. The school has 180 places on offer for Year 7.
KKS is co-educational with boys and girls taught in the same classes. It is an unashamedly Orthodox school, committed to the Jewish values of learning, community and charity. The school welcomes students of all faiths and of none and is a beacon of multiculturalism, reflecting the dynamic make-up of the local area.
The full range of national curriculum subjects are covered in addition to providing a range of Jewish educational programmes, with all students taking Jewish Studies and learning Ivrit as a modern foreign language. The school proudly boasts an outstanding Haderech programme and a full and varied Informal Jewish Education programme.
Ofsted judged the school to be Good in May 2016, noting that the school places “….pupils’ welfare before anything else.” They noted that pupils respect one another and collaborate well in lessons, that the atmosphere in the school is calm and orderly, and that teachers “…engage and inspire pupils.”
