The King's School

The King’s School in 1937 by art master Lewis Fairbank

The School is mainly based in the Precincts of Canterbury Cathedral and at St Augustine’s. It also uses nearby buildings in the city.

The history of the buildings in the Precincts is fully described in Margaret Sparks, Canterbury Cathedral Precincts: A Historical Survey. An interesting earlier account is in William Gostling’s A Walk in and about the City of Canterbury, first published in 1774.
