Our proud history
The King’s College’s roots date back to 1986 when it was established by Pastors Gerry and Maureen McCoy. The original location was Sloan’s Cottage, a National Trust building in Leda.
The school then moved location to a building in Medina in 1987, where facilities were shared with Freeway Church. In 1991 TKC moved to its present facilities on Bertram Rd, Wellard. The property the school is on spans twenty six acres, giving ample room for school growth.
Part of TKC’s core identity is its partnership with Freeway Church. It’s original leadership and values come from Freeway Church. The spiritual oversight from Dr Gerry McCoy continues to give inspiration and direction for growth to the TKC Board and School Management.
The King’s College now offers education from Pre-Kindergarten (Age 3) to Yr 12.
The school has grown and extended with first class building facilities being established. Bryan Hall is our newest building, opened in 2011. This contemporary building combines open plan classrooms with flexible learning areas that utilise interactive white boards and data projectors.
Bryan Hall incorporates a library, staffroom, offices, and Specialist Subject classrooms including Music, ICT and Society & Environment. The best part is all student years taking these subjects have their classes in Bryan Hall.
All students and staff, past and present, continue to be a part of The King’s College family.
A walk back through time shows that The King’s College has embraced changing times while still retaining its fundamental Christian values.
