King Henry School was founded in the 1890s. It has existed in its current form since 1967, after the merger of Northumberland Heath Secondary Modern School and Erith Grammar School.

Our Vision 

We believe that every student should have the opportunity to be extraordinary through developing academic, physical and emotional confidence. This means having the courage to take risks and learn from their mistakes.  Success in education, as in sport, is the result of successive small failures followed by ever increasing challenges. As we tell our students;  “Everything worth achieving is outside your comfort zone.”

Ofsted report

“Pupils have opportunities to improve their school. Pupils in the student voice group know that senior leaders will listen to them and make changes. Pupils make good progress in English as a result of consistently strong teaching. The effectiveness of the 16 to 19 study programmes is good."

“School leaders have developed a strong and effective vision for the sixth form, which ensures that students are successful, enjoy and value their learning opportunities, and develop into responsible, caring, well-rounded individuals. The school offers a range of academic and vocational courses, and designs bespoke study programmes for all students which are flexible enough to meet their needs.”
