They also said there was good Christian leadership in the school which allowed pupils to flourish.Headteacher Chris Richardson said: "I am delighted that Kings has been judged to be an outstanding church school. "The Christian element is an integral part of our daily work and this accolade is a tribute to the efforts of all our students and staff."Inspectors from the Church of England regularly visit Christian schools to inspect religious education.
