King's School Tynemouth


King's School in Tynemouth was originally founded in Jarrow in 1860 but moved to its present site in 1860. It is a private co-educational school with over 800 pupils aged between 4 and 18. The school was originally called Tynemouth School and did not become known as The King's School until the 1960s. The school's name refers to three kings, Oswin, Osred and Malcolm III who were buried at nearby Tynemouth Priory.
