King James´s School sits at the heart of the Knaresborough community and the students, in their distinctive tartan ties and kilts, play a central part in the life of the town. Almost everyone in Knaresborough has some sort of link to the school, whether as a pupil (past or present), through family, friends, or the numerous activities that draw school and community together.
As a school, we take great pride in our position in the local community and are always keen to forge new links with individuals and businesses in Knaresborough and the immediate area.
The school celebrated its 400th anniversary in 2016 and we held many outstanding events including concerts, exhibitions, a special enrichment week for students and a gala dinner attended by almost 200 members of our newly formed alumni association. This landmark year in the school´s long history strengthened our ties with the whole school community, both past and present, and generated happy memories for all those involved.
