In March 2007, it was announced that Spencer Lewis would be appointed the new headteacher of the school, replacing the previous headmaster, Rabbi James Kennard. According to The Jewish Chronicle, for 2011 non-Jewish students would make up 40% of the school. The school teaches mandatory Jewish Studies lessons to all of its pupils and offers a 2-week trip to Israel for students in Year 9 of the school. There used to be other school trips traditionally taken each year which was Belgium in Year 9. However, there are now no traditional trips to Belgium. There is also a 1-week trip to Poland for Year 12 6th form students. In the middle of 2013 it was announced that Spencer Lewis would be leaving Kantor King Solomon for other opportunities as Headmaster at Yavneh College. Jo Shuter was announced as his replacement.
