King’s College School - Spain
King’s College School opened in September 2007 and has become a thriving preparatory school, with a roll of over 500 pupils from Nursery to Year 9 (aged 3 to 14).
The school is closely linked with King’s Infant School (Chamartin) and King’s College (Soto de Viñuelas). A class joins La Moraleja in Year 3 from Chamartin and La Moraleja pupils transfer to Soto de Viñuelas for Yr 10. The majority of pupils are Spanish, although there are a significant number of British and international pupils, with over 30 different nationalities represented.
The school is one-form entry in Early Years and Key Stage 1, and two/three-form entry in Key Stages 2 and 3. The school follows the British National Curriculum, leading to IGCSE courses which begin in Yr 9. The pupils are highly motivated and are very well supported by their parents. This makes teaching and working within Kings College School very fulfilling. Regular professional training takes place both internally and externally. There are many opportunities for career progression and promotion and the excellent reputation that King’s enjoys worldwide, ensures that staff are strong candidates when applying for promotions both within the Uk and Internationally.
