What we do

British International Schools

At King’s Group we are proud that our schools offer a high-quality British education to our pupils across the globe. We educate young learners right through from 18 months to the point where they leave for university education aged 18. All classes are taught by native British & British trained teachers, except of course for those lessons in foreign languages, which are taught by native speakers of those languages.

UK Academies

Following the success of our UK and international independent schools, it was a natural step for King’s Group to fulfil our vision of academic excellence by working in conjunction with the UK Government to sponsor Academies.

King’s Group became an Academy sponsor in 2014 and established King’s Group Academies, a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) recognised by both the Department for Education (DfE) and the Regional Schools Commissioners.

Study Abroad

Since 1981, more than 60,000 young students have entrusted King’s College International with their language learning needs. This arm of the organisation offers an entertaining and effective way for young people to improve language skills while participating in one of our summer camps, academic year programmes or shorter language courses.

Adult Training

Our adult training arm, provides professional development, language training and a multitude of other bespoke training solutions to our customers. With two bases, Madrid and Panama City, the two business units work to provide tailored professional training solutions to two very different markets.

50 Years of Academic Excellence


Founded in 1969 by Sir Roger Fry, the King's Group is recognised nationally and internationally by students, parents, alumni, educators and partners alike, as a supplier of high quality education.

My King's story

“With the help of the Sixth Form advisory team, who made the process of applying to university far less daunting and helped me take part in many extra-curricular activities around Madrid, the school has enabled me to develop my passion for Politics and to approach this subject, usually studied outside of the school curriculum, from different angles. The opportunities that King’s has provided me with have been determining factors in achieving my dream to study at Cambridge.”

Miranda, King's College Alumna

Went on to study at Cambridge University

“In all honesty, I believe that if I hadn’t attended King’s College saint Michaels, I wouldn’t have gotten accepted into Harvard. Everyone here was very supportive throughout the application process. My teachers and tutors have spent many hours with me writing my recommendation letter, filling forms, sending my grades and even speaking to the Harvard admissions office on the phone.”

Abdel, King’s College Alumno

Went on to study Physics under a full scholarship at Harvard University

“I want to thank King’s for giving me tools that now I know are fundamental in life. School life at King’s always felt like home, and they gave me the possibility to be where I am now. The most remarkable values I was taught were ‘honesty, faith and courage’ and King’s made me understand why this was so important”

Nicole, King’s College Alumna

Went on to study at Hanze University (Groningen)

“King’s gave me unparalleled advice - not only when it came to writing my personal statement, but also when it came to practising for my interviews with the dream of studying Vetinary Medicine at the University of Bristol. I will miss the feeling of being part of such a supportive, close-knit community, and being surrounded by so many different cultures”

Rosanna, King’s College Alumna

Went on to study at the University of Bristol

“Studying at King’s gave me the opportunity to choose between subjects and realise Economics is what I really want to major in. Without the dedication of all the outstanding teachers at King’s who always encouraged us to express our thoughts and discuss in class, it would not have been possible for me to sail through the process of applying for university and do so well in my A Levels.”

Marie, King’s College alumna

Went on to study Economics at the University of London
