Who we are
King’s Group is an international education organisation. We own and operate an international network of British schools and complement this with services providing children’s Academic Year Abroad programmes and Summer Courses, Adult Training and Catering Services.
Our school network is one of the most established in the world and currently covers the UK, Europe and Latin America. With 50 years’ experience, King’s Group has over 1,250 employees across the globe, educating nearly 8,000 students at any one time.
King’s Group is ambitious, not just for ourselves but for the children and individuals that we educate and the families and clients that depend on our expertise.
We have spent the last 50 years offering the very best British education to children at our schools, young people on our summer camps & academic year abroad programmes, as well as adults who work with our Training divisions. Similarly, the quality seal of “Excellence” is also extended to our services division (Nexalia) who ensure that our catering provision matches the quality embedded in all the other aforementioned areas of our organisation.
As a result, we are experts at the delivery of a quality British education in an international context and the provision of quality catering services.

Corporate Social Responsibility
As a multinational organisation we seek to have a positive effect on every social environment with which we come in contact. Our greatest contribution is through engaging in activities such as School Fairs and Fundraisers, in which we raise funds that allow us to provide support to various charities and good causes. At King’s Group we go above and beyond our statutory responsibilities and are keen to engage in activities to further social good, beyond the interests of the company and our legal requirements.
As a Group we truly believe that we have a corporate social responsibility (CSR) towards the communities in which we operate. We fulfil this commitment through cooperation and collaboration in educational and social programmes. CSR also ties in with the King’s Group vision, mission and values that underpin our role in society. We support the local and wider communities as well as focusing on learning and development, not just of our pupils but also our staff.
Charities we work with
As a Group, we are involved in many annual events which present our commitment to contributing to CSR. We work closely with many charities across the world.
Fundación Juegaterapia, provides resources to hospitalised children with long-term illnesses.
APAMA, a Parents’ association for disabled children in Alcobendas, Madrid.
Fundación Hispano Británica, a cultural foundation, with non-profit making status, registered at the Ministry of Culture of Spain. The aim of the British Hispanic Foundation is to promote relations between the Spanish and British peoples leading to closer ties between the two countries.

The Rastrillo started as a flea market and later added bars, restaurants and flamenco taverns, the proceeds of which, during a week in November, go to Nuevo Futuro. King’s Group have been heavily involved in supporting the Rastrillo initiative.

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.”

“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.”

“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.”
