Join King’s Group

Becoming a King’s Group school

In 1969 Sir Roger Fry founded the first King’s College school in Madrid, setting the foundation for King’s Group. For the last 50 years we have been building and delivering a transformative learning experience offering the English national curriculum. Upon approval from the Department for Education (DfE), we then established King’s Group Academies in 2014. A ‘multi-academy trust’ (MAT) with a passion for providing opportunities and success on a global scale.

We are experts in education, with a prestigious name across Europe and Central America.
At King’s Group, we understand that every school looks for an opportunity to provide the best education for their students. We are keen to share our values, knowledge and experience with individual or groups of schools and any third party that would like to benefit from a King’s Group style of education and management. Along with teaching the English National Curriculum, we can provide an expertise on educational management and reinvestment on facilities, all whilst benefitting from being part of a wider and extensive group of schools.

Over the years, King’s Group has worked to develop one of the most established school networks around the world with over 650 teaching and 600 support staff across the globe, and educating nearly 8,000 students. We encourage all types of schools, privately owned, charities, academies or any other organisation that may like to have the chance to share a joint vision & mission to “be at the forefront of British education internationally” and to create a unique space for their students to prosper.

Growing each year, King’s Group has strengthened our connections and educational network in order to facilitate new projects such as new schools, academies and training programmes. With this support, the Group uses our enthusiasm and experience to make a positive difference in the wider world.

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
