UK Academies

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.

Our MAT has a vision and passion for providing opportunities and success on a global stage and pupils at our academies benefit, not only from King’s Group’s well-established knowledge in the educational field, but also from our distinctive global approach, which expands pupils’ horizons and allows them to connect with over 8,000 students and specialised teachers from all over the world.

We are passionate about education and the opportunities it provides to children regardless of their backgrounds. We expect all our academies to work towards becoming “outstanding” schools and can draw-on a wide range of National Leaders of Education and experienced headteachers to support them in that journey.

From our first school, Lyndhurst Junior School in Portsmouth, we have expanded to operate to date a total of seven Academies in the UK, covering Hampshire, Sussex & Berkshire.

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
