British School in Madrid: classes taught in English, delivered the British way
Our educational programme at King's College is based on the English National Curriculum and offers an excellent British education to children from Pre-Nursery to University Entrance. At King's College, our focus is on developing attentive and knowledgeable young people, and we know from experience that a successful school depends on recruiting teachers with the skills and experience to turn the curriculum into dynamic lessons that will ignite your child's imagination. This is how we strive to deliver real knowledge and understanding to your child and develop the core skills that will serve them well in the future.
British School in Madrid: experienced and passionate British teachers
All learning at our British schools is based upon a child centred, exploratory learning approach, which will teach your child how to question, reflect and explore new ideas. It is not simply a list of memorised facts, but real knowledge and understanding. Of course, we cannot promise you that your child will go to one of the world's top universities, no one can. We believe, however, that we can give your son or daughter the best possible opportunity to reach their full potential, as a thoughtful, conscientious young person.
