Founded in 1969 by Sir Roger Fry, King’s Group now runs six British schools across two countries teaching over 4500 children.

Led by CEO Elena Benito, King’s operates five schools in Spain, consisting of three schools in Madrid, one in Alicante and one in Murcia, as well as a school in Panama.  The latest additions to the Group are King’s College, Latvia and King’s Infant School, Elche which are both due to open their doors in September 2017.

King’s Group has spent nearly fifty years delivering the English National Curriculum to children, many of whom do not speak English as their first language.  Students can start in our schools abroad as early as 18 months old and soon become fluent speakers of English, as well as their mother tongue.

All teachers in King’s Group schools have been trained in the UK and all lessons are taught in English.  The students follow traditional IGCSE and A level courses.

All of the schools in the group are regularly inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) which is, in turn, monitored by Ofsted.

King’s College Madrid, was a founding member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS), which is a well respected educational group at the forefront of British education internationally.


“King’s Group has a long and distinguished history of educational leadership. British schools from as far away as Asia and Latin America look to King’s for inspiration and admire our expertise in all areas of education. Leadership is one of our real strengths. Our vision and mission are not ‘beautiful dreams’ but a very significant and positive reality that we can all build upon.”

Sir Roger Fry, Founder and Chairman of King’s Group.
