I am dedicated to ensuring that King’s College, the British School of Panama, provides a safe, stimulating and challenging learning environment where children can flourish both socially and academically.
I have worked in international schools for the last 14 years, first in Malaysia, then Italy and more recently as Headteacher at the King’s College Infant School in Madrid. I understand how much children gain from going to school with peers from all around the word.
At King´s College our aim is ensure that every child reaches their full potential in all aspects of their education. Values such as compassion, respect and friendliness are an integral part of the school’s ethos. Clear boundaries and simple rules will help make King’s College, the British School of Panama, a happy and safe place to learn. We expect our children to work hard, but also to enjoy themselves.
Like our schools in Europe, King´s College, Panama follows the National Curriculum of England and Wales. Classes are taught by qualified and experienced teachers from the UK. Although we have started as a primary school we will grow and will soon also have a secondary department. In four years’ time the first group of pupils will be taking their IGCSE exams and, after that, their A Levels. We expect that once they have finished at King’s College, the British School of Panama, they will go on to universities in the USA, UK and in other parts of the world.
Communication between school and parents is key to ensuring the continued development of each child. Parents are always welcome to discuss all aspects of the school with their teachers and me.
I look forward to meeting you and your children, I am sure they will love coming to school here.
