“Our Vision is to be at the forefront of British Education Internationally” Our mission is to provide high quality British education that delivers a transformative learning experience to all our pupils. Engaging and effective teaching based on our core values and the best, most up-to-date UK educational practice enables children at our schools to achieve their academic ambitions and lifetime careers. At the same time we nurture their individual talents and emphasise the importance of educating the whole child with attention to their physical, emotional and social development. We are determined to make a positive difference to the future of our pupils and their families, the careers of our staff, as well as contributing to the wider community.
Sir Roger Fry

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 company vision and mission are not “beautiful dreams” but a very significant and positive reality that we can all build upon.

Every organisation needs a clear and easily understood statement of what it wants to achieve and how it intends to achieve it. As a result of several weeks of consultation, a very exciting and productive strategy conference in Ávila and a lot of hard-work polishing and perfecting the final statements, we now have both a vision and a mission that can help everyone across the organisation work with purpose and understanding towards a common goal.
