Information

As with all our schools, King’s College Panama offers a rich range of activities outside the classroom (depending on what form these take, additional fees may apply). For us, these form a part of developing a sense of independence, as well as opportunities to socialise and just have fun with friends. The options may vary over time, depending on staff availability and expertise, but this is an important part of school life and we will make sure that our activities are held to the same standard as all of our work with your children.

This year our aim is to offer the children a variety of experiences and clubs to address different needs and interests of our student body.  The majority of the clubs will now take place at the end of the day and will run from 3.30- 4.30pm.

A school bus service will be available after the clubs. This will be a limited service and will be different routes to the normal bus service and an additional cost will be charged for this service.
