Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Conveniently located in the Chamartín area of central Madrid, King’s Infant School offers purpose-built facilities for boys and girls between the ages of 3 and 6 (Nursery to Year 2).

Young children are naturally inquisitive; King's College embraces this to develop it into a love for discovery and learning. The school creates inspirational learning opportunities, encouraging the school's pupils’ first hand exploration and engagement. The quality start which they achieve at King’s Infant School allows pupils to secure a solid foundation from which future learning experiences can be built upon.

Teaching approach of the school

Pupils follow the English National Curriculum and are taught by experienced, caring British qualified staff. In the Foundation Stage ( Nursery and Reception) the children have direct access to their Outside Learning Environment. In Key Stage 1 ( Years 1 and 2) the school embraces the resources of Madrid and has good links with Museums and Parks in the city centre.

At the end of Key stage 1 aged 7, the children transfer to either King’s College Soto de Viñuelas or to King’s College La Moraleja. There is a strong transition programme with both schools and the children adapt quickly into Year 3.
