In addition to its academic programme, King’s College’s range of extra-curricular activities makes it the ideal place for pupils to learn – and to live. The sports facilities on campus (including a swimming pool and riding school), the amenities at the school and the high quality of the teaching, as well as the design of its residence, Tenbury House, make it an ideal place for youngsters to grow and mature.
Tenbury House – like King’s College – is a co-educational establishment, where boys and girls share communal spaces (dining room, common room, cinema room and ICT suite) but are lodged on separate floors (boys on the first floor and girls on the second) in individual or shared bedrooms equipped with en suite bathrooms.
“State-of-the-art facilities and an unmatchable location between the mountains and the city of Madrid make King’s College the perfect setting for students from all over the globe to receive a well-rounded British education - continuously innovating to adapt to the current and future world our youngsters will face.”
In addition to its state-of-the-art facilities, the school’s outstanding location is also key to the boarding experience: King’s College is set in 12 acres of grounds in the countryside between the Guadarrama mountains and Madrid. Boarders therefore enjoy a peaceful, natural setting at a very convenient distance from the heart of the Spanish capital and the city’s international airport.
Such a privileged location allows for a great number of varied weekend events and trips both in the countryside and in Madrid and other cities nearby - from go karting and paintballing to visits to art galleries, concerts and even ballet. However, these activities vary according to our boarders’ needs and likes, and are always evolving to ensure they cater for all tastes and cultures. After all, the main purpose of our extensive social programme is to encourage students to mix with other boarders, develop their social skills and build their self-confidence in a fun, relaxed and safe setting.
Providing an unmatchable environment for young students to thrive in, King’s College has been ranked as one of the best schools in Spain by prestigious publications such as Forbes, and is consistently chosen by parents from all over the world as the best investment they can make towards their children’s future
