Our Location  

King's College, The British School of Madrid is a prestigious day and boarding school located in the leafy suburb of Soto de Viñuelas, nestled between Spain’s capital city of Madrid and the Guadarrama mountains. Connections by road, rail and air are optimal, as the school is just a 30-minute drive from Madrid Barajas Adolfo Suarez International Airport and is also served by a mainline train station in Tres Cantos, ensuring that both local and international campers have full and easy access to the site.  

The location is perfect for students looking to explore Madrid and immerse themselves in this unique Day and Boarding school experience and allows campers to meet and make friends from not only Spain, but all corners of the globe!

For the youngest campers (3 to 5 years old) we have a ratio of 1 monitor for 5 students.

Activity sessions ratio will vary based on the activity in sports groups, but it will always be low.

We provide camps in both English and Spanish.

The language spoken through the camp program will depend on the language selected, which will be either English or Spanish.

We propose that students bring only what is necessary for any snacks or presents they desire to purchase, with an average of 6 euros per day and a maximum of 50 euros per week.

On arrival at the camp, the money must be handed in an unopened envelope labelled with the student's name and the amount. This envelope will be stored and will be administered on a regular basis.

Our team oversees the allocation of rooms based on gender and age, while also considering the campers' well-being.

We listen and make every effort to respect the participant's decision. However, we strive not to accommodate more than one friend per camper because this might have a negative impact on the interaction with other participants.

No. Due to possible allergies, we ask that campers do not bring their own snacks, unless it is for specific dietary requirements, in which case please let the monitors know on arrival.

Yes, after supper, our campers enjoy a free time session to make and receive calls. We provide cell phones at the camp, so campers do not need to bring their own.

However, we do not advise campers to phone home every day because chatting to parents too often can make them homesick. This can have a bad impact not just on your child, but also on the campers around them.

Each day campers should bring the following items in a backpack: filled water bottle, sunscreen, swimsuit, and towel.

It is not recommended that students bring a mobile phone, but if they do, it must be clearly labelled with their name as well as the charger. It must be handed in to the camp management at the time of reception.

The pupil will only be given the phone during free time after dinner.

It is suggested that students do not bring any valuables to camp.  Suppose they do bring valuables, such as iPods, consoles, video games, or other electronic devices. In that case, the management will collect them on the day of arrival to encourage the child's socialization with the rest of their classmates and prevent using these devices from isolating them from the group.

Although students do not take any traditional tests, their daily progress is monitored through verbal presentations and project demonstrations.

Groups will be formed according to level and age (beginners, intermediate and advanced), with oral tests on the first two days of the course. Each student will receive a Student Report at the end of their stay with us.

Yes, students from other schools are welcome to attend our Summer School. We encourage the international sharing of experiences.
