King’s College School is a British school with a superb location in La Moraleja, on a hill overlooking Alcobendas (Madrid), with impressive views of the Guadarrama Mountains.
Its classrooms cater for more than 630 children between the ages of 2 and 16 (Pre-Nursery to Year 11). As a purpose-built school of stunning design, with outdoor areas and well-appointed classrooms, this is an inspiring place to learn. What is immediately apparent is the happy yet purposeful atmosphere of the school.
Whether children are Spanish or international, everyone is made to feel welcome and newcomers make friends here very quickly.
In September 2020 the school inaugurated a new second campus in La Moraleja, just a 5 minute walk from our existing school site.
The new building is a dedicated Infant School, especially for students age 2 (Pre-Nursery) to age 7 (Year 2), offering a space where from a very early age children are encouraged to become independent learners and have fun as they acquire new skills.
Children attending the new Infant school will automatically gain a place at the existing campus where they can continue their education from Year 3 until Year 11 (age 16).

Although I was anxious before I arrived, King’s College turned into a home that I love as much as my real home back in Egypt. I have achieved many things that I couldn’t have achieved had I not studied here.
With the help of the Sixth Form advisory team, who made the process of applying to university far less daunting and helped me take part in many extra-curricular activities around Madrid, the school has enabled me to develop my passion for Politics and to approach this subject, usually studied outside of the school curriculum, from different angles. The opportunities that King’s has provided me with have been determining factors in achieving my dream to study at Cambridge.
