King's College School, La Moraleja ha sido calificado como "Sobresaliente" in every category by Penta International, a British Schools Overseas inspectorate body accredited by the British Government whose key purpose is to report to the English Department for Education (DfE) on the extent to which schools meet the standards for British Schools Overseas (BSOs). This inspection is a thorough external review by an independent organisation across a multitude of areas both in and around the school, from facilities to teaching and learning, as well as student support.
“King’s College School, La Moraleja is an Outstanding school. Due to an excellent curriculum delivered through high-quality teaching and robust assessment practices, academic standards are very high. The behaviour of pupils is excellent and standards of care for their health and well-being are exemplary. Leadership at all levels is reflective, and securely focused on continuous improvement in all areas”destaca el informe publicado recientemente por Penta International.
King’s College schools are one of the few schools in Spain that regularly undertake these external inspections which come accredited by the Department for Education (DfE) of the British Government. In fact, King’s College schools are the only schools in Madrid that currently hold the “Oustanding” or “Excellent” in every category award, which offer a British curriculum from 16 weeks to 18 years old. (Registration No’s 6099, 6039, 6040) The DfE has a set scheme standard for the inspection of British Schools Overseas whereby schools are analysed against a common set of goals.
El objetivo de la inspección es proporcionar información a los padres, los profesores, los dirigentes y la dirección del centro, sobre la eficacia general del centro, el nivel de educación que ofrece y su compatibilidad con los centros independientes del Reino Unido.
The inspection and subsequent report cover the key areas of quality of the curriculum; quality and standard of teaching and learning; the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils; their welfare, health and safety; the suitability of the proprietor and staff; the school’s premises; and the complaints process and procedures. An essential part of the inspection is considering the extent to which the British character of the school is evident in its ethos, curriculum, teaching, care for pupils and pupils’ achievements.
“We are very proud to work in a school that has had three consecutive Inspections with Outstanding in all areas. We have incredible pupils and extremely enthusiastic, knowledgeable and professional teachers. In our school, pupils are at the heart of everything that we do and that results in a transformative learning experience for all.” said June Donnan, Headteacher of King’s College School in La Moraleja.
