Opportunity and success on a global stage

I am delighted to welcome you to the King’s Group Academies (KGA) website.

KGA offers a unique home for schools wishing to join us. Our parent organisation, King’s Group, has nearly 50 years’ experience of delivering outstanding educational opportunities in an increasingly wide range of international contexts. All our international schools offer the English national curriculum and typically teaching staff hold PGCE. BEd or other equivalent qualifications. We look to our Academy heads, however, to help drive improvement within KGA through our Education Board, supported by a group of trustees with a considerable depth of international, business and financial expertise

KGA INSET Day

We are delighted with the success of our inaugural KGA INSET day for staff members, governors and trustees on February 25th .Our day opened with a key note Presentation ‘Evidence Informed Pedagogy ‘ given by Professor Dame Alison Peacock Chief Executive of the Chartered College of Teaching. During the course of the day delegates had the opportunity to attend up to 3 one-hour workshops. We had a broad range of workshops on offer selected by our Headteachers - some were facilitated by our own KGA colleagues sharing their good practice across the MAT together with workshops facilitated by external experts. The day also included interactive whole group sessions exploring our International Dimension together with ‘Building our KGA Winning Team’. We are grateful to Sue at Northern Parade Schools, her staff and Governors for hosting this day.
