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
