International Dimension

Opportunity & Success on a Global Stage

Our vision is to create a global community of pupils and staff; broadening horizons, fostering understanding and raising aspirations by connecting our Academies with other schools across the world.

Enabling international collaboration within education not only adds breadth to the curriculum, it builds cultural understanding, improves communication skills and promotes knowledge and awareness of the wider world that may be otherwise unattainable. It exposes students to the world of global work, including careers they may never have imagined.

Through our International Dimension, we offer Honorary Overseas Membership of King’s Group Academies for schools outside the UK who are interested in partnering on collaborative projects for both students and staff. Each academy has a dedicated International Coordinator who works closely with our International Director to evaluate their school and implement work to promote global connectivity.


What this means for students:

  • Long-running peer-to-peer, classroom-to-classroom relationships that will grow and evolve as the pupils move through the school;
  • Collaboration across cultures and countries through concerts, virtual field trips, art exhibitions and passion projects;
  • Gap Year opportunities for 6th Form Leavers.
  • A real understanding of, and connection to, the wider world;
  • English Language Development Support;
  • Language Exchange;
  • Student Exchanges.


Opportunities for staff:

  • To expand teaching and learning beyond the classroom;
  • To collaborate with, and learning from, fellow educators across the globe;
  • Access to extended professional development opportunities via partner schools;
  • Short-term working exchanges in partner schools overseas;
  • To lead and support on overseas student trips.
