At Kings' Schools, the aim is to work together to make every child the best version of themselves.

Our extensive, high-quality facilities and learning spaces are used creatively and flexibly to maximise learning potential and to challenge children in new ways. We believe learning should be engaging, yet challenging so we can ensure all children get the best possible results in absolutely the right way.
Our bespoke, three dimensional curriculum, whilst rooted in the English National Curriculum, is planned every year by our creative and innovative teachers to ensure the most exciting and adventurous learning journey for all our children. Real-life contexts, exploration and investigation are key strands to developing children’s critical thinking skills, whilst allowing children to develop their leadership skills and take responsibility for their own learning at Kings’.
Kings’ Schools are emotionally intelligent schools which have a supportive and collegiate ethos. We celebrate and share success so that every visitor to our school can share in the pride we have for all our achievements. Our vision and mission captures this to ensure we provide ‘the best by every child’.

Our New Schools
Kings' School Al Barsha and Kings' School Nad Al Sheba
Starting up a new school, whether a student, a parent, a teacher or a school leader, is more than just exciting, it includes a feeling of making something new, something that has not previously existed. A new school is quite different from an established school. It takes a certain kind of teacher to make it work: one who is prepared to take great initiative, responsibility and leadership. Kings' is a single brand; it is the same culture, whichever of the three schools your child attends. The staff across the three schools share the same mission and vision, and a whole school strategy ensures good communication across the sites, with regular meetings at all levels. Only on the sports field might you see the harmony break down, as each competes to be the top Kings’ school!
