Our policy throughout the admissions process is to allocate the appropriate placement for the candidate so that he/she may benefit fully from the education we offer. King’s College is an authorised centre in the “Comunidad de Madrid” and therefore parents who have confirmed a place for their child can apply for the means tested “Beca Guardería” from the “Comunidad de Madrid” for both Pre-Pre-Nursery and Pre-Nursery years. Please see the following link for more information.
The procedure for admission to the school varies according to the age of the candidate:
Pre-Nursery (age 2 to 3)
Pupils entering our Pre-Nursery class are children who have their second birthday before 31st December of the year of entry. Pupils applying for entry to Pre-Nursery are required to come to visit the school with their parents.
Foundation Stage (age 3 to 5)
Pupils applying for entry to the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) are required to come to the first visit with their parents and to bring past school reports (if applicable). Children applying for Nursery and Reception places are not required to have any prior knowledge of English.
