History

<DIV ALIGN="justify">King’s College is a British curriculum school in Madrid for day pupils and boarders. It was founded in 1969 by Dr Roger Fry CBE.

Numbers rose from 70 pupils in 1969 to nearly 500 in five years. King’s College soon outgrew its premises and by 1976 ten houses of differing size and design were in use in the Chamartín area of Madrid.

After occupying these temporary premises for some nine years, the main school moved in 1978 to its present purpose-built premises in the residential area of Soto de Viñuelas to the north of Madrid. The first section of the building was opened by the British Ambassador to Spain Sir Antony Acland, KCVO, CMG, and dedicated by the Papal Nuncio in Spain and the Anglican Bishop in Europe. Since then many improvements and additions have been made to the building and facilities, including:<blockquote>

  • A residential wing for boarding students opened by the School's Patron the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne
  • A 25m heated swimming pool
  • An Early Learning Centre
  • A brand new Infant School in Chamartín (2004)
  • An auditorium with seating capacity for 400 people
  • A Music School with six rooms for individual tuition
  • King's College School, La Moraleja (2007) opened by HRH Princess Alexandra, The Honourable Lady Ogilvy
