 ICT Equipment 

Every classroom is equipped with state-of-the-art interactive whiteboards and wi-fi internet connection.  This is supplemented across the school by 3 trolleys of age-appropriate laptops, that pupils can use in all subjects.

King’s College School, La Moraleja has a dedicated ICT suite where pupils can work individually and ICT classes are timetabled in this room, once a week, from year 5.

Further ICT workstations are available in the Library, where pupils can study during their own time. Senior students are encouraged to view computers as tools for learning in all subject areas.

 

Sports 

Physical education forms an integral part of the curriculum at the school and is also a major area of extracurricular activity. At King’s College School we aim to provide a safe and enjoyable environment where pupils can develop technically, tactically, physically and socially.

It is considered a healthy way to develop pupils’ physical competence and confidence. It also promotes physical skillfulness, physical development and knowledge of the body in action.

Physical education provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. It promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles.

More opportunities for sport become available as pupils progress through the school, and there is a wide range of extra-curricular and optional classes available to students. Sports activities are also available to all students at break times.

 

Art 

Creative Development focuses on stimulating children’s imagination and their ability to communicate and express ideas and feelings in a creative way. The school has a dedicated Art Room, that allows pupils to participate in activities using a variety of techniques and media to create their work.

Younger children are encouraged to be creative, no matter how messy and noisy it gets. They learn about colour and shapes by mixing paints and cutting up paper. We encourage them to be creative, have fun and improves their ability to socialise with others.

 

Library

The library is a quiet learning resource which is regularly used by students for independent learning. Resources include IT workstations, challenging periodicals (eg The Economist), fiction in English and Spanish, as well as reference books relevant to the curriculum. The library is supervised at all times by a dedicated member of staff.

 

Science Lab

The school offers a well-equipped science laboratory. There is also a preparation room and storage area. The Laboratory has a computer with access to the Internet and an Interactive white board.
