Lifetime Success

Academic Excellence is a common theme to run across all King’s College schools.  Our pupils leave school upon completing their studies in Year 13 to go on to join the world’s best universities, including the UK’s Russell Group, Oxford and Cambridge and America’s Ivy League, as well as many other top institutions across the globe.

Our reputation is built upon the success of our pupils. We are educational experts; we know how to get the very best out of your children. Becoming a young adult at the same time as working hard to learn, these years are hugely important to your child. We challenge and support pupils, so that they are able to achieve their very best academically and personally. We have the expertise to get them through the exams and the experience to guide them towards the ideal university for their future.

2020 IGCSE Results

2020 was the first year that King’s College School La Moraleja had a Year 11 graduating cohort. Thus this was the first year that our students undertook the exams. Amid a challenging year for all schools across the globe, we are proud to have been able to always ensure continuity of learning, be it on-site or online, which has proven to be invaluable to our students whom we are delighted to share have excelled in their IGCSE results.

Overall, the cohort performed as follows:

Papers graded A* (9-8) 50%
Papers graded A* – A (9-7) 72%
Papers graded with a strong pass 99%


With extremely notable mentions from the following students:

  • María José G M excelled by securing a grade 9 in all her GCSE subjects
  • Fernando María T P achieved 100% grade 8 and above including five grade 9s
  • Erika T de J, Carlota N H, Andrea T W & Silvia S Á achieved a grade 8 or above in all their subjects.


Headteacher Mrs June Donnan commented “These outstanding academic results reflect the commitment, talent and hard work of both our pupils and staff.  The academic excellence that these grades showcase, alongside the importance that we place as a school on the pastoral care and wellbeing of our students, simply highlight that happy students are successful ones! I am so very proud of all our students and am delighted to see them go on to fulfil the next stage of their academic journey at King’s College and look forward to hearing about their A Level or IB successes in 2 years’ time!  I am confident that all of our students will go on to realise their dreams with such an impressive, academic foundation.”

Deputy Headteacher Mr Jeremy Newton added “Alongside being ‘Excellent’ in all areas in our external British Schools Overseas Inspection Report (2019) and defined as a ‘World Class’ school by the High Performance Learning Programme, these results firmly place King’s College School as one of the leading international schools in the world.”

Top universities increasingly look at the whole person, not just exam results. We know how to inspire and develop the passions and interests of children outside the curriculum. We have a team of expert teachers who keep up to date with the different requirements of universities around the world. So we know what universities as far away as New York, Australia and Abu Dhabi demand from pupils, as well as universities in the UK.
