King’s College schools, ranked among the top international schools in Spain by EL MUNDO newspaper

King’s College schools of Madrid, Alicante and Murcia have been recognised among the best international schools in Spain by the RANKING DE LOS 100 MEJORES COLEGIOS, a highly respected publication that the Spanish newspaper EL MUNDO has issued every year since 1999.

While King’s College Madrid and King’s College Alicante have been consistently recognised in this ranking in the past, this is the first time King’s College Murcia has also been cited. This is due to the fact that this year the school in Murcia has reached its 10th anniversary and thus, has been able to apply for consideration in the Ranking.

Farewell to our Head Groundsman

We were sad to say farewell to our Head groundsman Fulgencio this week. Fulgencio has worked at King’s College Alicante for the past 6 years, leading and coordinating the maintenance teams to ensure that the school environs are safe, welcoming and kept to the highest standards.  He always carried out his tasks with good humour and nothing was ever too much trouble for him, even under some trying circumstances at times.

He is starting his new job this week, closer to his home near Murcia.  We made a presentation to Fulgencio this week to show our apreciation for all his work over the past 6 years and wished him well in his new job.
