Set on 10 Hectares (25 acres) of grounds, King’s College Saint Michaels is a small, friendly, international secondary boarding school offering GCSE, A Levels, accredited University Foundation, academic preparation, short-term immersion and English language focused summer courses to students from all over the world. Specialist English language provision is provided and plays a major role in the curriculum with almost all students going on to study at universities in Britain.
Great Britain has, for a long time, had a well deserved reputation for the quality of its education and Saint Michael’s continues in this tradition by offering intensive tuition by well qualified teachers in small classes.The great variety of nationalities who study at the school provides a stimulating intellectual atmosphere for all.
Great emphasis is placed on the personal attention which we give to each student. Each member of the teaching staff acts as personal tutor to a small group of students and ensures that parents are well informed of their child’s progress.
The school is coeducational and offers modern on-campus boarding facilities, together with some host family accommodation in carefully selected local families. A varied and exciting sports and social programme, including excursions, sports teams and cultural activities, is also provided.
