Our mission is to provide high quality British education that delivers a transformative learning experience to all our pupils.
Engaging and effective teaching based on our core values and the best, most up-to-date UK educational practice enables children at our schools to achieve their academic ambitions and lifetime careers. At the same time we nurture their individual talents and emphasise the importance of educating the whole child with attention to their physical, emotional and social development.
We are determined to make a positive difference to the future of our pupils and their families and the careers of our staff, as well as contributing to the wider community.
About King’s College Latvia
The school has opened its doors in August 2017 and is the first British school in the country. Sitting on a site occupying 20,000 m2 within the Saliena development in Riga, Latvia’s capital city, the school will offer the local and surrounding communities the opportunity to benefit from a quality British education, the hallmark of King’s College.
The school has been designed to hold approximately 580 pupils and will eventually cater for children from the age of 2 years old (Pre-Nursery), through to 18 years old (Year 13). It initially offers places to children between the ages of 2 and 10 years old. As these pupils progress through their academic journey, the school will expand to cater for pupils up to 18 years old.
At King’s College our pupils study in the British curriculum which is renowned globally as being the gold star of educational systems. Pupils learn through hands-on practical experiences that aim to enrich the whole child’s growth. A British education gives our alumni the best opportunities to work in challenging and interesting careers all over the world. We believe that the fundamental values that they learn while at King’s College will also help them to have happy and fulfilling family lives.
