King’s College, The British School of Latvia provides a unique educational environment that puts children and their families at the heart of all we do.
In our school we take pride in delivering inspirational teaching which draws on the best practices of the National Curriculum for England and Wales. This curriculum is designed to inspire children and to create a desire to want to learn more, through the linking of subjects and by providing practical learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. We believe that learning does not need to be confined only to the classroom and we include Outdoor Learning as part of our school curriculum for every child.
At King’s College Latvia each child is an individual and as such, we ensure that our pupils receive a learning journey that is as unique as they are. Our teachers are trained to respond to the needs and interests of the children when planning their learning.
Our students gain an exemplary academic education, while at the same time are equipped with the social and critical thinking skills, to allow them to embrace the challenges of an ever-evolving world. We believe in values education and therefore our values permeate all we do. Children develop a rich ethical vocabulary at King’s College Latvia.
An obvious part of that world is the importance for our pupils to understand local Latvian culture, values and heritage, whilst at the same time learning to develop into global citizens. We take our social responsibilities very seriously at King’s College Latvia and students are active supporters of local charities.
We see each one of our students as a future leader and as such we nurture these skills giving them opportunities to take on many responsibilities within the school community. Our students are members of a house team and work together to collect House points and to drive friendly competition between the Houses.
As a King’s College school we benefit from being a close sister school to the other British International Schools within the prestigious “King’s Group”. This allows us to draw on a wealth of experience and opens up a world of learning opportunities for our pupils and staff alike. In choosing King’s, you can be assured your child’s future is in dedicated, experienced and safe hands.
It would give me great pleasure to welcome you and your family to our school for a visit and to have the opportunity to share with you our very special community.
