Frequently Asked Questions

OUR
MISSION

Our pupils come from across the world and follow an educational programme grounded in inquiry and discovery, in an environment that cultivates community and growth, to prepare them for the challenges and possibilities ahead.

What are the highlights of a Kingsworth education?

Language and Continuity
At Kingsworth Primary Section we follow a British and French curriculum that complement each other thematically and linguistically. Students who transition from our Primary Section to Middle and Upper School Sections are supported academically as they are given the option to follow a full English curriculum, or to continue a portion of their studies in French.

Critical Thinking
Students are encouraged to develop active independent thinking by highly qualified instructors that are specialists in their field. Our methods are cutting edge, based on current pedagogical research that has clearly shown the benefits of text-based and inquiry based learning. We encourage our pupils not only to ask questions, but to listen to one another and to find answers together. An authentic international experience.

An Authentic International Experience
We pride ourselves on promoting cross-cultural education and global understanding as we develop pedagogical approaches that allow us to meet the individual, and constantly evolving, needs of our extremely diverse student body.

Why should I choose Kingsworth over other similar schools in Paris?

Kingsworth has outstanding academics and prides itself in rigor and a tradition of excellence. Our warm and welcoming staff balance this with a robust pastoral care program and an authentic desire for the best for each and every student.

What do students like most about Kingsworth?

Our families say that they are thrilled their child is happy to go to school every morning. During a time of transition, as many have relocated to France, the student’s well-being is of utmost importance, and we know that this will be the key to their ultimate academic success.

At the Early Years and Primary School level, classes are taught in both English and French. At the middle and high school level, classes are mainly taught in English, with the option for a French Section, where students will also take subjects in French and Foreign Language classes.

There is no language requirement. For the Middle and Upper School, we do hope that students have a strong English level, but it is not a requirement.
