Opportunity & Success on a Global Stage
The King’s Group vision is to create a global community of pupils and staff; broadening horizons, fostering understanding and raising aspirations by connecting our academies with other schools across the world.
At King’s Academy Binfield, we believe that an internationally minded curriculum builds cultural understanding, improves communication skills, and promotes knowledge and awareness of the wider world. Enrichment activities such as International Day and overseas partnership projects provide unique opportunities for students to explore people and places beyond the limitations of their surroundings.
Coordinating our international work at King’s Academy Binfield is Jessica Wetherell. If you are interested in getting involved in our international projects by volunteering knowledge, or sharing your experiences or expertise, please contact us.
For more information on the KGA International Dimension, please contact International Director, Louisa Perkins.
British School Algiers - Teacher Placements
As part of our promise to provide opportunity and success on a global stage to both students and staff, our international school partnerships extend to teaching experience placements. In July 2023, we welcomed qualified teachers from The British School Algiers to undertake placements at King’s Academy Binfield in both the Primary and Secondary phases. Yasmine wrote the following of her time at Binfield:
“The experience has been incredibly beneficial and has left a profound impact on my personal and professional growth. The opportunity to work with such passionate educators and enthusiastic students has been nothing short of inspiring. The guidance and support provided throughout the teaching placement have been invaluable. It has deepened my understanding of effective teaching methodologies and allowed me to develop my skills as an educator. I have gained valuable insights and practical knowledge that I will carry with me throughout my career.”
KGA looks forward to continuing to grow the partnership with The British School Algiers to involve further placements and student collaborations.
All King’s Group Academies came alive with the colours, sounds and celebrations of the countries and cultures represented in each school in the Summer Term 2023. International Celebration days are an opportunity to embrace the rich diversity of our student bodies as well as learn more about the experiences of our friends in our partner schools around the world.
A key fixture on the calendars of all King’s Group Academies is International Day. On this day, our schools come alive with the colours, sounds and celebrations of the countries and cultures represented in their communities and curriculums. International Days are an opportunity to embrace the rich diversity of our student bodies as well as learn more about the experiences of our friends in our partner schools around the world.
From activities in language, sport, music, art, global issues and cultural traditions, students are exposed to a rich tapestry of ideas in creative and collaborative ways on KGA International Days.
Ultimately, integrating International Days into the school calendar not only enhances the educational experience but also prepares students to be informed and compassionate global citizens in an increasingly interconnected world.
