Ready to join the King's College School Panama Family?

Our admissions policy is to allocate the appropriate placement for the candidate, so that they may benefit fully from the education we offer.

We have extensive experience in welcoming students who transfer to our schools at all year groups. We aim to work closely with your child’s previous school to ensure a smooth transition, academically and pastorally, through our well-established student induction programme.

King’s College is an international school and as such is open for admissions the whole year round. We are always delighted to meet with parents and show them around the school.

Assessment & Interview

After registration, your child will be invited to take an online assessment (CAT 4) and attend an interview with either the Head of School or a member of the Senior Leadership Team. For Early Years Nursery applicants, there are no assessments.

Pupils with no/little prior knowledge of English must agree to a programme of EAL as recommended by the school and parents should expect to be liable for the incurred costs. The duration of the EAL course will be decided by the school.

New pupils are not required to have any previous knowledge of Spanish. Pupils joining the school with a low level or no prior knowledge of the language may receive Spanish as an Additional Language (MFL) classes.




Should we conclude that King's College School Panama is appropriate for your child and entry assessments have been completed successfully, a place will be awarded.


Pay Admission Fees

After a place has been offered, you will receive payment information from the Admissions department.


Validating International Transcripts/Report Cards

The Panamanian Ministry of Education (MEDUCA), the legal entity that oversees academic institutions in Panama, requires that all students entering 2nd to 12th grade (Year 3 to Year 13 in the British system) from a school abroad, conduct a validation process. All transcripts/report cards issued outside of Panama must be apostilled in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or in an Embassy of the country that issued the transcript, to later be validated through MEDUCA. This procedure is a requirement to officially enrol the student in Panama into the correct grade level.

Please also note, that in cases where the documentation is issued in a language other than Spanish, the documents must be translated by an authorised public translator who will provide their official stamp/seal onto such translation.
