Caring for your children


We want students to be part of a positive, friendly and supportive learning environment where they learn to demonstrate respect for others. We support all students to achieve their best and be happy at school while enjoying their learning.

We also aim to help students who experience any difficulties that arise during their time at school. From the young children in our Early Years Department, to older children studying for their IGCSEs or IB Diploma qualifications, it is our priority that every child feels safe and welcome in our school environment.

Our Pastoral and Well-being Leader ensures that the needs of our students are considered and met through the curriculum and the Assembly Programme. Additionally, our School Counselling Service, supports students with any emotional or personal difficulties and will seek parental input when required.

As a basic principle, King's College School, Panama actively encourages communication between school and parents. We seek to build a strong school community and endeavour to involve parents fully in the education of their children. This partnership as an essential aspect of our care for every individual in our school and is a major factor in the successful development of our learners.

From home to a house


From the first day a of school at King's College School, Panama, enrolled children are assigned to one of the four School Houses. Older house members support the younger or new students during events and projects that involve friendly competition between the House teams. House membership is a social component of life at school and helps to builds friendship and community across all school Year groups.

Making a mentor


Mentors are older students who are available to help younger students engage with new concepts. Peer mentors help others in the school community who may be having difficulty in a particular class or subject area. Teaching others helps the mentor to consolidate their own learning, while helping others by offering support.
