What are the benefits of an education at the KFA?

Our children can explore the world from their classrooms in West London. They can also explore the wonders of our Capital City in support of that learning. This is because at the heart of the our educational programme is the need to investigate, enquire and explore – and to go further than questions of what and who into areas of how and why. Our pupils will:

  • be encouraged to think independently and drive their own learning
  • take part in programmes of education that can lead them to some of the highest ranking universities around the world
  • become more culturally aware, through the development of a second language be able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.

Our pupils develop strong academic, social and emotional characteristics.
