King's Group Academies

International Dimension

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 Prospect, 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, overseas partnership projects and overseas trips provide unique opportunities for students to explore people and places beyond the limitations of their surroundings.

Coordinating our international work at King’s Academy Prospect is Sarah Euillet. 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.

International Days

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. At King’s Academy Prospect one of the most popular elements of our international celebrations was having the opportunity to dress in the traditional costume or colours of our countries of heritage.

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.

 

Overseas Trips

At King’s Academy Prospect we offer many opportunities for students to travel overseas and explore different places and cultures. Here is a taste of the experiences we have been able to offer our students this school year.

November 2023 - Visit to Christmas markets in Germany

It was a long journey there. We went to a Christmas market on our first night and it was beautiful. The amount of lights were amazing, but the food was the best part. We ate a waffle with Nutella on it, which was amazing. When we arrived at the second market, the next day, we ate Currywurst mit Pommes, it was very sweet but tasted nice. We also had Bratwurst which was huge but was the best thing I had. 

We also went to Phantasialand, which was an amazing experience with the lights, the food and the rides. I went on a ride called Fly and another I don’t know the name of, but was fast. We also went to a chocolate factory/museum where we tasted and found out a lot about the chocolate there.

On the last day we went to the RheinEnergie Stadion which was an amazing sight and lots to learn about the history of Köln FC and where players went and what they did.

Overall it was an amazing experience and one that should happen again for other years and other people who couldn’t experience it, but it was a beautiful time and a lot of fun.

January 2023 - Ski Trip in Italy

I had so much fun learning how to ski as well as gaining new friends and making great memories. I loved all the food we had (which was mainly different types of pasta) and how beautiful the mountains were. The actual skiing was really fun, and  was quite easy to learn. We went on many different slopes, all of which varied in size and steepness, making it a new adventure every day. The evening activities were fun, but it was nice to be able to relax after the day finished. My favourite activities were ice-skating, the disco and exploring the town to get to the pastry shop where I had a delicious pastry filled with a creamy chocolate sauce. I really want to go again!
