An independent co-educational secondary day and boarding school in Somerset, England, King’s College, Taunton, has joined hands with educators in India to form the first British Partnership school in the country. Rohtak city in the Indian state of Haryana was selected as the location for this school, keeping in mind the city’ educational background.
The school, King’s College India, is scheduled to open in August 2016 for children of 1st to 8th Standard. The admission process is likely to start from November 2015. The school will take enrolments for children aged between six and 13, similar to the UK’s Prep-school system.
Initially, the curriculum will be based on the British Common Entrance system, which generates academic excellence for children up to 13 years of age and prepares a platform for high-performing success at IGCSE and A-levels in future.
King’s College India will offer a range of boarding options including day boarding, flexi boarding (selected nights), weekly boarding and full boarding. The boarders will enjoy the facilities of a high standard of house accommodation – with homely common rooms and dormitories combined with sympathetic and dedicated House Parents that ensure a warm hearted and happy environment.
King’s College India aims to instill a desire for excellence and a love of learning in its students which extends beyond the confines of the academic classroom. The school believes that all students should develop independent, enquiring minds and be encouraged to realise their full potential in the classroom, artistically and in sports.
