Superintendent's Welcome

Welcome to the online home of King Faisal School,

KFS is an International Baccalaureate Continuum School offering three IB programmes to over 1,400 students from the ages of 3 to 18 (girls currently until 6 years old). The school is organised into Pre-School, Primary School and Senior School, each with its own Principal, leadership team and character but very much part of one school offering a seamless and fun journey from entrance to graduation. Many of our current pupils are the sons of former students who have a life-long relationship and love of the school.

My own journey within the International Baccalaureate began with my first Headship post in New York, falling in love with the city and the Learner Profile at the same time! Subsequent Headships in London and Leeds have confirmed my belief that the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes offered at King Faisal School provide the premium education framework for hungry young minds. A KFS education produces students who are fit to lead in a forward thinking and internationally minded community.

As Executive Principal, I work with the individual Principals to provide an overview of the school and its vision for future growth and development. We have exciting plans for the future and aim to develop the curriculum and campus over the coming years. We are extremely lucky to have the backing and support of the King Faisal Foundation which opens up opportunities and relationships with other educational institutes and businesses in the King Faisal family.

Unlike many schools in major cities, KFS is blessed with a very large, spacious and green campus. Our facilities, lying inside the Diplomatic Quarter, are excellent allowing our learners to engage in many exciting opportunities to make the learner profile come to life. Be it in class, extra-curricular activities or educational visits we challenge our students to enable their all-round development as learners and thinkers.

As with all schools it is extremely difficult to sum up KFS in such a short introduction, however I hope that you are able to spend time investigating our website, social media and videos, I very much look forward to welcoming you to KFS in the near future.

All best wishes,

Mr J M McElhone

Superintendent
