King’s Infant School, The British School of Elche is proud to be the only British school in Elche, accredited by the Department for Education in the UK (Registration Number 6150).

The school achieved a rating of “Good” in every category which is an excellent indication of the high-quality and standards that are embedded through teaching and learning, despite only opening its doors in September 2017.


Elena Benito, King’s Group CEO added “external inspections are an essential part of our Group’s ethos.  We want to ensure that our schools are directly comparable with the best British schools on UK soil. We chose to undergo an early inspection in KISE as we were confident in these early years since the school opened, of the high-quality education that our pupils are receiving, so were keen to have this validated through the inspection.”


To be recognised by the DfE, as a British School Overseas (BSO), schools must have an inspection report which shows that their performance against all the BSO standards is at least “satisfactory”. This reflects the standards required for continuing registration as a school in England. Following a successful BSO inspection, schools are allocated a unique reference number on the UK’s national school reference system, Edubase.


Headteacher Iain Blakie commented “I very much look forward to developing the school’s standards as we continue to grow and am excited for the next inspection in which I am certain our school will receive even higher recognition
