About the School
This international school is a co-educational day and boarding British curriculum school in Madrid, which provides British education for children from pre-nursery to year 13. It was founded in 1969.
The school offers the English National Curriculum in English, along with Spanish classes. In Year 12 there is a choice between the British A-Levels and the Spanish Bachillerato. The schools' educational programme is based on the English National Curriculum and offers a British education to children from Pre-Nursery to University Entrance. The curriculum leads to the GCSE examinations at the end of Year 11 (age 16), principally using the IGCSE board (Cambridge International Board, recognised generally as a higher standard). These studies are officially recognised by the Spanish Ministry of Education through the process of validation. In their final two years, pupils study for the London University (Edexcel) GCE A Level examinations, leading to international university entrance. Alternatively, they may opt for the Spanish Bachillerato. In addition the school offers the "Parte Específica" to those A Level students wishing to apply for entrance to Spanish universities. In either case students may apply for places at universities throughout the world.
The schools objectives are not simply to ensure that all students are bilingual in English and Spanish. A British education creates open-minded, creative and dynamic individuals. Students will learn from first-hand experience, not just text books. They will be encouraged to be creative in their thinking and they are expected to work hard every day.
