Key Stage 1 (from age 5 to 7)
In Primary our children embark on the next stage of their education where they continue to study the English National Curriculum. A more formal approach to education is gradually introduced alongside learning through play and exploration. At this stage children also begin to study Spanish language and culture.
Key Stage 2 (from age 7 to 11)
During the next stage of education, children develop their skills in a more academic setting. They continue to follow the English National Curriculum as well as a full Spanish programme. As in Foundation and Key Stage 1 we focus strongly on language acquisition skills.
Children are encouraged to use their computer skills across the curriculum. Creativity is encouraged and nurtured through music, drama and art. Our on-site facilities and swimming pool are used to teach a full range of sports activities. Extra-curricular activities are organised during lunchtime as well as after school.
As an international college, we are committed to the teaching of modern languages throughout a child’s education. Children have the opportunity to achieve fluency in two and sometimes three languages by the end of their primary education.
As an international school in Spain we are committed to teaching Spanish as a core subject from early years through to A-levels and University access.
From the age of 2 children are immersed in a bilingual environment, stimulating the early acquisition of both Spanish and English. Spanish is taught as a subject to all children from Foundation 2. From Year 3 it is taught at different levels – as a modern foreign language and at advanced/native level. All Spanish and many non-native children follow our first language programme in Primary.
