Results & Performance
All students study both the international curriculum requirements in English and the essential components of the Spanish curriculum, thereby allowing them to achieve dual certification at the end of Year 11: Spanish GESO (compulsory Secondary Education) and IGCSEs (International General Certificate of Secondary Education). During Years 12 and 13 (Sixth Form) all students continue to their studies in order to achieve double qualifications, following a programme of A-Level and ‘Fase Específica’ subjects. Our students therefore gain A-Level and ‘Título de Bachiller’ qualifications which allow them to access universities in Spain, in the UK and around the world.
All staff at El Limonar International School Murcia are proud of our community and actively promote positive values. Personal relations are based on mutual respect and confidence and we strive to ensure that all students feel cared for and safe. Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) classes run vertically throughout the school, and allow Tutors the time to develop their overall awareness of their tutees’ needs on an academic, social and emotional level. This programme is complemented by weekly Assemblies at each level, our mentoring programme and the work of our student council.
