Our school follows the National Curriculum for England and Wales in all subjects except Lengua y cultura españolas, which is a Spanish national requirement. In the last two years of Secondary all students follow programmes of study that prepare them for IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) syllabus and examinations. As all our students study both the international curriculum requirements in English and the essential requirements of the Spanish curriculum, they all complete their Secondary education with dual certification in both the Spanish GESO (compulsory Secondary education) and UK/International systems.
