Year 7 (12 years old) - Year 11 (16 years old)
El Limonar International School Villamartín follows the National Curriculum for England and Wales for subjects taught in English. Until the end of Secondary, Year 11, pupils study 80% of their day in English and the remaining 20% in Spanish. In Years 7, 8 and 9 a third language is also compulsory (French or German).
During Year 10 and Year 11 all pupils study towards IGCSEs and follow the compulsory programme in Spanish as marked by the Spanish Ministry of Education.
Pupils with little or no knowledge of English may be admitted to the school to join our English Immersion Programmes, which last between a term to a whole academic year. Pupils focus their efforts in learning English in order to raise their linguistic competence to such a level which allows them to operate in the mainstream class.
ENGLISH ACCESS COURSE for pupils from Year 7 onwards
During three months, pupils follow a highly intensive one-term course designed so that students strengthen their knowledge and understanding of the language and develop the skills needed to access the rest of the curriculum.
