Year 12 (17 years old) - Year 13 (18 years old)
After Year 11 the school offers A-Level courses and Bachillerato Modalidad courses.
A-Levels (Advanced Levels) take two years to complete. Pupils study towards 3 or 4 A levels according to their abilities, interests and ambitions. In order to enter A-level, pupils must gain at least 5 IGCSEs or equivalent, at Grade C or above. Pupils should achieve a grade B or above in the subjects they wish to study at A-Level.
A-Levels prepare students for university entrance in the UK, Spain and other international institutions. However, for entrance to certain courses in Spanish Universities we recommend that students choose to study, alongside their A-Levels, Bachillerato Modalidad subjects in order to prepare for the Spanish university entrance exam, Selectividad.
In addition to the A-Level results, the Bachillerato Modalidad results and the Selectividad exam results contribute to obtaining a higher “numerus clausus” which will be needed to access some degree courses in Spain.
Students graduate from the school with dual official qualifications: at the end of Secondary, the British IGCSEs and the Spanish ‘Graduate in Compulsory Secondary Education’ certificate; and the Spanish ‘Baccalaureate’ certificate and English A-Level certificates, at the end of their Sixth Form studies
