23 Apr Queen’s College, Mallorca
Occupying an idyllic location overlooking the bay of Palma, nearby woodland and Bellver Castle, Queen’s College was founded in 1977. At present approximately 300 pupils ranging from 3 to 18 years attend, the majority of who are either British or Spanish. The school is an inspected and approved member of the National Association of British Schools in Spain. A British curriculum is followed leading eventually to GCSE and GCE ‘A’ level examinations. Alongside the British curriculum, selected components of the official Spanish curriculum are offered to Spanish students and others capable of studying in both languages. This dual programme of studies is fully con-validated by the Spanish Ministry of Education for both foreign and Spanish students. Facilities include 18 classrooms, science laboratory, library, computer room, multi-function hall, dining room and playground. Entry to the school is normally through school assessment and a satisfactory report from the pupil’s previous school.
