19 Apr St. George British School, Madrid
St. George offers a British International education to children of families living in Madrid, both expatriate and local. Their curriculum takes the best of the British education system and effectively adapts it so that students develop as globally-minded, international individuals. Pupils at St. George follow courses based on the National Curriculum and recognised British examinations, in conjunction with obligatory elements of the Spanish curriculum. They study a wide range of subjects from the British curriculum and, in addition, Spanish language and humanities. In this way, they receive a broad and balanced bicultural education which prepares them effectively for further study in either system. Teaching approaches are varied and flexible to suit the purpose or context. Pupils learn essentially through thinking for themselves, experimenting, exploring and investigating. They also learn how to work independently, and in teams.
