Academic Achievements

At ISM our aim is to help each one of our pupils to achieve his or her very best. Students at ISM are fully prepared for University in the UK, Spain, the US and many other countries. All studies at ISM are validated with the Spanish Ministry of Education.

2020 Exam Results

Our students surpassed the UK National average in all areas.

School closures, due to the global pandemic, made the 2020 exam season unlike any other. However, despite these challenges our students excelled themselves. Once again they achieved above UK and international averages in the various subjects at IGCSE and A-level (where the pass rate was 100%). Half of grades this year were the top A* or A grades and three-quarters received A*, A or B grades. Out students have, therefore, as always, been able to enter their universities of choice in the UK, Spain and around the world. We currently have students in 9 out of the 10 top ranked UK universities.
