The International School of Madrid is a British school in Spain. We follow the English National Curriculum throughout, which means that students gain an education as if they were in a school in the UK. This is not solely about becoming bilingual in English and Spanish. A British education allows pupils to ask questions, to be creative and dynamic and to learn from first-hand experience. The curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of every student, providing exposure to a broad and balanced range of stimulating and motivating learning experiences. A variety of teaching methods are employed to ensure that each student progresses at their own pace. The official examinations in the British system, including IGCSE at age 16 and A-level at age 18 are recognised globally, allowing students to attend universities around the world. In addition our students also take lessons in the subjects of Spanish Lengua y Literatura and Cultura Española so that they can validate their studies with the Spanish system.
