Despite the lockdown, we were delighted to celebrate World Book Day at ISM ...
Catch all for stories about ISM in general
Welcome to the International School of Madrid Summer School, which offers an enjoyable programme for children from the ages of 1-9 years old.
Our summer camp is a total immersion in English with our dedicated qualified teaching team. With a range of activities children will have fun and a very memorable summer!
Remember that all our activities are conducted in English.
English: Children will take part in two English activities each day. One, more formal, will follow a structured language programme, the other will allow children to learn, practise and develop their English skills through a wide range of fun, enjoyable and interactive activities. Stories and songs will be carried out with the younger children.
Sports and Games: Using both our indoor hall and the outdoor playground, children will take part in a range of physical games and activities based on their age, such as football, basketball, volleyball, water play.
Arts, Crafts and Cookery: Each day children will take part in art, craft or cookery workshops. As well as helping children to develop their creative talents, and being a lot of fun, these are a great way for children to practise following instructions in English.
Music, Drama and Computers: During the course a number of other workshops will be given, such as Music and Drama, as well as the opportunity to develop computing skills in our Computer Suite for the older children.
The price for the summer camp also includes:
Weekly Swimming Lessons for Pre-School and Primary: As part of the summer school we will be taking the children for a weekly swimming lesson to our local swimming pool. The instruction will be provided by Delfin instructors.
Excursions for children in the Primary Department: Once a week, the children will be taken to trips outside the school, below is a list of trips we made in Summer camp 2018. The trips will be finalised when we know the definitive number of children attending:

Just before semana blanca, all students in years 7, 8 and 9 went to the cinema to see this year’s ‘mejor película’ – Campeones. For some, it was their 4th time seeing this important movie and they still haven’t had enough. On our return to school, we were extremely fortunate to be visited by Álvaro Longoria, the film’s producer who also has his children at ISM. Álvaro gave us a wonderful talk about the journey to get the movie made and then the students had an opportunity to ask questions and get to hold a real Goya.
Many thanks to Álvaro for giving up his time to speak to us and answer so many questions, and to Conchita Sande for organising the day.
With just 3 months to go before external exams start, Year 13 are already beginning to prepare for the end of their time at ISM. Sweatshirts have just arrived which many of them will be wearing on the ski slopes next week during ‘semana blanca’.
However, there is just the small matter of internal examinations to get through before they can hit the slopes. Years 11-13 are sitting exams in all their subjects this week. This is a great indicator for both staff and students of how they will do in the summer.
Good luck to them all!
Just before Christmas, El Economista interviewed Mr McClement.
Check out the link below to see what he had to say.
The standard of this year’s Christmas Shows was incredibly high. Thank you to all involved for your effort and dedication. Tuesday saw modern dance and percussion followed by key stage two performing the musicals “Children of the World” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”. This was followed on Thursday by the ballet show, the foundation stage performance of “The Lost Little Reindeer” and key stage one’s traditional Nativity. Filling an 800 seat theatre on two nights is an amazing achievement. Well done!
Congratulations to all players in the tournament on Thursday 15th November. Mr O’Riordan made the following comment about the competition:
‘We won 1 game, lost 1 and drew 1 and only went out on goal difference so we came 5th overall. We have a very strong squad and most of our players can play again next year so I’m really looking forward to that- something to build on and hope to win next year!’
Friday 26th October saw the 2nd ever ISM House Football Tournament. St Patrick’s, St George’s, St David’s and St Andrew’s houses were proudly represented by all members of secondary. The tournament was split into KS3 girls, KS3 boys, KS4&5 girls, KS4&5 boys, with every student participating in at least one match. Even the teachers got involved by wearing their house colours and leading the cheerleading from the sidelines. Well done to all involved and to Mr O’Riordan for organising such a fun day!
