British curriculum

We follow the British National Curriculum, adhering to the rules and guidelines set out by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), recognised by the Spanish Ministry of Education.

The Spanish Department is responsible for teaching the subjects related to Spanish Language and Culture, and for ensuring the development of students in these areas.

The English curriculum emphasises both understanding and the acquisition of concepts and skills, along with the assimilation of knowledge. Thus our curriculum aims to ensure that students not only have knowledge but also, through the concepts and skills acquired, can think, reflect and continue learning throughout life.

The British education system favours practical and intuitive learning, encourages teamwork and establishes clear objectives that guarantee continuous monitoring of the educational process of students.

Methodology.

We recognise and treat the different needs of our students with respect. Thus, we propose a flexible curriculum adapted to the developmental needs of every boy and girl.

British College La Cañada aims to :

Create a warm, affectionate and safe environment for the student.

Forment students’ self esteem and respect for both the School and their classmates.

Encourage students to be tolerant, develop self-confidence and to feel free to develop their personal views and make their own decisions.

We propose a flexible curriculum, adapted to the stages of development of each child.

This educational system, taught by qualified native teachers in each of the stages, guarantees access to the main universities in the world, and of course, to Spanish ones. Thanks to British teaching, English has become a vehicular language of education, going far beyond mere bilingualism.
