About the British Council School - Madrid, Spain

The British Council School was established in Madrid in 1940, at a time when Europe was facing the challenge of the rise of fascism.

The school has always offered a bilingual and bicultural education, underpinned by its objective to develop future citizens with the core values of loyalty, flexibility, resilience, caring and challenge . The school facilitates cultural relations engagement with key target audiences through a high-quality, bilingual and bi-cultural curriculum to a school community of 2,000 children from 2 to 18 years of age. The school is part of the British Council , the United Kingdom's international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities worldwide. It is an integral part of their work in Spain and one of their flagship instruments of cultural relations.

The British Council School is a thriving, co-educational day school with superb facilities set on a large, well linked, modern campus. It is one of the most prestigious Schools in Spain, rated as outstanding in every category in its most recent BSO inspections. It achieves excellent results, both in Spanish and UK examination systems, and prepares its graduates to attend universities in Spain, the UK and around the world. Many of their more than 10,000 Alumni students - of both Spanish and other nationalities - have achieved significant professional recognition. The bond between the school and its students lasts a lifetime, thanks to the strong ties that it fosters during school life.

One of the School's main objectives is to enable students to demonstrate that they live and breathe the school's values, as well as the qualities required by universities and companies around the world, such as leadership, team work, negotiation skill and entrepreneurship.

The British Council and the school support a national network of state bilingual schools. School staff lead on training, offer shadowing opportunities and participate in a range of system wide and school specific improvement and development activities.

Our academic programme encourages passion and achievement in sciences and technology, languages, literature, the dramatic arts, sports and public speaking . High levels of pastoral care are achieved through our vertical Family System , which we believe enables our pupils to be the best that they can be.
