What defines us.
The English Centre vision is to strengthen our profile with our stakeholders and be a point of reference within the education sector, at both National and International levels. We will ensure the greatest degree of satisfaction for our families and pupils through an optimum and complete Curriculum with bespoke extensions across the whole school which is officially recognized nationally and internationally. This is supported by our methodology and a dedicated staff with high expectations who undergo continuous professional development and have gained public recognition in their fields. Based on continuous improvement and innovation in a collaborative environment, our pupils develop to the absolute best of their abilities and achieve excellent academic results. As they mature they acquire higher learning skills becoming self-confident, critical, independent thinkers, involved with society and the environment, familiar with other cultures, both reflective and respectful.
Our mission is to provide our pupils with a broad based Spanish curriculum, complemented by our extended International curriculum, and enriched with a range ECI projects. We aim to produce pupils who are fluent and confident in the use of languages and can recognise their strengths and interests in order to reach their full potential. Our pupils acquire leadership qualities which, added to their positive attitude and a life long love of learning, will enable them to make a valuable contribution to the diverse, international society of today.
