The British school in Bilbao
Established in 1956, St. George's is a private British international school in Bilbao (Biscay). We offer a multilingual education for pupils aged two to 18. Our teaching methods combine innovative methodologies, personal attention and values education. Our aim is clear: to prepare our pupils to reach their full potential and to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
At St. George's British International School we offer our students a complete educational experience, which goes beyond purely academic. Our students become well-rounded citizens, socially responsible and respectful of others. Music, sport, creative arts and technology form an essential part of our curriculum. Our students finish their pre-university studies as bilingual young people, with a solid academic preparation that gives them access to prestigious universities, both in Spain and in the UK, USA or any other international destination.
Founded in 1956, it is the first and only British school in Biscay to offer the English National Curriculum from the age of two upwards. We follow a curriculum that promotes and fosters both academic excellence and the all-round development of our pupils, preparing them to transform tomorrow, through the renowned British curriculum, with a clear international vocation.
Our British curriculum
As a British school in Bilbao we follow the UK curriculum, called the English National Curriculum, whilst meeting the Spanish curriculum requirements of the Basque Ministry of Education; a unique configuration which allows us to provide a fully bilingual education from Pre Nursery Class upwards (two years old).
At present, our pupils follow the English National Curriculum from Pre-Nursery Class to Year 9. We will gradually extend the British curriculum year by year until all our pupils follow the British curriculum, eventually studying for IGCSE and A-Level examinations. This gradual transition will be completed by 2025.
The British Curriculum is a world-renowned system that combines academic excellence with practical learning, providing students with a dynamic, interactive and highly motivating learning environment that enhances their learning style. The key to the success of our educational programme is to develop the different skills of each child, with a highly personalised curriculum, which encourages critical thinking, research and practical experiences, where the content matters as much as the skills and abilities of each student.
