The beginning of the new school year is time for parents to decide what extracurricular activities their children will do.
Excellence in British Education at St. George's
At St. George’s we aim to stimulate a lifelong passion for learning, encouraging every child to fulfil their academic, personal and professional goals.
To do this, we follow the English National Curriculum, an internationally recognised and respected framework that opens the doors to prestigious universities throughout Spain, the UK, the USA, Europe and the rest of the world.
Learning skills to last a lifetime
The British curriculum is based up on the idea of developing transferable skills rather than simply memorising content for exams.
It provides a fun, practical, creative and interactive teaching and learning framework that focuses on encouraging students to become confident and independent thinkers. This way, they leave school with the capacity to successfully adapt to the demands of an ever-changing world.
The system prioritises decision-making and problem-solving skills, helping students to learn how to learn and teaching them to be intellectually agile and adaptable.
At present our students follow the English National Curriculum from Pre Nursery Class to Year 7 before switching over to the Spanish system. From September 2021 we will be progressively implementing the English National Curriculum until the entire school is following this curriculum.
The English National Curriculum also employs a system of continuous assessment, which provides a detailed and ongoing overview of each student’s progress and development, instead of requiring an intense period of testing and examination at the end of each year.
Class sizes are small, allowing our teachers to pay close attention to each individual student and to ensure their needs are appropriately met. We are able to devise clear learning pathways for each child and to plan the support and guidance they require to meet their academic and personal goals.
Beyond the classroom
At St. George’s we understand that learning does not only happen inside the classroom. We have a full programme of extracurricular activities, cultural excursions, exchange programmes, and active holidays designed to enrich the lives of our students, provide learning opportunities, and create lifelong memories.
Excellence does not only mean academic achievement.
One of the main keys to putting an end to the high obesity figures is to encourage children to develop good nutritional habits that they can carry on with throughout their lives.
With the start of each new school year comes a wealth of new opportunities, new challenges, new stepping stones...and attitude, in all of this, is the key to success.
