Learning Journey

Early Years Foundation Stage

NURSERY & RECEPTION

Through creative play, children develop language and personal, social and intellectual skills whilst exploring their environment and emotions. Within the seven areas of learning, teachers observe and assess children in order to create individualised programmes to enhance their learning experiences.

Key Stage 1

YEARS 1-2

Our intention at this key stage is to build secure foundations for learning as a platform for success. The curriculum is designed to balance both academic and creative subjects with breadth of study. Students are introduced to a range of new learning experiences whilst still being nurtured as young individuals at the beginning of their learning journey.

Key Stage 2

YEARS 3-6

At this key stage, we are developing confident, independent learners. Depth of knowledge, skills and understanding continue to be developed through literacy, numeracy and project-based learning. Students have the opportunity to select a third language, which they will continue to study during their secondary education. Students take on extra responsibilities as members of the school community.

Key Stage 3

YEARS 7-9

Students are given a strong foundation in the secondary curriculum by studying a broad range of academic subjects combined with PE, PSHE and Carousel (Music, Drama, Food Technology and Mixed Media). We encourage our students to develop new skills and to understand how they can improve their learning.

Key Stage 4

YEARS 10-11

Students study a core of Maths, English, Science, languages, PE and PSHE with optional GCSE subjects. Students select optional GCSEs and enjoy in-depth learning tailored to their personal interests and strengths.

Key Stage 5

YEARS 12-13

Students study a highly specialised set of subjects which reflect their university aspirations, and receive personal support for their future career choices. They also participate in an enrichment curriculum and have the opportunity to take on leadership roles within school.

1º-2º ESO

Students follow the Spanish ESO programme with a core of Maths, Spanish, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences. 60% of the subjects are taught in the English language so that students graduate with high levels of both English and Spanish.

3º-4º ESO

Students follow the same programme but the percentage of subjects taught in English decreases slightly to prepare them for Bachillerato. In 4º ESO the students choose either Humanities or Sciences; both routes share core subjects: Spanish Language, History and English.

1º-2º Bachillerato

Students have a choice of subject routes and the option to prepare for the Cambridge Advanced and Proficiency exams. As well as in-school assessments, students prepare for two Selectividad examinations at the end of Year 13 in order to increase their potential maximum grade to 14 points.
