Educación Secundaria Obligatoria (ESO), Compulsory Secondary Education, is a compulsory educational stage which completes the child’s basic education.  It consists of four academic years which normally take place between the ages of 12 and 16.

It is organised according to common educational principles and related to the students’ diversity, focusing on his or her educational and professional orientation.
Its purpose is:
 To have all students obtain the basic elements of a general knowledge:  humanistic, artistic, scientific and technological.
 To develop and consolidate study and work habits.
 To prepare students for higher education and for insertion in the labour force.
 To prepare everyone in the use of their rights and obligation as citizens.
At LAUDE San Pedro, we place great importance on languages. A high percentage of our subjects are taught in English and we also prepare our students for official exams.

Our ESO students enjoy classes in a British environment, which allows a faster development in the learning of the language.
