The Secondary site is only minutes from the centre of Javea and some 400 metres from the Mediterranean Sea. Teaching rooms are clustered around a central courtyard with a separate playground to the rear. Small class sizes promote an atmosphere in which effective teaching and learning can thrive. All students in Year 7 to Year 11 are issued with a Samsung Galaxy tablet to enhance their education. We offer First Language Programmes in Spanish in addition to the broad and balanced English National Curriculum. Special arrangements can also be made for first language classes in French and German. Exam results are excellent and compare favourably with other non-selective independent schools elsewhere in Europe. Virtually all our Year 13 students proceed to University, mainly in the UK, Germany and Spain
Secondary 11 - 16
In Secondary emphasis is placed on increasing the skills, knowledge and ability in the Arts, Mathematics, the Sciences and languages. English, Spanish and German or French are studied by all students. In Years 7 to 9 students follow a broad based curriculum similar to the Primary years but are taught by specialist subject teachers, often in small groups according to ability.
Year 10 and 11 students follow a two-year course, which leads to the International General Certificate of Second Education (IGCSE) examinations in nine subjects, typically. These exams can be fully convalidated with the Spanish certificate of completion of secondary education (graduado en Educación Secundaria Obligatoria).
All students study English or English as a second language, Mathematics, Spanish and Sciences. Optional subjects include Art, Economics, Drama, English Literature, French, German, Geography, History and I.C.T. As in all comparable schools only certain combinations of these optional subjects are possible within our busy timetable.
