The whole philosophy of the IB Diploma with its emphasis on international education, a holistic approach and independent learning lies right at the heart of our teaching. We offer all the opportunities students could wish for to access authentic, contemporary material, through our IT facilities and through our emphasis on the importance of connecting with the country in as many ways as we can. There will also be the opportunity to spend time in Spain through study visits. We have three native speakers in the department, who help raise standards of achievement in Spanish at every level.
