O Castro British School is a private and secular school, located in Alto de San Cosme (Mos), very close to the City University of Vigo. It is the first and only British school in Galicia to teach all educational stages, from 3 years (Nursery) to Sixth Form – the equivalent of the Spanish Baccalaureate (18 years). Our students follow the National Curriculum of the United Kingdom, a curriculum designed to meet the specific needs of each child individually, with English as the language of instruction at our school.

O Castro British School is the only British school in Galician to teach all educational stages, from Early Years (3 years of age) through to Sixth Form (the equivalent of the Spanish Baccalaureat). Our educational project opens doors to our students’ future and as a proud member of Globeducate, we offer a wide network of resources, multicultural experiences and international events that provide our students with a genuine global perspective.
Our curriculum follows the National Curriculum of England and the core subjects of the Spanish curriculum in the region of Galicia (Spanish Language and Literature, Galician Language and Literature and Social Sciences / Geography&History). It is recognized by the British Council, accredited by the NABSS (Association of British Schools in Spain) and approved by the Xunta de Galicia.
As a Globeducate school we are committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030. Children entering education today will graduate as young adults in 2035: we must prepare them for jobs and technologies that do not exist today, to solve problems that have not yet been foreseen. We must encourage our students to take charge and shape their own future: we want them to be global citizens capable of changing the world.
Founded in September 2012, O Castro British School was designed to meet the high standards expected of today’s international private schools. The school buildings incorporate energy-efficient facilities and classrooms, constructed with environmental conservation in mind, and the school is set in grounds of 33,000 m2, with excellent connections to surrounding areas. The school buildings are modern, bright and spacious, and have been carefully designed to meet each pupil’s educational and social needs, both in terms of academic performance and extracurricular activities. Our students have access to ICT rooms, science labs, two libraries, a rock studio, a ballet studio, recreational and wooded areas, nature classrooms, a psychomotor skills suite, a 2,000 m2 sports centre, basketball and tennis courts, and a multi-purpose artificial grass pitch for rugby, football, cricket and hockey.
