At O Castro British School, we provide our students with a unique preparation for a truly global future and, along with other members of the NACE Group, our students are invited to participate in a wide range of international events organised by NACE. Pupils get the opportunity to participate in events that provide unique learning experiences, helping them to develop the skills, confidence and understanding necessary to enable them to take their place within the global community.
These international gatherings help our students to take a more open view of the world and stimulate an international connection that represents the first step on a path to future academic and professional mobility. Students get to practise and perfect their linguistic fluency, to embrace a broader understanding of current global issues and to relate more confidently to children and adults from other countries and cultures. The NACE international events programme provides our students with a truly unique and enriching learning experience.
