We warmly welcome you to O Castro British School. As a school we focus on creating a caring and supportive learning environment where every child is encouraged to achieve their full academic and personal potential and to develop into mature, responsible and compassionate human beings.
We are committed to providing all our students with the best possible education, focusing on the personal and academic needs of each individual and constantly striving for excellence. The school provides a safe and stimulating learning environment, developing lively, inquisitive minds and promoting a lifelong thirst for knowledge. We value the individual qualities and attributes of every child under our care, tailoring their educational programme to maximise their learning potential.
We believe that the all-round education of any child requires close collaboration between the school, the student and the student’s family. Our mission is to work together to enable each child to maximise their potential and to instil a passion for learning that goes beyond the confines of the classroom.
O Castro British School is a British private school located outside the UK delivering the British National Curriculum of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We are certified by the Spanish Ministry of Education, the National Association of British Schools in Spain (NABSS), the British Council and the Cambridge Schools certification board.
We believe that the British National Curriculum offers our students a significant educational advantage. The British system is recognised as one of the foremost educational systems in the world, offering an outstanding academic education combined with an integrated personal development programme. The qualifications obtained at the end of each educational stage, General Certificate of Secondary Education and A-Level, are extremely highly regarded and are accepted as entry qualifications by the world’s top universities.
Our teaching team consists of extremely well-qualified and experienced professionals, who are passionate about their subjects and about the progress of their students, and who are skilled at helping pupils to develop intellectual curiosity and the multitude of skills necessary for academic and personal success. It is a privilege to work with such a dedicated team, whose principal focus every day is to provide the enthusiasm, guidance, knowledge and motivation necessary to enable our students to achieve their full potential.
In a world that is changing so rapidly, our students need insight and understanding in order to be able to confidently assess and evaluate the information with which they are bombarded. Our expectations are high and we encourage each child to work hard to achieve the best qualifications of which they are capable, and to acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding that they will need for further academic study and on into their adult lives. Not only do we want our students to achieve academically, but also to have the confidence and enthusiasm to embrace the personal, social and professional opportunities and challenges that they will encounter on their life journey.
This year we celebrate O Castro British School’s 10th anniversary and we are extremely proud of our reputation as a school that, not only achieves excellent academic results, but where students, staff and families form part of a happy, caring and committed educational community.
