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 private school delivering the British National Curriculum. 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 (at the end of Year 11) and A-Level (at the end of Year 13), are extremely highly regarded and are welcomed as entry qualifications by the world’s top universities.
Our teaching team consists of qualified and experienced professionals, passionate about their areas of expertise as well as 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 team, and see how their enthusiasm, guidance, knowledge and motivation inspire our students to achieve.
In a world that is changing so rapidly, our students need insight and understanding in order to be able to assess and evaluate, with confidence, the information with which they are bombarded. Our expectations are high and we encourage each child to work hard to achieve the very best examination results possible and to acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding that they will need for further academic study and in their adult lives. In addition to their academic success we want the students of O Castro to leave us with the confidence and moral compass to navigate their own path through life´s opportunities and challenges.
O Castro British School is a place to be proud of, where children are happy and supported by a committed and hardworking body of staff, in and outside the classroom, to give of their best. Come and see for yourself; you will always be very welcome!
Mr. Paulo Durán
