Language requirements

Pupils with no/little prior knowledge of English or Spanish are eligible to apply. The Admissions Board will deal with every application case by case.

A work plan with some recommendations for the family will be presented at this stage so that, the pupil can improve his/her language skills before the start of the academic year. All students receive personalized teachers’ guidance and support from the very beginning at our school in accordance with their learning needs.

All pupils applying for entry to MYP should preferably have a good level of English and Spanish (around A2 for MYP 1&2 and B1 for MYP 3&4) although no official language qualifications are required.

All pupils applying for entry to DP should have a B2 level of English although no official language qualifications are required.

Applicants based in Spain may be admitted to the residence hall from MYP 1 onwards as weekly boarders (from Monday to Friday).

International students can only apply for a place at our residence from MYP 3 onwards under full board basis (including Weekends).

Under normal circumstances all prospective boarders are expected to visit the premises before the start of the academic year.

The Admissions office will offer advice to families, but it is the responsibility of parents of all non- EU boarders to obtain all the necessary immigration and residence documentation (e.g. power of attorney and ID documents). The Admissions Office must receive copies of such documents by the end of term prior to their child joining our Boarding House.
