About the International School


Welcome message from Head Teacher


At San Patricio Toledo, we believe school life is important in itself, not simply to prepare a child for something in the future. Every day of your son or daughters school life is important and should be looked forward to with genuine excitement and expectation.


In our community, it is essential that we know your child and your child feels known and cared for. We identify and meet the varying needs of each individual. That is what makes us special, as well as our excellent facilities, our beautiful campus and our ideal location in the world heritage city of Toledo.


Come and see for yourself a school that is 20 minutes by express train from Madrid , lying in the beautiful Spanish countryside. Appreciate the full value of what we offer. We are most proud of the fact that our graduates are good citizens, who are equipped to flourish in, and make a positive contribution to, the world that awaits them.


I hope to welcome you to the school
