Spanish Primary & Secondary School
317 Portobello Road, London W10 5SZ
The Spanish School is governed by the Evaluation system established by Spanish legislation. According to this, the students' learning is valuated continuously throughout the course. In this evaluation, not only is the learning of theoretic and practical knowledge taken into account, but also the acquirement of certain habits and attitudes (work and study, in respect to others, etc.). Teachers collect information on students progress through observation in the classroom, daily tasks, homework and especially, in secondary level, through periodic exams.
At the end of each term, the teachers of each class, reunite in an "Evaluation Session", where they decide which grade each student has achieved. The tutor makes an evaluation report which is sent to the parents a few days before the christmas, easter and summer holidays. Qualifications, tutor,teacher coments, student's behaviour and/or other relevant aspects all appear in the report.
At present, the school follows the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports' norms which regulate the education act outside of Spain. It is an integrated Institute for Primary, Secondary and Bachalaureate Education. It's curriculum is bilingual and the qualifications are academically recognised by countries within the EU.
Because our school is not integrated in the British educational system, its results do not appear in the official League Tables of British schools that are published each year.
However, statistics referred to students' of 2nd year Bachalaureate, demonstrate the high level of education that is offered.
Our School has a record of 100% pass mark for ACCESS TO UNIVERSITY TESTS in the last five years.
Many ex-students who have opted to continue studying in British Universities, have been able to choose Universities of high calibre, (i.e., Imperial College, Kings College, London School of Economics...).
