Welcome to Madrid
Situated at a height of 650 metres above sea level in the centre of mainland Spain, Madrid is the political, financial and cultural heart of Spain as well as the highest capital city in Europe. It is estimated that Madrid attracts around 75% of all foreign investment destined to the country.
Madrid is a city that has a lot to offer its residents, from culture, art and wonderful historic buildings, to a vibrant nightlife, great restaurants, shopping and a wealth of green space.
The children will adore the city. There are enough theme parks, zoos and excursions to keep them occupied for weeks. There really is something for everybody.
Advantages of an International British School
Choosing a British school offers the possibility to achieve the official qualifications from the British education system which are recognised around the world. A curriculum as international as the British one also facilitates future changes to educational centres in other countries if and when necessary.
Our study plan follows the British national curriculum and incorporates the minimum requirements of the Spanish national curriculum so our pupils can attend the best international universities both in Spain and the UK, or anywhere around the world.
We understand that moving to another country can be a complex matter, especially when all the family are involved. However, Hastings has a high percentage of international families who have recently lived this experience and the whole school community can help you in this process.
