Simon Manley, UK ambassador in Spain with two Hastings School pupils

Year 12 pupils go to the British university fair and greet Simon Manley, the UK ambassador in Spain

Last week, nearly 50 students in year 12 attended the main annual British Universities Fair organized by the British Council in Madrid.

Our students spent two hours speaking to admissions tutors of more than 40 British universities and institutes of higher education to find out about their course options, requirements to be accepted onto a place, what universities are looking for, to talk about university life in the U.K. and to become aware of the immense range of possibilities open to them.

They came away laden with bags of catalogues and prospectuses and above all enthusiasm and excitement as they move towards the next big chapter in their lives.

No wonder that, altough our pupils have the possibility to study at a university  in Spain, every year a high percentage of our pupils choose to study abroad.
