O Castro British International School is a proud member of Globeducate and shares the group´s commitment to addressing the United Nations sustainable development goals.
Excellence in British Education
Globeducate British International Schools follow the English National Curriculum, with some schools offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme at Sixth Form level, a broad and balanced educational programme, taught in English.
Students receive personalised attention in order to help them access every part of the curriculum and to maximise their educational potential.
The British education system is recognised and respected throughout the world for its quality. Teaching methods are differentiated to guarantee progress for every student and regular evaluation enables teachers to identify individual areas of strength and weakness and to adapt the student’s learning programme accordingly. The curriculum is carefully conceived to support, guide and educate every child, helping them to achieve their full academic and personal potential.
Encouraging independent thinking
Educational excellence is a key element of the British system and this ideal extends beyond purely academic achievement.
The English National Curriculum encourages young people to interact with and explore the world around them, to think independently and form their own points of view, and to respect and communicate intelligently with others. Our goal is for our students to become socially responsible individuals. These values are also key to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme which some of our schools offer at Sixth Form.
In our schools we provide an inclusive education based upon our fundamental view that diversity should be celebrated, and that every child has a right for their individual educational needs to be met. We understand that many children experience difficulties at different times throughout their lives and we make every effort to ensure that we provide the right sort of help at the right time. Our SEN Departments and Student Guidance Services are available to all of our students and their families whenever they are needed.
The British education system is recognised and respected for its quality.
British education system is synonymous with international prestige thanks to its quality of education and, above all, for the way it enhances the skills of its students. This is one of the main keys that distinguishes British educated students in their professional future.
