A-Level Education in Madrid

Our A-level course in Madrid, Tres Cantos, is delivered to 16-18-year-olds, each of whom is supported in every aspect of their learning. We aim to ensure that all our students benefit from a robust 2-year A-level (Advanced Level) curriculum that offers an internationally recognised route to top universities worldwide.

A-levels are considered the ‘Gold Standard’ of UK-accredited Secondary School qualifications, and many leading universities favour A-level graduates who obtain good grades on this challenging course. Throughout their education, A-level students are guided by dedicated and passionate teachers. Prior to starting the A-level course, candidates must select a combination of 3-4 A-level subjects, giving them the freedom to focus on their key strengths and interests in a fully personalised programme.

As long-standing providers of A-level education, we aim to ensure that the young people enroled in the A-level curriculum gain a rewarding learning experience that goes above and beyond high-quality British education. Therefore, our A-level programme provides much more than an exemplary curriculum; our students grow into aspiring young leaders by participating in outstanding international experiences, tailored pastoral and career support, and engaging lessons in state-of-the-art facilities. We are dedicated to helping our A-level pupils achieve their dreams, excel in their chosen areas of interest, and gain admission to their first-choice university.

Benefits of A-Level Study

The A-level pathway is one of the most well-recognised and respected pre-university programmes as it prepares students for the rigours of university-level education. The King's College Soto A-level course has been a gateway for many past students who wish to secure admission to a college or university at home or abroad, and our school provides the support students need to attain excellent results.

A-level study demonstrates to employers that candidates possess the skills required for the workplace as the course not only delivers up-to-date subject knowledge, but the study skills needed to apply existing knowledge to a different context.

We are British-qualified A-level educators and aim to ensure senior students choose the subjects that evoke interest as the course material is covered in depth. The A-level curriculum is challenging and is designed to give students a solid foundation in specific academic disciplines.
