The English National Curriculum and IB Diploma are taught by qualified, British-trained teachers with the exception of some of our language teachers. Those who deliver the Spanish language, Spanish validation, and Bachillerato courses are qualified, native Spanish teachers.

As an English-speaking British school, our students receive full English language immersion from Baby Education and Day Care to Year 13 to ensure native-level fluency. Spanish is taught across all year groups.

We are committed to preparing children for opportunities across the globe by delivering French and German classes from Year 5 to the IGCSE, GCE A Level, and the IB Diploma stages. Chinese is also available as an optional language course for senior students.

As a British school, we aim to ensure that all children receive excellent support to become fluent in English. Our British-qualified teachers develop students' language skills across the England and Wales national curriculum so that they develop into confident bilinguals.

All students learn Spanish to a native level. Spanish pupils must take a minimum number of Spanish classes per week; the frequency and number of lessons depends on their age. Non-Spanish speakers will learn Spanish as a foreign language throughout their education.

We accept children with no English between 16 weeks and 4 years old. To understand the individual needs of each child, from age 5/6 (Year 1) upwards, their English level may be assessed during the admissions process.

We offer a unique Induction English course for non-English speaking students who gain admission to the school based on their academic ability. This specialist course is for primary and secondary students aged between 5 and 16. It offers intensive English classes in small groups and individual support in mainstream lessons.

Our graduates enter universities all over the world. In the past, the majority of our ex-students have entered British universities and a considerable number have been admitted to top institutions such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College and LSE. Other prestigious universities attended by our alumni include Durham, St. Andrew’s, Edinburgh, Manchester, and numerous colleges belonging to the University of London.

Some of our past students have preferred to attend Spanish universities (UAM, Complutense, Carlos III, etc.), and many others have decided to continue their higher education in other parts of the world and have gained entry to universities in the USA (Boston College, Harvard, MIT, New York, Princeton and Rutgers), Canada (McGill, Dalhousie, University of Toronto and Waterloo), France (Sorbonne) and Japan (Aoyama, ICU, Keio, Sofia, Tokio, Tsukubu and Waseda), as well as in Australia, Chile, Korea, Turkey, Venezuela, etc.

Our pupils are used to welcoming newcomers and are friendly and helpful. The Heads of Departments make sure that “buddies” are always on hand to show newcomers the ropes when they first join the school. However, much depends on the attitude of the new pupil and how willing he/she is to make new friends and participate as part of the student community.

We offer (I)GCSEs (Cambridge), GCE A-levels (Edexcel) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. We also offer Spanish university entrance examinations.

Currently, 1300 pupils are enrolled at the school. Our students represent 60 different nationalities.

School starts at 9.15 am and ends at 4.35 pm.

The amount of homework given to each child depends on their age. As a general rule, in the Infant Department, no homework is set, but pupils are expected to take reading books home to share with their parents. In the Junior Department, from Year 3 onwards pupils use a homework diary to note down any homework tasks they need to complete.

Depending on their age, they are expected to complete between 1.5 hours and 3 hours of homework per week. In Year 3, children complete 1.5 hours of homework per week. In Year 6, they are expected to complete half an hour of homework per day, plus written work at weekends. In addition to this, students are encouraged to read in both English and Spanish on a daily basis.

In the Secondary Department, pupils are regularly set purposeful, relevant homework tasks. In Years 7, 8 and 9 the time allocated varies from one hour per night to one and a half hours, with four homework assignments at the weekend.

In Years 10 and 11 students receive approximately 2 hours of homework per night in addition to assignments on the weekends.

English is the language of instruction in the classroom, and our British-qualified teachers offer first-class English tuition across each academic stage.

Pupils speak both English and Spanish in the playground, and this is helpful for new children who join the school as it encourages them to strengthen their skills in both languages very quickly. Students gain excellent language support to become bilingual.

Set on 12 hectares with world-class facilities, the school offers over 40 extracurricular activities, including a wide range of rewarding sporting activities that can help students elevate their skills to an advanced level. Our past students have competed in the Olympic Games and many have secured sports scholarships at world-leading universities.

We offer:

  • swimming (25-metre, indoor-heated swimming pool)
  • football (11 and 5-a-side pitches)
  • basketball
  • volleyball
  • hockey
  • tennis
  • gymnastics
  • athletics
  • cross-country
  • rugby

Optional sports tuition is available during the school day (usually at lunchtime), and includes horse riding, ballet, and judo.

Yes, we can enrol students for a single term and often accept exchange students from other Inspired schools worldwide. However, for specific courses, the minimum length of enrolment is 1-2 full academic years. This is true of the GCSE courses in Years 10 & 11 and the A Level and IB Diploma courses in Years 12 and 13, which are 2-year programmes.

Our Infant School in Chamartín is a purpose-built Infant School for 200 pupils between the ages of 18 months and 7 years (Pre-Nursery to Year 2). At the age of 7 (Year 3), children transfer to the main school in Soto de Viñuelas or they attend the campus at La Moraleja. The La Moraleja campus caters for 800 pupils between the ages of 2 and 16 (Pre-Nursery to Year 11). In Year 12, pupils transfer to the Soto de Viñuelas campus. All schools follow the same curriculum.
