Welcome from the Head of Secondary

As the Head of Secondary, I am proud to welcome you to the Secondary Department of the British School of Málaga.

Secondary education at the British School of Málaga starts in Year 7 when students are 11 years old. They spend three years in Key Stage 3 where they start new subjects like science and modern languages, while continuing with “Lengua” and “Sociales” from the Spanish Curriculum. They then start their IGCSE courses, which last 2 years, in Year 10 before moving on to A-Levels. Students at our school complete their education with both Spanish and English qualifications: IGCSEs, ESO, A-Levels and Bachillerato, providing them with the opportunity to study and work all over the world.

We are immensely proud of what our students achieve. Having said that, life here at the British School of Málaga is about much more than exam results. We want to ensure that our students become well-rounded individuals by giving them opportunities to develop in line with our 8 core values of Aspiration, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, Independence, Leadership, Reflection and Resilience. These qualities are developed both in lessons and on the basis of our broad Extra-Curricular programme. We offer a range of leadership opportunities from the chance to become House Captain of one of our four School Houses (Earth, Fire, Water and Wind) to reading with Primary school students.

Amazing things are happening. Why not arrange a visit so that you can see for yourself?
