Coruña British International School is a private, secular, independent school in A Coruña. We follow the English National Curriculum while meeting all Spanish schooling requirements. We are approved and accredited by both the Galician government and the British Council. Coruña British International School belongs to Globeducate British International Schools and has been part of the Globeducate prestigious network since 2017.
The education we offer our students is high quality and individualised, with dedicated attention for each student. We aim to develop each child’s full academic and personal potential and encourage our students to be curious, creative, self-disciplined and independent.
Our school currently offers classes from Early Years up to Year 8 (equivalent to the Spanish ESO 1). We are progressively adding a new cohort each year until we offer the full range of schooling, from ages 3 to 18.
The school is located in the beautiful city of A Coruña, 10 minutes from the city centre with easy access by car. The school buildings and facilities are modern and designed with children in mind. In September 2023, the school is moving to its new, purpose-built campus in Culleredo to enable us to continue to provide the best facilities as the school grows.
Students as individuals
Educational achievement is key to our philosophy, but we think beyond pure academic success. The English National Curriculum encourages students to explore the world around them, be curious about how things work, ask questions, apply critical thinking skills, and respect fellow students and teachers alike. Teamwork and communication skills form a key foundation to all our educational programmes. Additionally, all students are encouraged to become socially, ethically and environmentally aware.
We aim to prepare students for life after school, teaching them skills that will help them to succeed in secondary school, further education and the workplace. Learning experiences also take place outside the classroom; assemblies, cultural events and fun educational trips provide further opportunities to learn and develop.
More than just a school
Life at Coruña British International School is not always about lessons. We have more than 30 extra-curricular activities to choose, exchanges and a full programme of international events with other Globeducate schools. We also encourage Outdoor Learning and rely on a House System to foster collaboration between pupils of different ages, team spirit, leadership skills and a sense of pride in belonging to a strong and committed community.
