Kensington, Your British School is a co-educational school from 18 months to 18 years. Our pupils study from their first day in a British school with native teachers, following the same educational system as any child in the United Kingdom.
We aim to offer our students an excellent human and academic education, so that they leave our school as fine young men and women, fluent in English, Spanish and French with internationally-recognised qualifications and results which open the doors to any Spanish or international university. Supported in their path through the school by a personal, holistic approach to education, our children learn critical thinking, how to live and work together on their way to becoming happy, well-rounded adults.
Pupils at Kensington achieve outstanding results in external examinations [IGCSE, Cambridge, DELF and EvAU] thanks to our system of careful individual tracking of student achievement. Individual needs are met: whether they are experiencing difficulties, or whether they excel. Class teachers and tutors, the support teachers, the small groups, the concept of 'differentiation' of the British curriculum and the guidance department are key elements in a strong support system.
More than a school: Our tradition in Music, Art and Drama, our focus on languages and our love for sport are reflected in our clubs. They go beyond extra-curricular activities. The clubs are part of our DNA. Children feel responsible for getting the most out of the skill that brings them together with other pupils, they create personal bonds founded on shared interests and common projects: Music and movement, Ballet, Judo, Cookery Class, Green Activity Club, Computing Club, Creative Writing Club, Art Club, Chinese, Piano, Ukulele Club, Chess, French, Drama, Computer, Debating Club, Journalism Workshop, Public Speaking… Every pupil, regardless of their academic level, has the chance to shine in ways which will boost their self-confidence and social skills.
