SEK-El Castillo School is a privileged place for coexistence and learning in the broadest sense of the word. The High Artistic Performance (School of Music and Dance), the Artistic Baccalaureate, the different sports schools (we are the academic partner of important clubs such as Real Madrid), the increasing specialisation of our High Performance Sports programme 'SEK International Sports Academy' or the enrichment projects between the school and the Camilo José Cela University, are some examples of this. We have been authorised as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for over 40 years. Currently our students can take the IB Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma programmes in English or through an English-Spanish bilingual syllabus, with outstanding examination results. We are also accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) with a process of quality assurance: the ACE Learning protocol.

We believe that the way we learn has changed forever. As a result, SEK Future Learning Model is presented as a new opportunity to learn from new methodological formats, based on the Smart Classroom system, the use of new tools and the interaction between the different members of the educational community, offering enriched programmes such as the "Aula de Padres".

We boast first-rate sports facilities on campus and offer international boarders a professionally staffed, nurturing and safe environment. We provide linguistic immersion programmes in both our languages of instruction to ensure access to the curriculum for all our students. In addition, as part of our commitment to talent development, we offer a high-performance sports programme: SEK International Sports Academy. This programme allows athletes to combine their academic studies with their training and competing schedules. Students on this programme can take advantage of our boarding facilities to enhance their time management. As part of our provision to develop engaged and active young adults, we offer students the opportunity to participate in the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh International Award.

In all SEK International Schools we are able to offer a quality online learning model in which students are able to continue their learning if necessary, with synchronous and asynchronous classes, and with personalized monitoring by teachers and tutors, which has proved successful with students and families.
