St. George's British International School is a private school in Bilbao. St. George's British International School belongs to Globeducate British International Schools and has been part of the Globeducate prestigious network since 2017. We prepare our students for the world of tomorrow, today, throughout a multilingual education from the age of 2, combining innovative methodologies and personalised attention to ensure that every one of our students reaches their full potential. Our students develop into well-rounded, socially responsible citizens with respect for one another. Music, sport, creative arts and technology form an integral part of the curriculum.
Academic excellence since 1956
With a long heritage of education spanning more than half a century, the school has an educational philosophy based on four pillars, around which its ambitious and stimulating curriculum is structured: Enrich, Challenge, Shape and Achieve. St. George's British International has it clear: its educational project aims to enrich and challenge its students, so that each and every one of them can achieve success in their own way, and do their bit to shape the future, to change the world.
At St. George's, English is the main language for teaching and learning and we will soon offer the prestigious English National Curriculum from Early Years until graduation from secondary school. We are accredited by both the British Council and the Basque Government.
We are proud to be a part of Globeducate, which operates more than 55 schools worldwide. This international network provides our students with unique opportunities to interact with students from a wide range of cultures and nationalities.
A progressive adaptation to the English National Curriculum
At present our students follow the English National Curriculum from Pre-Nursery Class to Year 9 before switching over to the Spanish system. Since September 2021 we are gradually expanding the curriculum year by year until the entire school cohort is following the English National Curriculum, eventually studying for IGCSE and A-Level exams. This gradual transition will be completed by 2025.
Beyond the classes
We promote Outdoor Learning and the traditional House System to foster collaboration between students of different ages, team spirit, leadership skills and reinforce the sense of belonging to a community.
