British Secondary School in Madrid

Teaching values to our students is more important today than ever. As educators and parents, we are students’ greatest influence and it is our responsibility to teach them to be people with values so that they can grow up to be loving, respectful and confident adults.

In Secondary, students follow the British National Curriculum while continuing with the compulsory subjects of Spanish Language and Literature and Social Studies. Secondary school is divided into two cycles, Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. The subjects are taught by teachers specialised in each subject.

In Key Stage 3 – Year 7 and Year 8 (from 11 to 13  years), students continue with the same subjects from the curriculum that are the basis on which to build their future academic studies. In Year 7, equivalent to Primary 6, we introduce French or German as a foreign language.

In Key Stage 4 – Year 9, Year 10 and Year 11 (from 13 to 16 years old) students are prepared for IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education).

During this stage, they choose to study a selection of complementary (optional) subjects. A wide variety of options are offered:

  • Business Studies
  • Art and Design
  • Information Communication Technology (ICT)
  • Physical Education
  • History
  • Geography

In addition, the PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) program is expanded.

In Secondary, we help our students to take responsibility for their studies, to be disciplined with their work and to make contributions to the community. We create an environment in which the student can develop as a student and as a person and in which they can reach their full potential.

Exams and Degrees

St. George’s students prepare for the IGCSE exams when they complete their Secondary and the IB Diploma during the Sixth Form stage. These tests are recognised all over the world and allow you to study at any foreign or spanish university. Our school is an examination centre authorised by Cambridge, among others, to carry out these tests.

In addition, the school is periodically inspected to ensure that it meets the requirements to be a British College and is authorised by regional authorities and certified by the British Council. Students can automatically accredit and validate their studies in Spain when they successfully complete the Key Stage 4 and Sixth Form stages.


The admissions process remains open all year. Due to the new circumstances, we will contact you through email, telephone or video conferencing and answer any questions you may have on your search for the best school for your children.
