The British School of Almería was founded in September 2007 to meet the changing needs of a rapidly growing local community and to provide parents with the unique opportunity to be able to choose an authentic British education without needing to leave the beautiful province of Almeria.
Stages of our school
During the last twelve years we have continued to grow and develop as a school and have been proud to see how our pupils have achieved success at universities in Spain, the United Kingdom and in a range of other countries around the world. Today, we are still the only all-through British school in the province and we continue to work hard to offer a high-quality education to pupils of all ages from 3-18 years.
In June 2018, our school became part of the UK based educational group, International Schools Partnership. This worldwide organization is committed to providing students in all its schools with an unparalleled learning experience, thus making us one of the best international reference schools in Almería. Likewise, the organization fully supports and shares the philosophy of our school, which consists of helping each and every one of the students to reach their full potential, offering opportunities that will allow them to go beyond their own expectations.
Objectives of our school
At The British School of Almería, our aim is to inspire young minds and instill a real passion for learning amongst our pupils. Our dedicated team of native teachers work together to provide a creative, challenging and broad curriculum which motivates pupils to become independent learners and critical thinkers, keen to develop their knowledge both inside and outside of the classroom.
As well as striving for academic excellence, we also place a great deal of importance on the personal, moral and social development of our pupils. Through the promotion of our key values, we actively encourage our pupils to reflect upon their own role and responsibilities, not only as key members of our school community but also as open-minded global citizens who have an important part to play in the shaping of our world’s future.
What ages does our school welcome?
Our school welcomes students from 3 to 18 years old. We are a British school authorized by the state government and by the prestigious Association of British Schools in Spain (NABSS). We are very proud to have recently become part of the International Schools Partnership, a prestigious group of international schools.
What are we proud of at British School Almería?
Over the last ten years we have earned a great reputation for the high standard of our education. We are fully committed to constant improvement, and to raising the quality of our teaching. Our students are happy and highly motivated. We support each of our students, including those experiencing difficulty, and those with exceptional talent.
We want our students to learn efficiently, through reasoning, feelings and actions. They learn to analyze, solve problems, think creatively, and use their imaginations. Finally, we also want them to have a solid emotional education, to learn to explore and understand their feelings and those of others. In this way, our students will be fully prepared for the demands and complexity of modern life.
