We offer a challenging academic curriculum
that is both interesting and fun.
And we do it while fostering acceptance and respect.
At Escola Global, we offer students a constructive approach to education. Students drive this process, while our teachers serve as guides along the way- they provide the materials and support necessary for this learning to develop successfully.
Educational peers within the classroom plan, organize and develop different activities using multiple methodological approaches in order to cover the contents of both the English and Spanish curricula.
This teaching system provides multiple benefits for our students: we achieve interactive, individualized, multidisciplinary, playful and creative learning.
The learning is based on the needs of the children, created by them.
Nursery, Reception 1 & 2
At this stage, learning is intimately linked to spontaneous play. It's also crucial to allow for manipulation and experimentation in the immediate environment, which lets the child develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally.
Each student has a different learning rhythm, so our activities are prepared and planned considering the needs and motivations of our children.
We always strive for complete and balanced social-emotional development through the experiences and situations that the teacher facilitates for the children.
Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 (KS2) are years in which our children build new learning through experience and prior knowledge.
Throughout primary school, children are in continuous contact with nature, and part of the learning takes place outside the classroom.
We focus on experimentation, manipulation, and "learning by doing".
In KS2, lessons are strategically planned by our teachers to ensure that project-based learning is at the core of the curriculum, encouraging children to "think outside the box" and develop critical skills for personal, academic and social success.
KS3 constitutes the foundation years of Secondary Education, and is the transition phase between the Primary and the Secondary stages, encompassing the courses of Y7-Y8-Y9.
During this phase, PBL (Project Based Learning), remains a cornerstone of our curriculum and is designed to strengthen the links between languages, mathematics, science, ICT, as well as to develop the student's critical thinking.
We also emphasize the mandatory subjects of the English and Spanish curriculums (languages, mathematics and science) The creative arts and humanities, known as the ‘Foundation Subjects’ in the English National Curriculum are critical at this stage, as well.
It is through this broad and balanced curriculum that our students are able to explore their personal interests as well as their talents.
At the end of KS3, in Y9, some of our students are ready to take second language IGCSE examinations in German and Spanish, whilst a few are ready to take IGCSE core mathematics, too.
KS4 is the two year IGCSE course in Years 10 and 11 of Secondary Education.
In this important 2nd phase we create pathways that allow our students to achieve academic success.
We understand that students have different rates of learning and also different talents and abilities, so we offer different academic options from KS4. These options are decided individually with guidance from parents and teachers.
All students follow the Cambridge IGCSE core curriculum: English Language, English Literature, Mathematics, Coordinated Science (IGCSE Double Exam) and Spanish.
In addition, students choose 3 optional IGCSE subjects from the following: Geography, History, Enterprise, French, German, Art, Music and Physical Education.
Escola Global offers both the Spanish and English education systems. This allows non-Spanish students to choose between following both systems or to choose only the English system at the beginning of KS4.
If they opt for the Spanish curriculum, Catalan Language and Sociales subjects are included.
Those students who opt for the English option will take an additional IGCSE, Global Perspectives. Some of our students can achieve 10 or 11 IGCSE subjects as a result.
Most students can also achieve the Cambridge ICE group award, which is similar to a High School Diploma, and is widely recognised in the USA and South America.
