Welcome to Colegio Hispano Británico. We welcome you to become a part of a great family, which consists of all those who have contributed to what we are today: a private school that is close, accessible and familiar. Our school awakens each morning with an eagerness to learn and improve. We instruct children in knowledge, core values, creativity and emotions. We nurture language learning, the development of technological skills and our students’ academic preparation. All of this is thanks to our school’s innovative vocation, by means of educational methods and tools, which has improved our students’ learning process.
Colegio Hispano Británico began its educational activity in 1975, opening its doors to its present-day facilities in 1978. Until 1992, Preschool Education and Enseñanza General Básica were taught. In response to the increasing demand, in 1992 the facilities were expanded to teach what was then known as B.U.P. y C.O.U. Since 2012, with the inclusion of the first stage of Preschool Education, a complete educational offer is available from ages 3 to 18. Today, Colegio Hispano Británico offers the following:     • Preschool Education     • Primary Education     • Secondary Education     • Baccalaureate The year 2018 marks the school’s 40th Anniversary, forty years full of life and many stories. We have changed with the times, adapting to the world in which we live and to the necessities of our children, but what has not changed is our commitment to our families.
Physical activity and sports are a fundamental pillar of student development, not only for its proven benefits but also for the values that can be associated with team sports. Healthy development should be completed with a balanced diet, therefore, we offer our own prepared meal services.
We are committed to respecting the environment and the historical and cultural heritage in the hopes of promoting attitudes and habits that achieve everyone’s participation within the educational community inside and outside of the school building.
Colegio Hispano Británico is open to the consistent evolution of our world. We have adopted new technologies as means to potentiate and facilitate learning processes, and we continually evaluate educational innovations in order to implement those that contribute to a better educational method in any aspect.
In consistency with the ideology and values of Colegio Hispano Británico, our pedagogical model is based on the concept of “education”: “Education is the process of socialization amongst individuals of a society. It can be perceived in a series of acquired abilities, attitudes, knowledge and values, causing a change in intellectual, social and emotional order.”
Our educational system gives way to learning as the main objective, instead of teaching. The teacher becomes an expert guide that provides the tools and information necessary for students to be submerged in a process of constant discovery. New concepts will be built upon the foundation of the student’s prior knowledge.
The objective is to achieve a significant and functional learning process, meaning that students acquire the tools that will allow them to resolve everyday problems efficiently, interrelate their knowledges and apply them to new situations, establish a clear relationship between what is learned and its significance and use.
We live in a society that places importance on the acquisition of key competencies in order to succeed. Innovation is one of the key constants. It is important to be aware of and understand the new educational tendencies: project learning, multiple intelligences, cooperative learning, projects based on competencies, problem solving, etc. The objective is that students acquire the knowledge and key competencies of the curriculum improving their school experience, creativity and happiness.
In relation to innovation, new technologies have acquired a more important role in the educational system of our school. Our Technological Itinerary provides technological training for students, while at the same time shows them how a combination of resources and tools facilitate learning processes. Our spaces including the Project Room and Smart Zone allow the student to be at the very center of their own learning.
Learning foreign languages is one of the pillars of our educational system. The objective is that students be able to master Spanish, English and French by the end of Baccalaureate, certifying their level through the Cambridge Exams and French Alliance. Our Trilingual Project helps the process of linguistic immersion that begins during the first stage of Preschool Education. French is taught from the first year of primary school onwards. Furthermore, we have developed a program of transversal projects for Primary, Secondary, and Baccalaureate so that students use both English and French to communicate in multiple contexts.
Families play a key role in the educational system of Colegio Hispano Británico, not only because of their decisive role in the education of their children but also for their participation in school life. For this reason, we define ourselves as an open and familiar centre, where parents can access the facilities and interact with teachers, staff, other parents and friends while contributing to the education and development of student’s emotional intelligence.
