Values education at Coruña British International School

At Coruña British International School we are committed to building a fairer, more responsible, egalitarian and sustainable society, just like other Globeducate schools around the world. For this reason, education in values is a priority in our educational programme.

At the British and International School in A Zapateira (A Coruña) we are committed to the excellence of our students in the broadest sense of the word. We are convinced that every pupil has the potential to make this world a better place, so, as well as providing them with knowledge through a comprehensive curriculum, we equip them with the necessary mechanisms and tools to become ethical, empathetic, responsible, caring, critical, respectful and committed to their local and global environment.

The House System

The House system is a common feature of the British education system and a tool for educating in values, helping to build community spirit, developing a sense of identity and belonging, and celebrating achievements, both their own and those of others. It is also an opportunity to develop leadership skills and an ideal vehicle for connecting pupils of all ages, giving them the chance to get to know each other outside the traditional classroom environment, generating connections and bonds between pupils of different ages.

At Coruña British International School students and teachers are linked to the same House all  through their school life, so the feeling of belonging to their House is deeply rooted. Students can earn House points for good behaviour, community service or for participating in team activities, which will be passed on to all students linked to that House. 

At Coruña British International School the four Houses are named after prestigious British universities: Oxford, Durham, York and Cambridge. Each one of them is linked to a charity, thus creating four working teams focused on the following areas, whose aim is to raise awareness of their work amongst the pupils and organise collections to provide them with the resources they need throughout the school year, thus giving life to the charity campaign 4 Houses, 4 Causes.

  • Help for the Environment: We Sustainability
  • Local Aid: Food bank Rias Altas A Coruña
  • Emergency Aid: Aldeas Infantiles
  • Help in the fight against Cancer or Rare Diseases: Fundación Aladina

Sponsorships programme

At Coruña British International School we believe that sport is a priority for a complete education. It improves school performance and the growth of young people, promotes healthy lifestyle habits, aids socialisation and encourages fundamental values and behaviours such as teamwork, respect, healthy competition and companionship. 

We are very proud to have a sports sponsorship programme that reinforces both our vision of global values education and our commitment to sport as a cornerstone in the integral development of children, as well as with those clubs that promote grassroots sport.
