Why do we at Coruña British International School teach our pupils to think critically and why should you continue to do so at home?
Excellence in British Education at Coruña British International School
The School follows the English National Curriculum and is fully accredited by the Galician government. This unique combination means we can offer a fully bilingual education from the age of three.
The British education system is world-renowned for its quality and emphasis on a values-based education. Students learn by doing, getting involved in projects and experiments that put theory into practice.
We tailor our teaching methods to the abilities of each student, making sure that every child thrives, no matter where they are in their learning journey. In this way, each child can achieve his or her full potential.
Students as individuals
Educational achievement is key to our philosophy, but we think beyond pure academic success. The British education system encourages students to explore the world around them, be curious about how things work, ask questions, apply critical thinking skills, and respect fellow students and teachers alike. Teamwork and communication skills form a key foundation to all our educational programmes. Additionally, all students are encouraged to become socially, ethically and environmentally aware.
We aim to prepare students for life after school, teaching them skills that will help them to succeed in secondary school, further education and the workplace. Learning experiences also take place outside the classroom; assemblies, cultural events and fun educational trips provide further opportunities to learn and develop.
Beyond the classroom
Life at Coruña British International School is not always about lessons. We have a full programme of extracurricular activities that enrich the daily lives of our students, including cultural trips, sport, music and academic activities. In addition, we partner with other Globeducate schools to offer international exchanges and take part in inter-school events with Globeducuate schools from around the world.
Excellence does not only mean academic achievement.
Why do children and adults need boredom in their daily lives? Like any other emotion, yes, it is necessary, and we should learn to be bored much more. And we should also teach children to be bored.
To teach a foreign language you have to create an environment in which the linguistic immersion is similar to that of the native language. This is possible even if parents are not fluent in English by choosing a British school.
