At Coruña British School our goal is to prepare our students to live successfully within today’s global community, and Educational Excellence plays a key part in achieving this end. Our teachers undergo continual professional training in order to ensure that they have access to the most appropriate teaching techniques and strategies conceived to bring out the best in each student, give them the specific help and guidance that they need, identify their strengths and weaknesses and help them to achieve their maximum personal and academic potential.
We work hard with all our students, including the youngest members of our school community, to educate ethical young people with good study habits and well developed cognitive, communicative, creative, physical and social skills. Ultimately we will offer a full and balanced curriculum designed to provide an all-round education, all the way through from Early Years to Pre-University. Our curriculum is dynamic and innovative, based on proven educational theory and practice, and is delivered by hard-working, well-qualified and enthusiastic professionals. We have excellent support staff, including an Educational Psychology Department, specialising in child development and special educational needs, ready to offer support to students, teachers and families where necessary. Every day, our challenge and our privilege is to provide our students with the best education possible for a happy and successful future.
