About us

About us

We teach the British school curriculum, but with a twist. We utilise our small-class environment to prepare students for their British  A-level qualifications, while also promoting a real love of learning.

Who we are?

Full-time educational programme

We are an international team of highly qualified and passionate teachers. After opening a successful tutoring centre here in Barcelona, we received request after request from both students and parents to open a full-time educational programme. We realised that our learners just loved being in the classrooms at the centre and so we decided to channel our skills and commitment to quality education into an exciting new programme for students in their final two years of school.

We teach the British school curriculum, but with a twist. We utilise our small-class environment to prepare students for their British A-level qualifications, while also promoting a real love of learning. We are committed to fostering a nurturing and student-centred environment, in which all students feel valued and challenged to be critical thinkers, life-long learners and empowered to make decisions about their futures.

What makes us different?

What makes us different?

We put our learners at the heart of everything we do

Our expert team has teaching experience from across the world, including Australia, the US, the UK, Spain, Peru and Argentina. We believe that none of these education systems truly meet the holistic needs of our young people, which is why we’ve cherry picked the best elements of each system, to design our unique educational programme.

We put our learners at the heart of everything we do. Our small-class size (of nine or fewer students) allows us to collaborate uniquely with each learner and ensure they are challenged and supported appropriately. We have high expectations for our learners and their academic success, but we also value the individual child. This ethos stems directly from our various first hand experiences of seeing how children can get lost in a big school environment.

Our program and class size also allow us to adapt the curriculum to students’ unique needs. Throughout the year, for example, we tailor our timetable to put on extra support or extension classes in certain subjects, as required. We also have the flexibility to adapt the curriculum around our students’ interests. Our debate and coding classes, for example, were launched after several students demonstrated their enthusiasm for these topics.
