In Spain, bilingual schools are those that have a high number of classes taught in English; however, most of them only offer between 6 to 10 hours a week of subjects in English.

In this sense, LAUDE Internacional Aravaca is considered to be a truly bilingual school because between 80% and 100% of our Early Years classes are in English.

A bilingual school should not be confused with a British school.
The latter are schools that follow the National British Curriculum and the qualification obtained is the official UK one.

LAUDE Internacional Aravaca has a bilingual focus, which means that a significant number of classes are taught in English, but it follows the Spanish curriculum.

This allows students to acquire a high level of English without preventing them attending a Spanish university later on.
In addition, we have implemented the IB methodology and we now offer the International Baccalaureate.

LAUDE International Aravaca belongs to the British international group ISP (International Schools Partnership).

100% of the classes for 2 to 3 year olds are taught in English.

80% of the classes for 4 year olds are taught in English.

70% of the classes for 5 year olds and Primary are taught in English.

In Secondary School, 40% of the classes are taught in English.

In the 1st year of Baccalaureate, PE and English are both taught in English.

From the 5th year of Primary, students have 2 hours of French. When they start ESO, they receive 3 classes per week of French or German.

We take children from the age of two.

No, our teachers and assistants take care of all the needs of our youngest students.

The school’s website has a uniform sales service and also offers the option of trying on clothes at the school by appointment with s.gaitan@ia.edu.es

Yes, food is prepared in the school kitchen. Our menus are carefully planned by the company ARAMARK to provide our students with a balanced and healthy diet.

Yes, students with allergies, intolerances or celiac disease who are required to follow a specific diet must notify us so we can offer them a menu adapted to their dietary needs.

Yes, the school offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities from the age of 3. These are listed in the EXTRA-CURRICULAR section of the website and they start in October.

Children are continuously in contact with new technology from the moment they enter our school. All classrooms have an interactive whiteboard and technology is fully integrated into the methodology of our school in each and every subject. From the 4th year of EPO, our students join the ONE TO ONE program where they have their own iPad.

2 and 3 year olds will take a regular nap.

The rest period for first cycle 2 and 3 year olds will be around one and a half hours. This is a very important time in the school day as it allows the children to rest and helps to establish routines.

For safety reasons we also ask parents to be careful with their children’s personal accessories.

They are not allowed to wear necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings or pendants to school as they are a danger.

Parents should also pay attention to the ties or clasps that girls wear in their hair since younger children tend to put them in their mouths.

For this reason, we ask families to always use simple and discreet hairbands instead of clasps, to avoid any accidents.
We advise children to come to school with their hair tied up so that it does not obstruct them when working or playing.

The school has toys and teaching materials specifically suited to the ages and needs of the children: classroom materials, hand-held games, games for creative development, symbolic games, books, etc., so we do not allow them to bring toys or any other items from home.

Before a child starts at the school, we arrange a meeting with families, school leaders and coordinators, as well as the tutors from each group. At this meeting, all the facts about starting at the school will be explained.
