Saint Philip’s British School follows the British National Curriculum which is one of the most prestigious and advanced in the world.
With the aim of achieving the requirements and demands of the British National Curriculum, Saint Philip’s British School undergoes some specific observations which ensure that the quality of the curriculum is daily taught in our lessons. In addition, these observations also analyse our school in order to be awarded with the quality and prestige recognition that it means to be a British School.
The British Curriculum is different from the Spanish one. The British Curriculum has as a basis the fact that every student is different, with certain abilities and difficulties. It states that it is the system the one which must develop the pupil’s skills with different adapted strategies and methodologies to the pupil’s necessities. It is an individualised education system. Our students are the nucleus of our system, this is the reason why they are an active and participative element in our lessons making them enjoyable, dynamic and profitable.
In Nursery stage, all groups have a qualified teacher and a teacher assistant. This is maintained until the students finish Year 2. With the aim of offering a high-quality education, the other Primary courses also have reinforcement lessons depending on the necessities of every group. In Secondary Education we have specialist teachers due to the reason that in this stage the process of specialization is started and it will be emphasised until the pupils finish Year 13.
If we had to summarise our school’s educational philosophy, we would say that all students must have fun learning in order to develop their skills. This philosophy is maintained since the moment when the pupils start their education to the moment when they finish Year 13. Besides, our own philosophy encourages us to be a learning community in which all elements from the learning process (pupils, parents, and teachers) have opportunities to learn and participate in the school routine.
