The Academy School´s History

The school was opened in 1985 with 25 children and two teachers. It originally started up as a Summer School which, due to its success, carried on as a school, initially as a Preparatory school, in September 1985.
Now, the school has over 480 pupils whose ages range from 2 to 18 years. Pupils can continue their education up to IGCSE examination level. and follow this with the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The school has been inspected by the Cambridge University Examination Board, the International Baccalaureate organization and is a recognised examination centre.
The school is a member of the National Association of British Schools in Spain and is inspected regularly both by British Inspectors and Inspectors from the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science.


The school’s philosophy is based on the term “Education” in the widest possible sense. We create a happy working atmosphere where each child can feel that he belongs and where every individual is a very important part of the whole. The child is loved for himself and the important part he/she plays in the school whether academically, artistically, in the sports arena, as a personality or as a combination of all four.
The teachers all look for the positive attributes of each child and encourage these, whilst discovering any weaknesses and helping in every way.It is very important for us that each child is happy in school, thus developing a love of learning, gaining confidence and security within himself/herself which will continue for the rest of his/her life.
