General Information

The British College: The best choice for your future

Following the British Curriculum and the main areas of knowledge of the Spanish Curriculum

Recognition and Accreditations

The British College of Benalmádena is fully recognised by both the British and Spanish Ministries of Education and is a member of NABSS (the National Association of British Schools in Spain).

Academic Opportunities

We simultaneously follow both the British Curriculum and the main areas of knowledge of the Spanish Curriculum. This means that we teach all the subjects included in the British Curriculum, leading to Cambridge University IGCSEs (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCE AS and A levels, plus Spanish Language and Literature, Geography and History in Spanish, leading to the Spanish Certificate of Secondary Education and Spanish Baccalaureate. This enables our pupils to gain qualifications from both the British and Spanish examination systems, which means that all pupils can opt to go to a university in Britain, Spain, the United States or any other part of the world.  If Spain is their option, then the students of the British College have direct access to Spanish Universities.  Their IGCSE and A Level results will allow them direct access.

From Year 7, another language is introduced and they can opt for French.

An Optimal Learning Environment

Average class size is around 20 pupils. However, with a pupil to staff ratio of about 13/14 to 1, clearly many classes are considerably smaller.
