Our vision

St. George’s British International School is a private international school that aims to provide every student with a broad and balanced education in a stimulating, family-friendly environment. We believe that students learn best when they are happy, motivated and confident. Our school forms part of the prestigious Globeducate education group, who operate more than 50 schools worldwide, providing our pupils with unique opportunities to interact with students from a wide range of cultures and nationalities. This helps to prepare them for life within the global community and offers genuine insight into the challenges faced by the world today. Our mission is to help our pupils to fulfil their maximum academic, professional and personal potential.

Our Philosophy

The educational philosophy at St. George’s British International School coincides with that of all schools belonging to the Globeducate group, and is based upon 5 core values:

  • A British Curriculum
  • Educational Excellence
  • More than just a School
  • Education in Values
  • Global Readiness

St. George’s British International School is the only school in Bizkaia that offers the British Curriculum, and this plays a central role in our international vision; we prepare our students to live successfully and happily in a world in which interconnection between countries becomes more important each day and where academic and professional mobility opens up a whole new world of opportunity.

Our curriculum provides every student with an individual learning experience designed to provide an integrated and all-round education. We believe that music, art and sport play a vital role in promoting and enhancing each student’s potential and help to instil values ​​such as teamwork, creativity, determination, respect and a sense of personal and academic confidence.
