Education for the world of tomorrow, today

In such a changing context as the present one, education plays a crucial role more than ever, with the challenge of being at the forefront of the transformation process. The educational approaches that served previous generations do not have the capacity to fully prepare today’s children for this future.

Students starting school today will leave school in a world even more interconnected, complex, uncertain and changing than today’s, where those who are adaptable and resilient, those who are prepared to face the inevitable challenges and unimaginable opportunities that tomorrow’s world will bring, will be valued and rewarded.

Globeducate British International Schools

In order to provide a clear response to this reality Globeducate has created the British International Schools Cluster; a new brand within the group with a shared educational philosophy and positioning, which will bring more and better teaching and learning opportunities to the whole educational community, and of which St. George’s British International School is one of the founding schools of the cluster.

Curriculum implementation

Currently our pupils follow the National Curriculum from Early Years to Year 7, with trained native teachers who teach the majority of subjects in English. The implementation will be carried out gradually, so that the British curriculum will substitute the Spanish one: in the 2021/2022 academic year, for our current Year 7 and 1st of E.S.O. which will then become Year 8 and Year 9 respectively, and so on until 2025, when the implementation of the British curriculum will be completed at all stages of education.

Mission: To prepare our students to shape tomorrow through excellence in British education, with a global perspective.

An Educational Philosophy based on four core principles:

We enrich and challenge, so our students can each achieve success in their own way and help shape the future.

Enrich

We nurture our student’s life

Through a broad and balanced curriculum that goes beyond the purely academic, we build a deeper experience of the world. This encourages an environment in which each student can discover and develop their own talents – and appreciate the perspectives and gifts of others.

Challenge

We prepare our students to face challenges successfully

A great education equips a student to face challenges confidently and manage failure with tenacity and resilience. From rigorous academic standards, to outdoors expeditions, we aim to cultivate the character of every student, through safe and managed exposure to experiences that stretch them.

Shape

We help our students to identify their unique talents

The coming decades will present extraordinary opportunities and challenges for humanity and the planet; and also for our students. Our aim is to prepare and inspire each student to contribute to a more just and sustainable world by making use of their unique talents, which are nurtured by developing the integrity, confidence and character of each person as an individual.

Achieve

We believe success takes many forms

We aim to empower all of our students to discover what it will mean for them, and to achieve the highest qualifications and, above all, to make this process of learning and seeking success as a basis for a fulfilling life as enriching as possible.

Values

  • INDEPENDENCE to have its own values and principles
  • CHALLENGE stretches students beyond their comfort zones to develop their full potential
  • BREATH both academic and extracurricular

  • GLOBALISM with English as a vehicular language

It is not by chance that the school is celebrating today its 65th anniversary. It does not come out of nowhere that out of the 55 different schools in Globeducate, we are the second oldest, after Stonar, which is 150 years old. 
It comes from the determination of the people who established this school and kept it going. 
The founder of the school made a great effort to build this school from scratch and to keep it going during difficult times. 
Now it is our time to move on, to move forward and bring this school to the next level: St George’s British International School of Bilbao, offering British Curriculum in all educational stages.
