Our school teaches students at all educational stages, from Infant Education to Baccalaureate. We also offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme. At each one of the educational stages, we offer programmes adapted to our pupils’ multiple realities, in an environment adapted to their needs. At each level, pupils develop values which are important for both their academic and personal lives, and are given the necessary tools for future academic and professional success.
Infant Education is the basis for all the educational stages at our international school. At this stage, we lay the foundations for all learning. At this young age, children must “set” their systems. Early stimulation encourages their growth, and the multiplication of brain cell connections. This stage is made up of two “cycles”. In the first cycle (1 to 2 years old), play takes centre stage as the vehicle through which the children receive a comprehensive programme of early stimulation. In the second cycle (from 3 to 5 years old) the children begin a bilingual English-Spanish programme.
At this stage, the children hone their personality and learn skills and knowledge related to oral expression and comprehension, reading, writing, and sums. They also develop social skills, work and study habits, artistic feeling, creativity and emotion. This all helps them to succeed both at other educational stages and in their later lives. In Primary Education at our international school, the four fundamental pillars are: our bilingual programme, (50% of subjects taught in English), the introduction of German, Music (4 class hours, as well as participation in concerts and music events) and Sport (physical education and water sports).
We offer a broad and demanding curriculum, focused on different learning competencies, in which pupils gain not only a good command of the fundamental skills involved in mathematics, the basis of technological development and languages, but a knowledge of science, maths, music, literature, history and geography. These objectives cannot be achieved without considering the different attitudes and needs of our pupils at this age, as well as their different interests. It is therefore of vital importance that teachers take into account the diversity of our students. We aim to help them develop personally as well as provide them with individualised attention according to their specific needs.
The majority of our pupils who decide to study the Baccalaureate have made up their minds to go to university. These two years involve a great deal of theoretical content, and it is important to follow each pupil’s progress closely to ensure that they reach their full potential. Our two aims over the course of these two years are to offer pupils a high academic level to help them achieve the best possible results in their University Entrance Exams (PAU), and to shape people able to successfully face the demands of university .
Agora Lledó International School has offered the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme since the 2011 academic year. Pupils at our international school combine their IB studies with the LOE Baccalaureate so that when they come to the end of their studies they will achieve both qualifications. This programme is recognised for its high quality, developing and strengthening an international mind set and positive attitude to learning. With the International Baccalaureate, pupils can end their learning journey at our school with international studies which permit them access to the best universities in Europe and around the world.
