Five reasons to join Baleares International College
1) Delivering the best of British education
The English National Curriculum is at our core, enhanced to meet the needs of our international students.
We know you want the best education for your child, which is why we deliver the English National Curriculum from the very start of your child’s academic journey in Early Years, through to achieving the best possible IGCSE and A Level results in Secondary School, recognised as gold standard qualifications, highly respected by universities and employers across the world; setting our students on a successful path to higher education, careers and beyond.
We’re also proud of our team of highly quality, fully-trained teachers from the UK, all of whom are specially selected for their experience and excellence. We offer a fully immersive British learning experience that will help our students to become responsible global citizens with the skills to excel in an ever-evolving modern marketplace.
2) A truly international experience
At BIC we celebrate being enriched with such cultural diversity.
We never forget the value of your child’s cultural diversity. With students from over 40 different countries, BIC has one of the most varied international student bodies in Spain. As well as providing a stimulating and cosmopolitan environment, this also means English is truly the common language, and is spoken throughout our schools by students and staff alike.
Baleares International College is also part of the Orbital Education group, with sister schools in Doha, Budapest, Ljubljana, Moscow, Quito and Shanghai. This provides many exciting opportunities for collaboration, joint projects and reciprocal visits, making us a truly global school.
3) Driving academic excellence
We offer a challenging programme for a successful future at university and beyond.
At Baleares International College, we work with the prestigious UK examination boards Cambridge and Edexcel to deliver the highly esteemed IGCSE and Advanced Level examinations.
We are very proud of our recent IGCSE and A Level examination results, which place BIC among the top international schools on the island. This is in no small part due to our excellent teaching staff, all of whom are fully qualified and experienced, bringing with them the latest pedagogical methodologies and approaches to learning, tracking and assessment.
4) Opportunities for all
We offer a comprehensive programme of opportunities outside the classroom.
Our ethos is based on the fact that if your child is happy and inspired to learn, success will follow. We know it’s not all about A stars; it’s about ensuring students make the best possible progress and do the best they can, whatever their level may be. BIC is non-selective and focuses on progression as well as attainment, in line with the current approach in the UK.
We also offer a comprehensive programme of extra-curricular and after-school activities to our students, including sports, arts, expeditions and more. At BIC, we give all our students the chance to develop a wide range of skills both in and out of the classroom.
It is this belief that allows us to ensure that your child is happy, academically challenged and inspired to learn more throughout their time here at BIC.
5) Two excellent schools to choose from
