Max. number of students per class

In the early stages, classes are deliberately kept small as CS considers that this is essential if CS is to develop the language capacity of each of its children. From five-years onwards, classes have between 20 and 25 pupils which is the maximum top limit.

Language support for students not fluent in English and Spanish

CS prefers to take non-English speaking children as young as possible, usually in the year in which they complete their second birthday. For older children entering the school, CS has a specially prepared intensive English course to bring their knowledge up to the required standard at the end of which they move back into mainstream teaching. Similar provisions are made for non-Spanish speaking children as CS expects its pupils to achieve a high level of bilingualism and obtain good grades in both English and Spanish subjects.
