Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The British School of Navarra offers contemporary British international education to children aged 2 to 18. We are also a candidate school hoping to offer the IB diploma in the 23/24 Academic Year.

Teaching approach of the school

Teaching and learning is aimed at making the most of childrens' natural curiosity to learn and inquisitiveness. In Early Years, learning takes place principally through guided play. As work gradually becomes more structured in Primary School, lessons are planned with a view to making them interesting and engaging. As they move into Secondary School, children receive teaching by subject specialists.
