Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Wingate School is officially an "Ouststanding" school as decreed by international bristish school inspectors, making it one of only 8 in the whole of Spain that has reached this standard. It is an international British school in the south of Tenerife. We endeavour to provide children from all nationalities with a quality British education
with a high focus on achieving the correct attitude as well as grades, our students leave school as confident, well rounded individuals. With the incredibly low student to teacher ratio of only 13:1, the children are given the attention, respect and recognition they deserve so that they can thrive.

Teaching approach of the school

We recruit highly qualified, native speakers and follow the British National curriculum. The teachers have constant training to stay up to date with modern teaching methods. We split the important subjects into streams so that the children are challenged but without unreasonable expectations, so that they are confident in their abilities. This also means that class sizes can be very low and the children get the proper attention they need.
