Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards 2021

We are proud to announce that five students from Canterbury School have received prestigious awards from Cambridge Assessment International Education to acknowledge their outstanding performance in the June 2021 Cambridge examination series.

The Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards programme celebrates the success of learners taking Cambridge examinations in over 40 countries around the world. These awards recognise the talent, dedication and commitment of the students who have worked so hard to achieve tremendous success in their exams.

Since 2009, Canterbury School pupils have won over 70 Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards. Every year our pupils achieve excellent academic results in their official external exams, well above the UK average, which places our school among the best British schools in Spain.

This year our students have received Top in Spain awards for their outstanding results in their IGCSE, AS and A Level examinations.

Our most sincere congratulations to these amazing students, their families and their teachers! It is a great honour for the school to announce this achievement in recognition to their exceptional performance. We encourage them to continue working as hard so they are able to achieve new goals and we wish them every success in the bright future which lies ahead of them.

International University Fair 2021

On Friday 3rd December our Y10-Y13 students enjoyed attending the International University Fair, which took place in our sports hall. They had the fantastic opportunity of speaking with university representatives from all over the world, including Spain, the UK, the USA, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Switzerland, Czech Republic and more.

Class of 2021 Destinations

After a well deserved summer break, the class of 2021 has now taken the next step in their life journeys. Excellent A level results laid the foundations of ascension to a diverse range of undergraduate studies at a variety of institutions around the world. Thanks to these internationally recognized qualifications, Canterbury School VI Form students are well equipped to embark on higher education studies either in Spanish at national institutions, or indeed around the world where the language of instruction is English.

As far as destinations are concerned, Spain is still a very popular choice with Canterbury School students, and The Netherlands has now also become a tremendously popular destination due to the fact that the universities offer a wide range of degree courses taught in English and the universities are highly regarded in world rankings. This shift of tendencies is positive and it is highly likely that in years to come more Canterbury students will chose to embrace the opportunities that prestigious universities across Europe and throughout the world offer.

Many congratulations to all these former students and to our dedicated, highly professional staff team. We wish them all the greatest of fortune and look forward to meeting again in the future. A full list of final destinations can be seen below.
