Dear parents,

We would like to inform you that on Friday 21st  October the children will have their school photo. The photographers will be at school in the morning and will take a photograph of every child individually and by class. Therefore we would like the children to come to school in winter uniform ONLY on this day, (green polo-shirt and the skirt/grey trousers).

P4_visita_VeguetaDear parents,

We have organized a school trip for your child’s class. See as follows,

Place: Vegueta 

Reason: Geography-Maps

Date: Monday, 24/10/2011

S5 and S6 art students went to San Cristobal to observe the wonderful example of perspective and the beautiful coloured buildings. They did some drawings and took photos to bring back to the studio to continue with their work a very valuable experience for their A level coursework. 

Dear parents,

We would like to inform you that the afterschool choir will start Tuesday 4th October (15.40/16.40). The charge of the activity will be taken from your account in the months of November, February and May. If you wish to cancel please inform us in writing before the end of the first term, otherwise you will incur the termly charges.

Tarde_de_padresDuring week 10 October all parents of students in the Secondary section will receive a written invitation to attend parents evening on 3 NOVEMBER 2011 4.15-6.45 pm. This is the first year in which we organize parents evening before reports are given out to students. We feel the contact with parents will be more fruitful when there is still time for students to improve their grades before reports are written.

This year we really want to help improve the vocabulary of all the children in Canterbury School. Most of the children only speak English during class and so may have little experience of the vocabulary outside of a class situation. We are hoping to bridge this gap by providing the whole school with the opportunity to learn new words and practise these words by doing crosswords and word searches on a particular theme.

Dear Parents of K2,

On Tuesday October 18th at 15:45 pm there will be a meeting to explain the following points:

   - System used for the teaching of phonics

   - How you can help your children at home

This school year we will continue to give S6 pupils information and advice in relation to their University courses and future careers. As usual representatives of a large number of Universities will visit the school to explain their programmes and students will attend the University Fair Unitour which takes place annually at the Santa Catalina Hotel.


Dear parents, 

The beginning of the school year seems to have been smooth for all. We have now entered the period of hard work, both for students and teachers, and I trust this will last until the end of the school year.

Welcome_to_the_new_school_year_-_JuniorDear Parents,

Welcome back after the holidays. We hope you have had a relaxing and enjoyable time. In this letter we would like to remind you about a few matters related to school life.  Firstly, any questions you have in relation to your child’s education be it academic, social or emotional should initially be directed to the class teacher. If they are unable to resolve the issue it will be passed on to me.


For the last 3 years, the school has begun to take part in a series of talks regarding misuse of Internet, bullying, abuse of drugs and alcohol, and domestic violence. During this year, these talks will be given Mr. Francisco Milán Negrin, member of the police corps, to S3, S4, S5 and S6 starting with alcohol and drug abuse.

S4 and S6 art students visited Casa Cólon to observe and draw some of the portraits in the museum. This is a vital part of their coursework and an  excellent experience to try to learn how famous artists did their work.


Dear parents of P2, P3, P4 and P5,

Maths is one of the subjects that we get asked about most due to the different methods used in the British system compared to the Spanish system. This year, like last year, we are offering maths workshops.
