Our vision is to create a unified learning community that inspires all involved to make a difference, through being a school which encourages a culture of “can do”, challenge, and care.

Our mission is to provide a high quality education to all pupils through a stimulating 21st century curriculum, which promotes high standards, progress and equal opportunity for all. Through interdisciplinary studies in a challenging, tolerant and multicultural environment we strive to create independent and autonomous learners.

Offering immersion in the English language, a strong emphasis on learning Spanish language, literature and the Canarian culture, plus the study of a third language at age 11 enables our pupils to become global citizens of the future.

We believe in the importance of developing the whole child; nurturing emotional and physical well-being and celebrating individual talents in a supportive, secure and caring environment. We want all pupils to enjoy coming to our school, for our pupils to learn to live the school’s core values and to believe that they “can” be or achieve whatever they aspire to.


We have been educating students for 50 years to enable them to become responsible, informed and active citizens of the future.
