      Outstanding staff and great facilities in the heart of the West Bay. The school follows the IB curriculum and they have been very successful with the international accreditations. The students are happy attending the school, however it is very rigurous to get a seat.

      Let's start with the positives... Moving on, let's reflect upon what the issues are that give this school such a great rating. The management or should I say the mismanagement. Allegedly all decisions come from Madrid or the Ministry of Education. Can I play a song for my pupils? Madrid says no. Can I ask a pupil to pick up the rubbish he just threw on the floor? No, his parents won't like that. Can I...? The answer is no. Teacher needs a new pen from the store room. No, you need to fill in a request form and collect it after two pm. But I need the pen now. It needs to be approved first and clected only after two p.m. V: Madrid says that I can't accept your medical certificate as it says that you are receiving treatment for a medical condition, it does not say that you have the condition. Any logic in that?! In short, the school is poorly run and entirely mismanaged. There are many complaints that go unanswered and from my experience no clear path of progression for pupils. The marking schemes are based on how the teacher feels the pupils have done although no evidence of this is necessary. Overall, in my experience I would avoid at all costs.
