About Sierra Bernia School

Sierra Bernia School is a privately owned coeducational day school offering British education from 3 to 18 years to pupils of all nationalities. It was founded in 1973 and, as the longest established British School on the costa Blanca, it has become a leader in its field and very much respected within the community. Situated on the outskirts of Alfaz del Pi, an impressive village with a high foreign resident population, the school has easy access to the main Benidorm/Altea coast road and the motorway.

Pupils travel from as far as Javea, Moraira and Calpe to the north and Campello, San Juan and Alicante to the south. A coastal school bus service is provided between Calpe in the north and Benidorm in the south, stopping at various points en route. The school’s priority is to provide a happy working environment where children of all nationalities gain academic success.

As a “European” centre of education, integration amongst the multi-national and bilingual pupils on roll is encouraged, as is participation in local community events. In preparing pupils for life in the modern world where the cosmopolitan atmosphere found on the Costa Blanca makes great demands on young people, the school works towards the goal where pupils achieve their full potential, gaining ability to apply themselves to tasks with respect and consideration for others.

Mujer muy mala en la oficina, con una actitud pobre. La mayoría de los profesores no son nativos de habla inglesa, excepto en primaria, pero muchos de ellos se están yendo. En secundaria no hay profesores nativos de habla inglesa. ¿Esta es una escuela británica? Ninguno de los profesores ha trabajado en el Reino Unido, excepto en primaria. No quiero que mis hijos sean enseñados por profesores no nativos. El deporte es malo, no hay profesor de deportes. Los uniformes en secundaria no son aceptables y todos hablan en español, incluida la subdirectora que tiene una actitud muy mala.

I do not recommend this school! The level of education is very poor, they are really cheap with supplies and trips, and the social environment is also quite poor. The Social Studies and Chem teacher can barely speak English and the Spanish teacher doesn't teach ANYTHING!! Also, the classes are way too small and there is no diversity. Your child may feel ostracized by the other children at the school, until they get used to the barbaric, food throwing community and become that way themselves. If you are reading this right now, I HIGHLY recommend that you do NOT go to this school because I ASSURE you that you WILL regret it. All of the above is based on pure facts (I went to this school myself for a little while). There is no good reason why you should even consider this school. The only nice person is the English teacher, but you can't go to a school just because of one teacher. Thank you for reading my review! :) - Anna Sylvie Barteck
