The British School of Gran Canaria is a well-established British based educational establishment, founded in 1966 as a non-profit making association. It draws strength from its past whilst continuously seeking improvement and innovation to ensure the maintenance of the high standards that are a recognised as the school’s hallmark. As a member of the prestigious Council of British International Schools (COBIS) our school has to meet the rigorous and demanding standards of teaching, supervision and management, set by the British Government. Achieving these standards ensures that we provide a truly British educational experience and that the school fulfils its commitment to providing the highest educational expectations.
We believe that our students are happy, engaged and fulfilled in their school. Their participation and achievement in lessons is closely monitored, and teaching carefully structured to ensure all students are able to participate and achieve their potential. The British School of Gran Canaria students are encouraged to be independent, responsible and caring world citizens and these traits are supported by the diversity of over 30 nationalities represented in our international school community.
One of the strongest features of The British School of Gran Canaria is the level of English. We pride ourselves on the standards achieved in this area and level of development noted in our students, the majority of whom are not native English speakers. An important contributor to this level of achievement is the number of highly qualified, British professionals employed by the school, being well over 80% of our teaching staff.
