About The Olive Tree School


The Olive Tree School provides dynamic, personalised education for 3-16 year olds. We founded The Olive Tree in a cosy ground floor of a house in Sitges to provide a school that was warm, caring and with high academic expectations. Now, many years later, we have spacious premises with beautiful grassy gardens, a science lab, two ICT suites, an airy art studio, two large, full libraries, two outdoor classrooms, two thriving vegetable plots and an indoor and an outdoor theatre.

However, we have remained true to our original values. Those centre on high expectations for all children leading to academic excellence. We guide every pupil on their path to developing a spirit of independence, optimism and innovation. We inspire our pupils with an excitement for the world of ideas! Our dedicated team of teachers are British-government trained, and employ a variety of teaching styles in the classroom. We create an environment where children experiment with new concepts, and follow their curiosity. Discovery and a free exchange of ideas are essential to us.

I stayed at the school for around four years and had a wonderful time there. The professors were kind and provided excellent instruction, and the school as a whole offered a variety of activities (school trips, extra curricular activities, school plays etc...) There wasn't a huge amounts of homework, and the ambiance was always incredibly friendly and caring.

My kids spent 6 fantastic years here. Wonderful, dedicated teachers who are really focused on the children. Small class sizes meant both my kids got loads of attention if and when they needed help and were pushed on when they needed that too. There is a real community here, teachers and admin know all the families and the children really well. There is not a school at all like this out here. They've taught my children how think critically, how to question everything and how to be curious about the world around them. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking for the best rounded education that is truly child centred.

Our son is now in his 3rd year at Olive Tree. Lovely school and lovely teachers. And also a very good vibe between parents! Most families live and stay in the area for a long time.

It's hard to put into words what the Olive Tree School has done for our children. The level of individual care for each child is simply amazing...it's a young school but the head has such a clear view of how children and young adults need to be treated and it flows through to every teacher. Very few schools can pull off the trick of warm and caring yet still get top notch academic results. Olive Tree somehow does it :)

I personally feel as though the olive tree school is an amazing school who helps guide students. My son currently in year 4, struggles with severe dyslexia. Over course of his schooling life we have struggled to find a school which fully supports him & his needs. That is until we found the olive tree. I am so grateful for the community of teachers, parents and even the students!! Thank you so much olive tree.

My daughter has just begun her third year at this wonderful school and is blossoming into a delightful young woman. After trying quite a few schools in the area we settled on The Olive Tree and we couldn't be happier! The community is welcoming, the eduction is tailored to every childs needs and the surroundings are lovely. Big thank you to The Olive Tree School!

We love the Olive Tree School! It was the answer to our dreams after leaving a school where our daughter's dyslexia was neither identified nor supported. During her five years at the OTS she received caring, individual attention and thrived in a rich and supportive environment of scholarship, creativity (music and drama) and sports. The small class size is a huge plus, and the school feels like one big family for both the kids and the parents. Thank you Olive Tree School!

The Olive Tree truly believes in fostering happy, curious, engaged and aware students who are prepared to take on the challenges and changes of the 21st century. Their committed and inspiring teachers are dedicated to helping students achieve their absolute best and for this reason, I know my children have benefitted tremendously from this school. Our son and daughter have attended since 2014 and are now well into their secondary years, with our daughter having successfully completed GCSE’s this past June. I am grateful for the devoted staff and for a school who genuinely knows and cares about each and every one of their students and would not hesitate to recommend this school.

The Olive Tree School provides a small and safe community for children to thrive. Our kids enjoyed the many outdoor activities and creative hands-on projects the primary program provided for them. The warm, dedicated, and inspiring teachers always made an effort to connect these practical learning activities with the core curriculum – with excellent results. During their time at the Olive Tree, our children grew both in confidence and capabilities. We only wish we had a school like this where we are now!

A small school with a big vision. There is so much patience, attention and caring provided by the teachers for the children here. Primary years in particular shine. With a small student to teacher ratio and plenty of personal attention. The staff make sure to get to know the child they are working with and play up their strengths rather than trying to make all children fit into the same mold. A special place.

Unethical admission process, it is wrong to assure a place to a child, then withdraw it based on their own agenda. They keep a very small year 11 class, 7 at the moment, to get that 100% GSCE pass rate they sell. But poor academics and values. They are not what they sell.
