Educational Project


Language learning

The School gives great importance to language learning. The teaching methodology in this area is based on early stimulation through a bilingual teaching plan in Spanish and English with an introduction to French.

Primary Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate (IB)

Since 2013/2014, and as a candidate center, and since 2016/2017 as an authorized center, the Primary Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate (IB) is taught to students from Pre-School to year 4 of Primary School. With this implementation, the school aims to use the rapid development taking place during the first years of childhood to achieve a more meaningful learning based on competencies, which is the Spanish educational system traditional deficiency.
To do so, the PEP provides a curriculum framework in which traditional learning areas are enriched with transdisciplinary approaches, focused on improving the basic knowledge and concepts of students (what they should know and understand), but also developing social, communicative, reflective and inquiry skills, encouraging students to adopt positive attitudes towards themselves and the others and, at the same time, promoting their capacity to "make" through the practical application of the knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired.
This entire educational project is based on the student-centered approach that supports the holistic development of children, nurturing their emotional, social, language, cognitive, and physical needs. The aim of the programme is to develop responsible, internationally minded people who go beyond the strictly academic sphere and help to create a more peaceful world. The PYP curriculum therefore focuses on developing the IB learner profile attributes in students. The profile aims to develop learners who are:
- Inquirers
- Knowledgeable
- Thinkers
- Communicators
- Principled
- Open-minded
- Caring
- Risk-takers
- Balanced
- Reflective
With the IB learner profile as a key element, the implementation of the PYP will mean to extend the formative / summative evaluation to a stage where it has not been presented yet, which will ensure better continuity of evaluation system and will get the students to receive a consistent message throughout the different stages of education.
As we are also implementing methodological innovation projects at other grade levels, the development of the PYP Program of Inquiry is a part of our School culture. The families will be provided with full information of the actions taken by the School and its teachers for the successful implementation of the program, with particular attention to the contributions they could make.

Professional qualifications

Educational Project
The School's Teachers are qualified native Infant School teachers from the countries whose language they teach. This allows the students to learn how to respect other cultures and customs and stimulates children's curiosity about broadening their horizons by learning about different people and places. 
In the cases of learning difficulties, support activities are offered in language, mathematics, and English at no additional cost to the families.

Multidisciplinary activities

Let's look at a normal day in the School as an example. The whole morning is devoted to practising English and Spanish, using alternately both languages during the week to teach different subjects. In addition, the children also participate in the School's programme of complementary activities. Afternoon classes are given in a second language, with an introduction to the overall method for reading-writing. Pupils receive 2 to 3 hours of French classes per week, which means they are in contact with the three languages mentioned according to the following distribution:
  • 45% of classes are given in English. 
  • Another 45% in Spanish. 
  • The remaining 10% is given in French.

They also receive ICT and Music classes. 

Complementary education

The Infant School's curriculum includes complementary educational and cultural activities. 
Noteworthy activities developed in the school include music lessons at the Special Music Room of Colegio de San Francisco de Paula, judo and self´defence classes at Asahi Kan Martial Arts School -located on the same grounds as Colegio de San Francisco de Paula- chess and swimming. Students can practice swimming at the sports centre located on the old Catalana de Gas, going directly from the School accompanied by their monitors with the transport service for this purpose. 
Regarding activities programmed outside the Infant School, interesting activities include visits to cultural centres, such as the Fine Arts Museum of Seville, and commercial establishments.
