Baccalaureate DP/HSD (Year 11 – 12)

Our Baccalaureate programme has been designed not only as a preparation for university but also as preparation for the professional world students enter following their university education.

Programme Description

For the final two years, we offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program and the High School Diploma.

There are a total of fifteen different paths depending on the desired modality and university studies. All include a certain degree of additional optionality.

As a novelty for the 2017-18 school year, the International Baccalaureate provides direct access to university, without the need to sit a university entrance exam (PAU). Also, the High School Diploma is complemented with a maximum of four access exams to university (through UNED – National Distance Education University).

International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate is taught in the following subject groups: Arts, Humanities, Architecture and Engineering (in Spain or abroad), Mathematics, Physics and related, Social Sciences, Biomedical and Chemistry and related. It is characterised by its teaching method, focused on the development of specific skills related to the student’s future career: the use of new technologies, research, critical analysis of literary works, styles and authors, field work, the use or historical resources, analysis and processing of information, the commitment to the community, independent thinking and leadership, an entrepreneurial attitude, etc.

For this purpose, the Diploma Program offers three lines of work that also count towards, and are decisive in, the student’s education and assessment. Through CAS (Creativity, Action, and Service), students are evaluated on their independence and ability to interact with their environment, through their involvement in the development of creative, physical and service activities for the local community.

Mandatory pre-internship period

From this school year, all the Year 12 students, in any subject group, will take part in a mandatory pre-internship program during the last two weeks of June. For this purpose, the School holds a Fair of Companies and Organisations where students will have the opportunity to get acquainted with careers they might find interesting or which better match their professional goals. The School will articulate the collaboration after that first encounter. In this way, the School enables students to learn about the workplace, how it works, its requirements and organisation. These pre-internship periods are an additional chance for students to have a real insight into the working world while still at school, at a time where they are rapidly approaching adulthood.

Languages

In 2013, the School extended the English programme set out in the International Baccalaureate to all Baccalaureate students. The School has also extended the CAS activities (Creativity, Action and Service), one of the fundamental pillars of the International Baccalaureate, aimed at fostering creativity, social responsibility and the civic and democratic spirit of the students.

The Qualification of our Teachers

Our Teachers are native speakers of the language through which they teach. This allows them not only to introduce students to the language but also to the culture in which the language was born and to foster intercultural knowledge and understanding.
