A BRITISH SCHOOL IN MADRID
A brief history and main characteristics of the school.
St. Anne’s School was established in1969 by Miss Margaret Jean Raines and is a co-educational independent school which provides a British education for children aged three to eighteen in Madrid. The school is located in Avenida Alfonso XIII, which is in Chamartín, one of the most attractive and prestigious residential areas of Madrid, and is easily accessible from most of the city. There are currently almost four hundred pupils enrolled in St. Anne’s School, the majority of whom are Spanish.
St. Anne’s School is a British school that adheres to the broad aims for the school curriculum, reflected in section 351 of the Education Act 1996, which requires that all maintained schools provide a balanced and broadly based curriculum that:
- Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society
- Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
The school aims to meet the requirements set out by the Department for Education and its predecessors the DCFS and DES.
The School provides a broad balanced curriculum based on the requirements of the British National Curriculum. In addition, as is required in International Schools, full attention and respect is given to the learning of the Spanish Language and Literature, Spanish Social Studies, traditions and culture, which is the essential heritage of the vast majority of our pupils.
St. Anne’s School uses methods of assessment associated with good practice in the United Kingdom, including Primary practice such as literacy and numeracy tests and teacher records of progress. Formal testing in the Secondary school includes IGCSE examinations and Cambridge English qualifications....
All teaching staff at St. Anne’s are qualified British teachers and all are British trained, the majority having teaching experience in the United Kingdom.
The school building, classrooms, laboratories and sports facilities meet the requirements of the National Curriculum and materials are regularly evaluated for their effectiveness and updated when necessary. All classrooms are accommodated with internet access, interactive whiteboards / Projectors and the necessary training in their use has been provided to all teachers and classroom assistants.
We take particular pride in our provision of learning materials and all pupils are equipped with the necessary stationery and practical equipment to aid their learning in a comfortable, safe and inspiring environment.
The management structure of the school follows the British model with a Principal, Head Teacher of Primary School, Head Teacher of Secondary school and subject and phase co-ordinators.
We welcome students of all religious denominations and pupils receive weekly classes in religious and moral education at all levels. The Department of Religious Education and Pastoral Care also offers preparation for the pupils’ First Holy Communion and Confirmation.
St. Anne’s also places huge importance on school musical and theatrical productions. We have annual musical recitals as well as poetry and curricular showcases to communicate our work to the parents and to give all our pupils the experience of performing in front of a large audience. Theatrical Musical productions are of utmost importance here in St. Anne’s School and we have produced a number of shows including West Side Story, The Pyramids, The Beatles Show, Joseph, Around the World in Eighty Minutes, The Wizard of Oz, Grease and we are currently producing a version of Romeo and Juliet to celebrate our fiftieth anniversary.
