The English School of Asturias is an inclusive, private, co-educational school based on the British model for children of all nationalities from age 3 to 18.
There are currently 764 pupils on roll. The majority of pupils are Spanish although approximately 16 nationalities are represented. Most do not have English as their first language. The vast majority, however, start school aged three in essentially an immersion programme of English as a second language and by age 18 are balanced bilinguals in their first language and English. Many also are highly competent in French.
Our school has modern purpose built facilities set in a campus of 55,000 square metres in a quiet and idyllic rural setting within easy reach from Oviedo, Gijón and Avilés.
The school employs highly qualified, native staff with a ratio of 1 teacher to 8.5 pupils.
The British model of education is long-established and well-grounded in educational research. It is underpinned by the aims of providing support for children to be healthy, to stay safe, to enjoy learning, to achieve and to make a positive contribution. It has a well-structured curriculum with an emphasis on understanding and reasoning. Teaching is differentiated to provide an individualized programme for each pupil in a supportive, structured and disciplined environment which is conducive to learning.
Immersion in English from the age of three leads to the development of authentically balanced bilinguals; a level that cannot be achieved by some additional classes in English such as those offered by the majority of ‘colegios bilingües’.
Education at the English School of Asturias is fully homologous with the Spanish education system and the studies are automatically validated. The introduction of the Bologna Treaty now also ensures recognition by all countries within the European Union of the educational systems of the other member states and makes provision for direct access to all European universities. High levels of achievement, coupled with superior language skills, provide pupils at ESA with a wide choice of universities and access to competitive degree courses both in Spain and abroad.
