Year 12

Students normally study for four or five Advanced Subsidiary courses, (AS levels) as well as studying Spanish Language and History to comply with the requirements of Spanish Bachillerato with the Local Education Authority

Year 13

The students will reduce the number of subjects they are going to study for A2 examinations – full A-Level. University preparation lessons in Spanish continue for those hoping to enter Spanish universities. At the English School of Asturias, approximately 50% of our students go to British universities, and the other remaining students continue their higher education in Spanish universities.

Sixth formers also study Spanish language, literature and history, as compulsory subjects to convalidate their British studies to the Spanish bachillerato equivalent.

Students who wish to study at Spanish universities also follow one of the three EBAU strands which we offer: Health Sciences (ciencias de salud), Technological Sciences (fisica y mecanica) and Economics (ciencias sociales y empresariales). These strands are taught in Spanish by our experienced bachillerato teachers. EBAU PCE exams are taken (pruebas de competencia especifica) at tge UNED in Gijon.

Key Stage 5

The students take the following external examinations.

Year 12 and 13 (1º and 2º Bachillerato)

    • Year 12 students can optionally take ¨Cambridge Advanced Certificate in English¨, while Year 13 can take ¨Cambridge Proficiency Certificate in English¨
    • General Certificate of Education at Advanced Subsidiary level (A/S) and Advanced Level (AL)
Our students take both AS and A Level examinations. The choice of subjects depends on the path the individual student is considering studying at university. They are the same examinations that students take in England and Wales to gain entry to University.
    • EBAU PCE

In the three strands mentioned above for specific preparation for entry into Spanish universities.
