Responsibility and duty are qualities, though examined in philosophy and religion classes, are more firmly adopted when they run through everything we do at school, inside and outside the classroom. All that we do is founded on our motto: Faith, Honesty, Courage. We encourage questioning and considered debate in the classrooms, but that is strictly enshrined in a belief in courtesy and respect. Beyond the classroom, we reinforce the meaning of fair play, team work, self confidence and competitiveness through our extensive activities. Real learning comes from getting involved with real projects and we take pride in the charity work we support as well as supporting pupils to do the same. Last year alone our schools in Madrid raised more than €15,000.

Religion is also at the heart of the English curriculum and not only includes a firm foundation in Christianity, but covers study in all the world’s main religions, teaching tolerance through understanding.
