    In this stage we put special emphasis on attention to diversity of students, individual attention and prevention of learning difficulties, and in so doing the school will provide all of the measures that take into account the different paces of learning. Emphasising the capacity to self learning and encouraging collective work.

    The school will provide support lessons for those who, for any reason are unable to achieve the academic standards in any subject. By doing so will promote the ability skills and knowledge that some students may not achieve at the same pace as their fellow classmates.

    In the upper school our bilingual plan is aimed so that we make use of English as a mean of teaching-learning through other subjects, as long as it not detrimental to their performance in Spanish. A second foreign language (German) is also taught as a curricular subject.
