About Laude Palacio de Granda School
Palacio de Granda was founded in 1975 by family owners who grew the school stage by stage to have children of all ages from 1-18 by the mid 1980s. In 1998, a modern boarding facility was built to accommodate weekly and full boarders. In 2007-8 Colegio Palacio de Granda was incorporated into the Laude chain of schools in Spain and UK. In 2014 the Laude schools became part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP).
Palacio de Granda offers a bilingual spanish-english environment covering the spanish national curriculum with students sitting university entrance examinations at the end of 2º Bachillerato for Spain or other international universities. The school is a Cambridge Examinations centre offering English Language examinations. Pupils also sit French and German language examinations. The curriculum is enhanced with the addition of the International Primary Curriculum and subjects such as french or german, computing, drama, public speaking and robotics. The pupils from 5ºPrimary use personal tablets/chromebooks and, other methodology, such as project based learning, is used across the school to inspire and motivate the students and support their learning. There is a wide range of extracurricular activities on offer including sports and music. Concerts, plays and musicals (in English or Spanish) are regular events and many pupils belong to the school sports teams (basketball, handball and football), competing in the local club or school leagues.
At Palacio de Granda we believe that all our students continually achieve learning that is ‘value added’ and at times is amazing. Our learning focus, breadth and depth of learning, our international cultural experiences and sharing of best practice across the ISP schools makes learning at and working at Palacio de Granda an inspirational and rewarding experience.
