About Scandinavian School
Scandinavian School is a mixed, non-denominational all-through school with sixth form situated in the La Moraleja region of Madrid, Spain. It educates a total of approximately 280 children between the ages of 2-19 years old, across its preschool, primary and secondary sections. There are around 15 different nationalities represented and 40% of students being dual nationality. The school is an accredited University of Cambridge International Examination Centre offering the Cambridge Primary programme in the school’s English section, but education is still inspired by many sections of the values and academic beliefs of the Swedish curriculum. Scandinavian School is also a member of the National Association of British Schools in Spain (NABSS) and an accredited international school by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
The school was founded in 1944 to deliver a Swedish education in a Spanish environment. It changed to its current La Moraleja premises in 1973 and changed to its current name in 1982. In 2005, its English and Spanish bilingual preschool was opened.
