About St Michael's School
St Michael’s School is a mixed, Catholic secondary school situated around the Community of Madrid, central Spain. It is an English and Spanish language instruction bilingual state day school. Pupils learn French and Chinese later in education as modern foreign languages. St Michael’s is a member of National Association of British Schools in Spain, an organisation affiliated with the British Council in Spain. With a student to teacher ratio of 25:1, the school educates pupils between the ages of 2-18, and understands the importance of educating children in two languages from as early as two years old if they do wish to take part in a bilingual education. The most recent school year has seen 671 pupils take examinations successfully.
The school was founded in 1969 and has over the years expanded to three sites. Two of its sites are in the Boadilla del Monte region, while the third is in the town of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, both areas of Madrid. It is an officially recognised Cambridge examination preparation centre, offering A Levels as is the case with the British system.
