About Laude The Lady Elizabeth School
Located in Jávea, Spain, The Lady Elizabeth School is a co-educational international school. First established in 1987, the school provides a British-style education for over 1000 boarding and day pupils. The school has a wide range of modern teaching and recreational facilities, including brand new purpose-built building opened in 2018, and playing host to numerous modern classrooms, a fully equipped library, swimming pools and theatre. Younger students follow the International Primary Curriculum, widely used by a huge number of global international schools, and providing specially-designed subjects designed to be relevant and engaging for young international students.
For students in the Secondary school, the British curriculum is supported by optional Spanish elements, culminating in GCSE examinations. Sixth Form students are offered a large number of A-level subjects, and are well-supported in their subject choices and in terms of their options after leaving school, be it in Higher Education or Employment.
The driving force of the decisions we make with our young learners are based on equipping them with the skills to thrive in the future. We seek to open more doors to our students rather than close them. We are an international school at the heart of an international community and the education we provide seeks to take the very best from the British and Spanish educational systems.
We recognise and celebrate the fact that success is measured in very different ways. For me, the value that we add to a student's learning journey is paramount. We challenge those that are gifted and mentor their applications to Oxford, Cambridge and Ivy League Universities. Equally we successfully support those who seek a more vocational path with apprentice degrees and work placement programs. Our students are equally likely to leave us to study Law at top European institutions as they are to set up thriving business locally and internationally.
Many of the careers that our learners will go on follow have yet to be created in an ever changing global economy.
