Primary Teacher- January 2021

Holy Mary Catholic School - Junior/Senior DepartmentSpain

Holy Mary British Catholic School started as a Nursery School here in Madrid through the vision of its founders, Marta and María Riva de Aldama. It was opened to cater for parents who wished their children to have a British style education based on Catholic values. It expanded due to great demand from parents and continued to provide education as a Primary School. Further pressure from parents resulted in the opening of the Secondary School.
