What is the difference between a bilingual and a British school?
In Spain we call bilingual those schools that follow the Spanish system but which have a high percentage of the teaching load in English. However, most of them only offer between 6 and 10 hours of English lessons per week. In this sense, Yago School is considered a truly bilingual school since its pupils receive 70% of the load in English compared to 30% of Spanish, and English is the official communication language between employees and between teachers and pupils.
We should not confuse a bilingual school with a British one. The latter are those that follow the National British Curriculum, where the contents demanded by U.K. are studied, and the exams and certificates obtained are the official English ones.
Is Yago School a bilingual Spanish school?
Yago School is a school with a bilingual project which means that it has an important teaching load entirely in English and Chinese from 2 years, but following the Spanish curriculum. This allows the pupil to acquire a high level of English without having any problem accessing a Spanish university. We have also started the process to offer a double degree, Spanish and international American, so that our pupils can access any university in Spain, the United States or anywhere in the world.
Why is it interesting for the pupils to get an international degree in addition to the Spanish degree?
It teaches children to study and to work like at university.
They are taught to investigate.
They are taught in a practical way.
It emphasises oral and written expression in Spanish and English.
The international system is complete, rigorous and balanced.
Pupils are required to participate in artistic, musical, sports and community service activities both inside and outside the school, which contributes to their all-round education.
What level of languages will be achieved when the pupil reaches the second year of Baccalaureate?
Yago School is strongly committed to bilingualism and our goal is that when pupils finish their second year of Baccalaureate speaking English fluently (level C1-C2) and Chinese to B1-B2 level.
At what age English is English introduced?
- In classes of 0, 1 and 2 years 80% of classes are taught in English.
- In classes of 3, 4 and 5 years old and in Primary 70% of classes are taught in English.
- In Secondary, 65% of classes are taught in English.
At what age is the second foreign language introduced?
From 4 years old children have 2 hours of Chinese each week.
At what age does the teaching of new technologies begin?
From the moment a child enters our school their contact with new technologies is continuous, since all classes are equipped with interactive whiteboards, they use iPads and study robotics. From the age of 4 they have a ICT classes. In addition, from Primary 5 each pupil works with an iPad in one-to-one mode.
At what age can my child enter?
We have two campuses:
Yago School Nursery with classrooms for children from 4 months to 2 years old.
Yago Senior School from Infant, for children aged 3, through Primary to Secondary. We will open the sixth form, Baccalaureate level in 2019-2020
Where can I get the uniform and books?
The school has a distribution service for uniforms and books in the school itself.
Does the school have its own kitchen?
Yes, the food is made in the kitchen of the school. Our menus are carefully planned by a team of nutritionists who provide our pupils with a balanced and healthy diet.
Is it possible to request adapted menus?
Yes, pupils with allergies, intolerances, diabetes, celiac disease or religious or cultural restrictions who must follow a specific diet, must provide a medical certificate and notify in School Office so that they can be offered a menu adapted to their needs.
When do children receive swimming lessons?
The school has an outdoor swimming pool and during the hot months, September-October and May-June, pupils from Primary 1 onwards receive two hours a week of swimming as part of P.E.
Are there extracurricular activities?
Yes, the school offers a wide range of after-school activities at lunchtime or from 17:15 p.m. to 18:15 p.m.
