SEK-Santa Isabel is a school for Early Childhood and Primary students and is the only school in Central Madrid authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP).

Our school is part of SEK Education Group whose origins are to be found in a free and independent century-old family tradition committed to offering high-quality education.

We are renowned for our students’ magnificent academic success as demonstrated by the external assessments of the Madrid Autonomous Region and by English, French, German and Chinese external assessments and the rigorous process of recognition from the International Baccalaureate Organisation.

The school environment is presided over by the makerspace and the library, but all the spaces are suitable for children to develop their learning process in an open environment.

The school teaches through the medium of two languages, English and Spanish. The teaching team is made up of specialist Early Childhood and Primary Education teachers. All members of the language department are native speakers of the languages they teach.

Similarly, our trademark is the development of 21st century abilities through competencies in technology and computing, public speaking and debate programmes, cooperative work, Emotional Intelligence and Multiple Intelligences programmes and pastoral care. We pay close attention to individual students and their individual characteristics, in close co-operation with their families and always keeping educational innovation as our point of reference.

Coinciding with the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the creation of our Intelligent Classroom methodology we are carrying out a renewal of our Educational System. We have hired more staff for the career’s guidance department, more arts teachers and teaching assistants and expanded the Physical Education timetable so that all students can have several weekly sessions. In addition, the library has new books in different languages and new musical instruments have been purchased for the Artistic School project in collaboration with Trinity College.

A process of continuous improvement in line with our commitment to offering each student the best learning experience.

On behalf of the school’s teaching team, I hope that the following pages will serve as an invitation for you to visit us in person, helping you to choose the very best education for your children
