A letter from the Director

I am delighted to welcome you to the International English School of Castellón and hope to convey the passion and enthusiasm that all members of our community bring to every aspect of school life. I feel very fortunate to form part of the outstanding team of professionals here, who share a genuine belief in the importance of children being happy in order to be truly successful.

    From the moment that our students join our school we aim to provide them with opportunities to develop their talents and personal qualities. They are encouraged to flourish through personal reflection, challenge and support. We take every opportunity to reinforce positive attitudes and stress the importance of respectful and thoughtful behaviour. We promote a philosophy of ‘growth-mindset’ and constantly challenge ourselves to aspire to be the best that we can be. There are no ceilings to progress in our school and this permeates everything that we do.

    Through cultivating independence from an early age in our students, we ensure that each child is encouraged to develop high levels of motivation and self-belief. Our responsibility is to educate the whole child by equipping them with not just excellent academic skill but with the personal characteristics of self-confidence, courage and resilience.

    We believe in our students and are enormously proud of their progress and achievements. Through their education at the International English School students benefit from a total immersion in English and have their minds stimulated, their intellectual curiosity challenged and their creativity nurtured. They develop a life-long love of enquiry, open-mindedness and social awareness, with most importantly, an ability to think for themselves.They become world ready.
