Welcome to the British Council School, Madrid


We are the oldest British school in Madrid and offer a bilingual and bicultural education to mostly Spanish pupils aged 3 to 18.

The British Council School was founded in 1940 and has been the pioneer British school in Spain ever since, offering a bilingual and bicultural education to mostly Spanish pupils aged 3 to 18. Our goal goes beyond simply providing a world-class education – we train our pupils to be future citizens by promoting the values ​​of freedom, honesty, integrity, commitment, creativity and professionalism, essential in the development of every human being.

In April 2015, we became the first British school in Spain to receive the highest rating in all areas of the British Schools Overseas (BSO) inspection.
