An Open Friendly Atmosphere
The fundamental philosophy that characterises Oakley is that children learn when they are happy and self confident in an environment where they feel valued and safe.
Education and Cooperation
We believe that education is a relationship between the child, the school and the parents. Our approach is to work together to achieve the best for each child.
Confidence and Self Esteem
Our education system is child centered and individualised. From the moment a child starts school we work to develop their confidence and self esteem. This approach forms the basis of their learning and the development of this continues during their time at school. We want our students to be happy and confident. We believe this happens best in a learning focused environment.
The Education at Oakley is based on the British National Curriculum. Additionally students spend approximately one hour a day learning Spanish. The school is a member of the National Association of
British Schools in Spain and is inspected by British Council authorised inspectors and the Spanish Ministry of Education.
Our methodology is focused on effective teaching and learning. We seek to identify and develop each student ‘s learning style in order to awaken their talents and desire to achieve.
At Oakley the children and adults mix in an open, friendly and trusting manner. We educate an international community having at our core the values of Respect, Responsibility and Resolving problems.
