The English School of Asturias
The ESA is the brainchild of a group of parents committed to providing a British education to children of all nationalities. Started in 1997, the school has gone from strength to strength and is now firmly established in its own exceptional purpose built accommodation in the beautiful Asturian countryside between Oviedo and Gijón. With a target class size of 24, with fully qualified and experienced staff and a modern, well equipped building the school prides itself in offering quality in every aspect of its work.
The school is fully authorised to teach the National Curriculum for England and Wales with additional studies in Spanish. All students have the opportunity to reach advanced levels of English, Spanish and French regardless of whether they specialise in the sciences or humanities in their pre-university studies. The school also has a programme of extra curricular activities after school and at lunchtimes. .
The students are prepared for IGCSE and AS/A level examinations). Academic standards are high and the first cohorts of students to graduate from the school are studying a wide variety of technical, scientific, business and language courses in universities in the UK and in Spain.
Relationships throughout the school are strong and the purposeful atmosphere is underpinned by care and attention for each individual child. New students are made welcome and their parents given every opportunity to integrate into the supportive parent body.
