WELCOME TO LADY ELIZABETH SCHOOL
At Lady Elizabeth School each child is truly valued and respected as an individual. We strive to empower each student by providing them with ample opportunities to lead, to serve others, and to pursue their unique passions as a learner.
Why are we the best British school in Alicante?
Our British English school is a reference in the Valencian Community, due to our teaching methods and the academic results of our students. We are a British international school with a different academic approach. We are part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP), an organisation of international schools that allows us to organise continuous exchanges and activities with English-speaking students, with whom we not only encourage our students’ communication skills, but also offer them the opportunity to learn about other cultures through immersive experiences.
Advantages of our British School
Lady Elizabeth School is a public school in Alicante (Jávea) with an exceptional educational approach. The advantages of our educational programmes are as follows.
- We have developed an educational programme in which the use of English is continuous. We ensure that our students acquire communicative skills that serve as a permanent basis.
- The first academic years allow them to learn English at the same pace at which they develop their learning of Spanish.
- We focus on a comprehensive understanding of other cultures, so that our students have a broader view of today’s global world.
- Learning a second language during the academic period prepares them for their future career. Nowadays, communication skills in English are a basic skill for the job market.

Learning a language means being able to communicate in any circumstance, our pupils learn a series of skills during the Infant and Primary years which will form the basis of their language skills in the future, by the end of Secondary education they will be able to speak and understand the language in any circumstance, and will have acquired a technical vocabulary which is essential for their future employment.
Our English school has the perfect educational method for your children to grow up in a stimulating environment, preparing them to face their future with all the guarantees.
British School for all stages of education
Our method of British teaching begins in the early years and ends in the Baccalaureate. Along the way, pupils at Lady Elizabeth School develop communication skills in English which will become permanent.
During the Infant Years we emphasise the importance of vocabulary. From 3 to 5 years of age, a child begins to learn his or her mother tongue. If stimulated through a bilingual programme, he or she will be able to learn another language at the same rate as he or she assimilates his or her mother tongue.
The primary school period, from 5 to 11 years of age, is essential to get in touch with the basics of grammar and to expand vocabulary. During the 6 primary school years, a student learns to handle the language in a natural way.
The 4 years of secondary school focus on technical knowledge, with respect to the language, a phase of perfection begins in which what has been learned during the previous years is exercised, paying special attention to practical communicative skills.
The two years of baccalaureate are a reinforcement for the next academic challenge, university education. During these two courses, students are specifically prepared to develop a series of communication skills aimed at both university courses and their future employment.
