British Institute in Alicante | Secondary
LES offers a British education at secondary level with preparation for the British syllabus with GCSE and A Levels, supplemented by the Spanish syllabus if desired. A wide range of subjects is on offer so that each student can choose their own learning pathway and then apply to universities around the world.
Programme of our British Institute in Alicante
The British secondary curriculum of LES runs from 11 to 18 years of age, with three main blocks or stages of study: Key Stage 3 (11 to 13 years), Key Stage 4 (14 to 16 years) and Sixth Form (16-18 years). The last two are associated with the official GCSE, A Level and PCE examinations in the case of the Spanish curriculum.
Lady Elizabeth School, amplia oferta especializada con más de 20 asignaturas
Each student must study a minimum of 5 GCSE Certificate subjects.
All students take IGCSE core subjects:
Students must take 1 science subject Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Marine Science or LES Science (if the student is not going to study science in the future and stays in Spain).
GCSE subject blocks at LES: For timetabling purposes, GCSE subjects are divided into blocks. Only 1 subject can be chosen in each block. The blocks are changed each year in an attempt to accommodate as many students as possible with their first choices. Unfortunately, we cannot satisfy everyone.
All students can choose from the following electives – click HERE to view our IGCSE 2023 options booklet.
Sixth form, the final stage of our British school
Sixth Form (Y12 & Y13) are the last two years of school, corresponding to the Spanish Bachillerato. At LES we follow A-Levels (Advanced Level qualifications), a British subject-based qualification for students aged 16+. These are taken over two years and offer recognised qualifications for entry to higher education in the UK and many other countries around the world. Students wishing to improve their qualifications for entry to Spanish universities are strongly recommended to take additional PCE subjects. Discover over 20 subjects to choose from to find your own career path and prepare for life beyond school.
