Enrolment at the Cumbre del Sol Lady Elizabeth School
Our international school in Alicante offers your children the best educational experience, with a British curriculum based on language learning and geared towards international university challenges.
Welcome to Lady Elizabeth School
At Lady Elizabeth School we believe in a different educational process, with an approach that goes beyond the traditional bilingual education system.
British system: GCSEs and A-Levels
The British education system includes two key programmes: GCSEs (General Certificate of Secondary Education) and A-Levels (Advanced Level). GCSEs are examinations usually taken at the age of 16, at the end of compulsory secondary education. They cover a wide range of subjects, and students usually choose between 5 and 10 subjects, including mathematics, English and science, among others.
A-Levels are taken after GCSEs, usually between the ages of 16 and 18, and are more specialised. Students choose 3 or 4 subjects related to their interests or the career they wish to pursue next. These exams are essential for entry to higher education in the UK, as universities use them to assess academic aptitude and specialisation in specific areas of study.
At our British school we prepare our students for the CGSE and A-Levels, so that they have the best possible pre-university preparation.
Our philosophy and commitment to quality education
At Lady Elizabeth School, our philosophy focuses on providing a quality education that integrates academic excellence with students’ personal development. We are committed to critical skills, ethical values and global thinking, preparing our students for a successful future.

Educational offer adapted to the needs of each stage of the curriculum
We offer a comprehensive educational approach adapted to each academic stage. In infants, our approach focuses on fostering curiosity and a love of learning through playful and educational activities. In Primary, we prioritise the development of fundamental skills such as reading, writing and mathematics, including intensive language learning.
In Secondary, our students follow a British curriculum, with a programme based on the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE), through different subjects that allow students to explore their interests. GCSE subjects include mathematics, science, English literature, history, geography, and different foreign languages.
At the next stage, our students embark on A Levels. These advanced courses allow them to specialise in specific areas, preparing them for international university experiences. A Level subjects are chosen according to each student’s interests and aspirations, at our school in Cumbre Sol we offer a personalised education, geared towards international academic challenges.
