British school in Vigo
O Castro is a private, secular school located very close to the University City of Vigo, which teaches the English National Curriculum from the ages of three to 18. From the first day of school, students are immersed in a real and total linguistic immersion by native English-speaking teachers with extensive experience in British and international schools in different parts of the world. Our aim is to prepare the young people of today to face the challenges of tomorrow.

At O Castro British International School we offer our students a complete and global educational experience. Our students finish their studies at O Castro as bilingual young people, with a solid academic preparation that allows them to apply to prestigious universities, both in Spain and in the UK, USA or any other international destination.
Founded in 2008, it is the first and only British school in Galicia to offer all educational stages, from Early Years to Sixth Form. With a curriculum that promotes and fosters both academic excellence and the all-round development of its students, preparing them to shape tomorrow, through a renowned British educational programme, with an international vocation.
As a British school in Vigo, we follow the English National Curriculum, whilst meeting the Spanish curriculum requirements of the regional government (Consellería de Educación de la Xunta de Galicia). This unique set-up allows us to provide a fully bilingual education from Nursery class upwards (3 years old).
The British education system is world renowned for combining a commitment to academic excellence and practical learning. An educational offer that enhances learning style, is dynamic, interactive and highly motivating. The success of this system is based on developing the different skills of each individual child, with a highly personalised curriculum that encourages critical thinking, research and practical experiences, where the academic content matters as much as the skills and abilities of each pupil.
The qualifications obtained in the IGCSE y A-Level examinations of the British education system are internationally respected and give access to the most prestigious universities in the world.
