Students at O Castro British International School receive a comprehensive and personalised education where academic excellence is not the only important aspect. Education in values and emotional education form part of our curriculum
Rituals and traditions at O Castro
Our school calendar includes many celebrations of cultural events, giving shape to the year and giving students regular events to look forward to and help plan. Along with marking cultural festivals we celebrate academic milestones such as end of year and graduation, and hold all-school assemblies.
