We are very proud to share with you a new success story, this time about Pedro, a student who has been part of the O Castro British International School educational community since Early Years. Now in Year 9 he sees his dream of trying to become a professional footballer come true, as he signs in one of the most promising football youth academies, La Masía of FC Barcelona, Cadet category.
Pedro began to build this dream at the age of four, in the Escuelas Deportivas Val Miñor, where other football stars such as the brothers Tiago and Rafinha Alcántara also started. A school that instils values that we share at school, such as effort, discipline, equality, humility, companionship, sportsmanship and above all, respect.
He was always able to combine his studies with training, showing exemplary performance, as well as many qualities to be a great athlete. Undoubtedly, his continuity, capacity for sacrifice and effort have led him to the beginning of a new and challenging stage. He will start it together with his lifelong football partner, who has also been signed by the F.C. Barcelona youth team.
The whole O Castro British International educational community wishes him all the best in this new stage. We will be following his steps closely, but we are convinced that, as he has shown throughout his time at the school, they will continue to find their way to success.
