School life at O Castro
O Castro British International School was founded in September 2008 and was designed to meet the high standards expected of today’s international private schools. The school buildings incorporate energy-efficient facilities and classrooms, constructed with environmental conservation in mind, and the school is set in grounds of 33,000 m2, with excellent connections to surrounding areas. The school buildings are modern, bright and spacious, and have been carefully designed to meet each student’s educational and social needs, both in terms of academic performance and extracurricular activities. Our students have access to ICT rooms, science labs, two libraries, a rock studio, a ballet studio, recreational and wooded areas, nature classrooms, a psychomotor skills suite, a 2,000 m2 sports centre, basketball and a multi-purpose artificial grass pitch for rugby or football.
It is our hope O Castro that each one of our students enjoys their time at our school. In order to meet the needs of our students and help parents juggle work and school timetables we have a range of services in place to support our families.
