Oak House Bachillerato pupils are resourceful, resilient and able to research and evaluate information critically. They are helped to understand the viewpoints of others, to develop an increasing awareness of the world around them and the demands of living in a global society. Oak House pupils leave the school as curious, conﬁdent and courteous individuals who are fully prepared to embrace life opportunities and have an international mindset.
Students at Oak House School have the choice of studying either the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) with all subjects (apart from their second language), taught in English; or the national Bachillerato programme
All students are offered professional experience programmes during the summer, and career path seminars, providing them with an excellent opportunity to experience the world of work in a variety of areas.
Life skills are further enhanced by participation in the Duke of Edinburgh International Award scheme, which is offered to all students in Bachillerato and IBDP.
In the Bachillerato programmes on offer at Oak House, students study subjects in Castellano, Catalan and English.
The curriculum is made up of compulsory core subjects, which are common to both programmes, as well as course-specific subjects related to the modality (cientifico-tecnologico/humanistico-social). A wide range of elective subjects are also on offer for all Bachillerato students, including: advanced mathematics, computer science, visual art, world literature, French and German. Many of these elective subjects are taught in English.
All Bachillerato students sit the Cambridge Advanced exam in 1st Bachillerato and are offered the option of preparing for the Cambridge Proficiency exam in 2nd Bachillerato.
Upon completion of their studies, Oak House School pupils have an extensive choice of further education options. Oak House pupils are self conﬁdent and willing to accept challenges and make the most of the opportunities on oﬀer. Some pupils choose to continue their studies in the Spanish university system, whilst others choose British, European or American universities. Both the International Baccalaureate and the DBachillerato programmes prepare pupils to enter universities both in Spain and throughout the world.
Our university counsellor oﬀers support to pupils when researching and considering university options. For those who choose to apply to universities outside Spain, an additional application support service is oﬀered.
