Palacio de Granda has always been known for its close relationship and unconditional support for its students. We encourage children in Primary to take charge of their education, taking an active approach based on team work, game-based learning, and hands-on projects. We attach great value to creativity, collaboration, investigative learning, and digital literacy.
Our academic programme, which includes the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), is supplemented by a variety of activities during the academic year.
We are a truly bilingual school as English is acquired in the same way as the mother tongue, in a natural way. We strive for immersion in the language and this forms a large part of our everyday life at school. We are a Cambridge Universtiy examination centre and offer our students the opportunity to obtain one of the most prestigious English certifications.
We add a third language (French or German) in Year 3 of Primary.
We supplement classroom learning with the use of digital technology, valued by the students and can be accessed from home.
International Primary Curriculum (IPC)
The objective of International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is that our students develop their skills on the basis of a combination of academic, personal and international learning that includes course and project work. The learning process focuses on knowledge, skills and understanding.
We want students to enjoy learning, develop inquisitive minds, positive traits associated with being citizens of the world, with their own sense of national identity, and a profound respect for other nations and cultures.
IPC incorporates group work and individual learning for students at all levels with different learning styles.
