Welcome to Morna


    I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Morna International College.

    Our school now has over forty years of history, educating children from Ibiza’s international and local communities. Even though our highly developed modern facilities are a far cry from the original “Morna Valley School” site, the school retains the key philosophy on which it was founded, which is simply that children are the most important part of the education process.

    We offer the British education system, leading to internationally recognised qualifications as this allows children from all countries to attend our school, to receive a broad education taught in English, and to use their results to access universities almost anywhere in the world.

    We also take full advantage of the flexibility of this system, allowing us to offer an education adapted to our international context. For example, we ensure that our pupils receive thorough preparation in the use of Spanish language and that they are able to choose suitable combinations of subjects to guarantee compatibility with the qualification requirements in their country of origin.

    Above all, we take advantage of the freedom that the system allows us to create an educational offer in line with our own priorities. We firmly believe that children should have a large range of opportunities, allowing them to be creative, to develop sporting skills, to explore and understand science and technology, humanities and literature and especially to be able to identify and consolidate their particular strengths.
    By educating children, we are preparing them for future success and happiness. This will require them to be equipped with the self-belief that they can gain from being in a happy and supportive educational environment. We encourage them to take initiative, to think for themselves and to participate actively in their own learning. We remind them that in the real world the answers cannot be found at the back of a textbook, and we aim to constantly expose them to challenges that are motivating and attractive.

    I always insist that the strengths of a school can best be appreciated by “breathing the atmosphere” of its learning environment and therefore I invite you, and encourage you, to visit us and get to know us better.

    Best wishes.

    Adrian Massam. M.A (Cantab).

    Head Teacher.
