Morna International College broadly follows the UK National Curriculum whilst satisfying the requirements of the Spanish Ministerio de Educación. All lessons are taught in English apart from Modern Foreign Languages. Spanish is compulsory for all children throughout the college and German is introduced in Y7 and is optional from Y10. Spanish native students have the option to study Catalan to examination level.
In the upper secondary section our pupils prepare for international GCSE and ‘A’ level qualifications, which ensure that their studies are fully recognised in the UK, in Spain and in the majority of countries around the world. A broad range of subjects are offered so that, within the overall curriculum, programmes of study can be adapted to the needs and aspirations of each pupil.
We are an inclusive college and our selection process allows entry to all children who we consider capable of taking full advantage of the education we offer. New students who do not speak English as their native language sit a short assessment in English and maths to ascertain the level of support they require in accessing the curriculum.
We have a strong support structure in place, in order to ensure that we can effectively attend to pupils with specific needs, ranging from those with learning difficulties to those who are gifted or talented. Our teaching staff includes an SEN (special educational needs) department and also a specialist team of TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) teachers who support those students who require additional English lessons in order to access the curriculum and make progress in their learning.
