Education at Morna International College


Morna International College broadly follows the English National Curriculum, but with a much more international focus in our choice of syllabus contents.  All lessons are taught in English apart from foreign languages. Spanish is compulsory for all children throughout the college and students can choose German or French as a third language when they enter Year 7.  Spanish native students follow courses in Spanish and Catalan languages and Spanish social sciences, which ensures full recognition of their studies in the host country.

In the upper secondary section our pupils prepare for international GCSE and ‘A’ level qualifications. These are recognised for access to higher education 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. There is considerable flexibility both in the number and the level of qualifications taken, so that all students have the opportunity to successfully complete their chosen courses.

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.

Last week, 10 staff from Morna gave up their weekend to attend the annual National Association of British Schools in Spain conference in Valencia. As well as including important updates about child protection, safeguarding and educationally related laws, there were also a number of training workshops designed to help teachers improve teaching and learning in schools. These workshops not only benefitted the staff that attended, but the information was also shared with staff throughout our school.
We are always looking to improve at Morna, and we make a major investment in the training and development of our staff each year.
The NABSS conference is one small part of this, but the fact that so many staff were keen to attend, shows their commitment to this process.
Our staff are always looking to do what is best for the students of our school, and this is another example of that.
Have a great weekend.

Last week, Y10 students visited the “Parque Natural de las Salinas” with their Spanish teachers. They learned about the sea turtle species which have come to the island to lay their eggs in the last years. Students did a simulation of the nest translocation protocol that is carried out by environment agents and scientists when a turtle trace is found.
