ABOUT El Limonar International School Villamartín, Alicante, Spain
El Limonar International School Villamartín is an independent English and Spanish bilingual school based in San Miguel de Salinas, Alicante, for students aged 3-18 years.
We offer education from Nursery through to GCSE and A Level. The school is authorised by the National Association of British Schools in Spain (NABBS) and the Spanish Ministry of Education.
Four features are central to the delivery of education at El Limonar: a bilingual curriculum rooted in high academic standards; social and moral development; personalised attention and extracurricular activities.
The School follows the National Curriculum for England and Wales except for subjects taught in Spanish, which follow Spanish Ministry of Education programmes, and it successfully prepares students for university entrance in the UK and Spain as well as other countries.
In 2014, 88% of students achieved 5+ GCSEs, with 33% of those awarded A*-A.
After gaining a degree in European Studies from the University of Hull and an RSA qualification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), Justine secured her first position teaching English in Murcia before running a language school.
Justine, who has a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership, was one of the first three teachers at El Limonar when it was founded in 1990. She held posts including Primary Coordinator and Head of Resources and became Principal in 2012.
