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 studying history and education at the University of Nottingham, Chris chose to start his teaching career at a challenging inner city school in London to seek first-hand experience of classroom management and discipline techniques.
He later moved to Washington D.C. as a Fulbright exchange teacher and gained useful leadership experience at a beacon of excellence state school in Cumbria, England, before taking up his first directorship at a high school in Mexico City.
