Hastings School is an independent British school based in Madrid which offers education to students aged 3-18 years, covering Early Years through to IGCSE and A Levels. The school is based on five campuses.

One class of Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children are based at Sobradiel campus. As at the rest of our Primary campuses, all the teachers will be UK qualified and experienced practitioners who will offer a curriculum based upon the English National Curriculum (the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Key Stage 1 respectively) and the teacher-student ratios will be the same as these Primary campuses.

This campus is generously spaced and includes an indoor multi-use space for movement, music, and assemblies. Each classroom will have access to its own dedicated outdoor area which will permit free-flow moments to include outside activities. The front-of-building communal play area will consist of approximately 500 square metres including larger toys and learning structures and implements.
