Enrolment in El Altillo International School Bilingual School
El Altillo International School is a bilingual school in Jerez with a different educational offer, based on the most successful British programmes and continuous language practice.
Welcome to El Altillo International School Bilingual School
At El Altillo International School we have created a different educational experience, which goes beyond traditional bilingual education. Among the advantages of our educational programmes, we highlight the following:
Quality education in a bilingual and multicultural environment
A bilingual and multicultural environment at school offers all kinds of benefits. Fluency in more than one language sharpens cognitive abilities, improves concentration and fosters problem-solving skills. Children are more flexible in their thinking, which allows them to better adapt to different contexts and enhances their creativity.
In addition, immersion in a multicultural environment promotes empathy and tolerance. They learn to appreciate and understand cultural differences, to see diversity as a richness and not as an obstacle, thus forging a global mindset, indispensable in an increasingly interconnected world.
Being bilingual and having a deep understanding of diverse cultures can give children significant advantages in their future careers. The ability to navigate in intercultural environments and a command of several languages is increasingly valued in the world of work.
At our British School in Jerez we work every day to offer our students a multilingual experience, which goes beyond learning and practising the language.

Another advantage of our bilingual school in Jerez is our academic approach. It is very important that each of our students has a personalised teaching method, which allows them to develop their individual abilities.

Why choose our Bilingual School in Jerez?
The process of linguistic immersion, the possibility of obtaining certificates and the teaching methodologies are three of the reasons why our bilingual school in Jerez is different.
Language immersion from an early age
Language immersion from an early age plays a crucial role in the effective learning of a second language. Children have a remarkable capacity to assimilate new languages, through immersion, they can become fluent in another language as if it were their mother tongue. During this process, children instinctively internalise the grammatical rules and usage of the language.
In addition, early language immersion brings with it cognitive benefits beyond language, as bilingual or multilingual children tend to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as improving concentration and multitasking skills, as their brains become accustomed to handling different linguistic systems.
At El Altillo International School we guarantee our students a teaching process based on full immersion, from the first years of infant school to the final years of pre-university education.
Internationally recognised official certificates in English and other languages.
Attending a bilingual school is a great advantage in obtaining an official language qualification. This environment facilitates deep and constant learning, leading to advanced language proficiency. By being immersed in the language on a daily basis, students can learn more fluently and naturally, improving aspects such as pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar.
Our educational method is a guarantee for obtaining official language accreditations.
Native teachers and innovative methodologies for linguistic development.
Having native teachers at the school provides an enriching learning experience. The teachers have an in-depth knowledge of their language, including cultural, grammatical and pronunciation aspects. They offer an unparalleled opportunity for students to be exposed to authentic language use and acquire a more natural command of the language.
On the other hand, the adoption of innovative teaching methodologies can increase the effectiveness of learning. These pedagogical techniques can make the learning process more interactive and engaging, adapting to the individual needs of students. At our bilingual school in Jerez we implement the most advanced educational processes, in order to improve our educational proposal every day.
