About

GET TO KNOW OUR CENTRE

At British Council Madrid we are proud to be partnering with SEK Santa Isabel at their impressive educational centre. 

These courses are for students from 2 to 11 years old. They are tailored to the specific needs of each stage of educational development and designed to foster learners’ interest in English in a dynamic and fun learning environment.

OUR FACILITIES 

The fantastic facilities at the International SEK Santa Isabel school include spacious classrooms with lots of light, equipped with all the necessary technology for our classes. They also hold the prestigious certificate of Microsoft Showcase School. At the heart of Madrid, surrounded by museums and commercial areas such as the ´Barrio de las Letras´ (The Letters Quarter), home to historic literary geniuses, the school is of easy access on tube via Atocha and Anton Martin stations.

ENGLISH EXTRA | Much more than English classes

The best way to reinforce English learnt in class is by integrating it naturally into daily leisure activities. When you join the British Council, in addition to attending English classes which will help you achieve your goals, you will be able to enjoy a wide variety of services and activities free of charge, helping to to make the most of your academic and personal development. And of course when you register your child in a British Council centre, the whole family will also be able to enjoy a wide variety of complementary services and activities.

You can discover everything about English Extra here.
