Welcome to Laude San Pedro International College, and thank you for your interest in our school. I hope this website gives you an insight into the incredible learning opportunities we want for all our students, as well as the inspirational impact that every member of our community has on the development of the school.

We strive for exceptional learning and experiences that go far beyond the classroom. Our pupils are confident in their academic achievements and possess the skills necessary to study and work in an ever-changing world.

We are fortunate to work in a community of over 50 nationalities and our students are multilingual, global citizens who see no barriers in their learning journey. They study and work all over the world in a wide range of careers.

Our Laude values are embedded in all our school activities and celebrations. They reflect the identity of our students: to be truly generous with others, to have the courage to develop academic curiosity and to confidently pursue their own strengths and interests.

Our mission is for every child to achieve more than they ever dreamed of, in a happy and inclusive environment where everyone is supported and encouraged to excel.

I hope you enjoy learning about the history of our school, its current achievements and its plans for the future through the website, and that you will make an appointment to visit us.

I look forward to welcoming you personally to the school in the future.

Laude San Pedro International College was founded in 2004 and offers a personalised education that meets the needs of all our pupils. The curriculum is based on the British National Curriculum (ages 3 to 18), with the option of choosing the Spanish system from the age of 12, depending on the individual aspirations of each pupil.

Our school has been recognised by El Mundo as one of the 100 best international schools in Spain, and is one of only 5 schools in Andalucía to have achieved this recognition. However, we are ambitious and seek to build on our solid foundations with the aim of continually improving opportunities for our students.

We are sure you will be impressed with the wide range of opportunities we offer, and we are pleased to be able to share them with you.

School Story

At Laude San Pedro International College we strive to be the international school of choice for the national and expatriate community in Marbella, pursuing academic excellence whilst reflecting the identity of our students in all of our work and school celebrations.

Our educational provision, offering the full British Curriculum (the International Primary Curriculum, GCSEs and ALevels) and Spanish equivalent (ESO and Bachillerato) in a happy and inclusive environment are unique in the area; whilst our cutting-edge learning technology and state of the art performing arts and sports facilities are some of the factors that set us apart from the other Schools.

Our GCSE and A Level results, as well as the Spanish Selectividad, are well above the national averages in both countries and we will continue working in this direction to ensure our students have the best opportunities to enter top universities worldwide and be successful and progress in their future careers.

For international students who have just relocated we also offer an extremely successful Accelerated English Programme and Personalised Student Services, so that pupils have the support they need to access the curriculum and make amazing progress.
