The programme provides students with an IB school experience which places the focus on developing a command of the English or Spanish language in academic/school subjects: literature, science, arts, maths, sports, geography, history and drama.
Every student takes a placement test on their first day to identify which level they should be placed in. Students are grouped per language taught (Spanish or English), age (10-13 or 14-17) and level – Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. There is no minimum language level requirement. As a result of our communicative approach, learners build confidence and competence through projects and focused lessons which include group work, worksheets, questionnaires and research tasks. In addition, they develop critical thinking skills such as problem solving, researching and analysing new information.
Our lessons are highly student-centered – an approach which reduces time spent on traditional content delivery and increases time spent on activities that encourage students to analyse, evaluate, process and improve their problem-solving skills. Additionally, this approach maximises the students’ natural abilities through active learning and, by giving students some control over their learning, students feel motivated, determined and independent.
English/Spanish Plus Sailing and Watersports
Making use of Lledo’s sunny coastal location our Plus Sailing and Watersports option is an ideal way to complement your language lessons. An exciting opportunity to explore the world of watersports with expert coaching in sailing, canoeing and paddle boarding. With sessions grouped according to age and experience, all pupils will have the chance to try new things and develop existing skills.
English/Spanish Plus Riding
For those students who love riding, the Plus Riding option offers them a fantastic opportunity to combine their passion with language learning. Situated only a few minutes from the School, the riding sessions will be a mixture of 3 hours of equestrian in each session, split between up to 1.5 hours riding time and 1.5 hours of practical horsemanship, including stable management and horsemanship lessons. With a strong focus on the fundamentals for novice riders, as well as freer activities for more advanced riders, our Plus Riding option will allow students to improve their ability and technique, helping them take their riding to the next level.
Located in Castellon, a 5-minute drive from Agora Lledo, Hotel Jaime I will be the base for the Lledo summer school with two floors of the hotel exclusively dedicated to our students. Its excellent location near school, close to the coastline (Benicassim) mountains and natural parks makes the area a great base for excursions and outdoor activities.
