World Engagement

World School

Since the introduction of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, Brains has officially become a ‘World School’. From then onwards, we have embraced internationalisation as an essential part of our education project. Our World Engagement has caught the attention of national, international and expatriate families as well as schools and manager groups within the education field, where we are a reference. Thanks to this, we are constantly visited by international delegations from Sweden, Denmark, China, United States and South America that allow us to host networking days where we establish connections, formalise exchanges and share international education experiences.

British English Olympics

Our Secondary students can take part in the British English Olympics. The main purpose of this event is to promote public speaking and carry out presentations in an international environment. Participants will travel to London to take part in a series of workshops and competitions following a main subject, as well as presentations, debates, improvisations, etc. In addition, they will have the opportunity to meet students their age from all over the world, as the event has representatives from twenty different countries.

 

This two-week intensive programme is aimed at developing skills such as critical thinking, critical analysis, problem solving, leadership, public speaking, teamwork, negotiation, debating, and a persuasive and convincing use of the English language.

 

Last year was the first time we took part in the event, where we won the coveted ‘Mystery Challenge’ award.

The Masters

The programme consists of twelve days of Business lessons in London and is aimed at Baccalaureate 1 students. In these classes, students learn strategies to sell products, understand the importance of their design, set financial goals, launch a marketing plan, analyse competition, and launch a brand and its main objectives. Students will gain first hand experience in a company in London, where they will learn their modus operandi and business model. Participants will stay in Christ’s Hospital School or Royal Holloway School.
