New Passivhaus Building
(Español) Brains Lombillo 9 es un colegio sostenible que utiliza los recursos de la arquitectura bioclimática para proteger el medio ambiente. Enfocado en el ahorro energético, este edificio es capaz de renovar el aire automáticamente cuando los niveles de CO2 aumentan, acrecentando el confort, la capacidad de concentración de los alumnos y evitando la somnolencia.
Además, cuenta también con espacios de aprendizaje versátiles, tanto interiores como exteriores. Un buen ejemplo de ello es que una planta entera está dedicada a la construcción, mantenimiento y cuidado de un jardín natural que será 100% responsabilidad de los propios alumnos, fomentando en ellos el respeto por la naturaleza y por el planeta.
Evolution and development

In Brains María Lombillo, PYP plays a key role. This international programme, taught in English (with the exception of Spanish Language and Mathematics), prepares students to be more active, respectful, supportive and hungry to learn for the rest of their lives.
Middle Years Programme (MYP)
Our main objective is to help our students become researchers, academics, autonomous and able to feed their natural curiosity. Our educational model instils an international mentality in our students, starting with multilingualism and a deep knowledge of many different cultures.
Diploma Programme (DP)
From the 20/21 school year, our school in María Lombillo has a sustainable building for our students in Baccalaureate which will use bioclimatic architecture to save energy and protect the environment.
Our school classrooms are spacious, fitted with the latest technology and natural lighting. All our students benefit from these open spaces in their curricular and extracurricular activities.
Playgrounds and outdoor facilities
Brains María Lombillo playgrounds are divided by educational stages. The Preparatory area is suited to the needs of our smallest students, including swings and rubber mulch floors. Primary and Secondary students can enjoy our outdoor sports facilities and new basketball courts.

Apple Distinguished School
One of the most important characteristics of the Brains International School Group has always been its ability to remain a benchmark in the field of educational innovation. This year, thanks to the unity and homogeneity of the educational project that exists in all Brains schools, Apple has awarded the Apple Distinguished School distinction and certification to the entire institution, making it one of the first in the world to obtain such recognition.
Brains International Schools is open for business. Our purpose is to continue to develop an educational project in which we offer our pupils a face-to-face, full-time academic programme, while taking into account at every level all the social distancing, and personal and preventive hygiene measures that are published by the different health and education bodies.
