Sensory Development

Our multi-sensory development programme (based on the Snoezelen Method) provide a variety of stimuli in a comfortable, relaxed environment where the student can experiment, feel and discover.


Starting in Young Learners, Brains Moraleja students enjoy a weekly curricular swimming period in our semi-Olympic, heated, indoor swimming pool.

Robotics and programming

From a young age, students develop creativity, improve their critical, linguistic and mathematical-logical thinking, motor skills and teamwork through robotics and programming. Furthermore, Secondary students prepare for the FLL (First Lego League) for which they will have to build a robot in teams, programme it to overcome a series of missions and present their project before a jury.


Our pre-Primary students enjoy a weekly violin period following the Suzuki Method philosophy. This system is based on the assumption that every child has a specific ability which can be developed and enhanced through training. The main objective is not professional preparation, but enhancing the student’s integral development through music.

French and German

From 3 to 18 years old, our students begin to become familiar with French or German with two weekly periods of the language of their choice. This way, not only do they learn to communicate in these languages, but also become familiar with the main cultural and traditional aspects of all the different French and German-speaking countries.


KIVA’s primary purpose is to prevent and confront bullying through action protocols that guarantee a respectful coexistence. It is mainly aimed at attitude and behavioural change for so-called ‘by-standers’ (students who are not victims nor bullies) to learn to support the victim and openly confront any sort of abuse.


Thanks to a dynamic and educational approach, our expert teachers ensure that students gain sufficient knowledge on telemetry, adjustment, 3D modelling and texture design to build their own racing car. Simultaneously, they practise with real F1 simulators to verify the effect of the changes made.


In IT & Technology, students in Secondary 2 are divided into small groups, where they learn to programme drones with the Swiftplaygrounds app by using the Apple’s Swift programming language. Furthermore, they are taught to use the Free Flight Mini app to access their iPad by remote control.

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 culinary experience

We have turned our dining rooms into learning environments, where we promote healthy, balanced diets by designing new areas. These spaces are an absolute explosion of colour where we can touch, smell and learn from what we eat; a dining classroom where students undertake responsibilities which will help them learn good habits and achieve greater autonomy. We cook homemade, balanced meals with first-class ingredients based on the Mediterranean diet. This allows students to improve their palate and curiosity through new products and gastronomic trends.

Department of Healthy Habits

At Brains, we are committed to the well-being of our entire educational community, from pupils to families and employees. This is why our teaching centres have a Department of Healthy Habits, which aims to ensure that the school environment is conducive to health, providing cross-curricular education on issues such as diet, rest, physical activity, sustainability, use of electronic devices, hygiene, etc. The aim is that we become more aware in terms of our choices and routines.
The Department operates at different levels in order to create a smooth mechanism that encourages future generations to adopt a more appropriate lifestyle and avoid undesirable health consequences, which in many cases are preventable if action is taken in early childhood.
At the institutional level, audits are carried out to evaluate a whole set of parameters that make the school a healthy environment: the dining room, quality checks and controls on the menus, areas available for games and activities, infrastructures, activities on offer, the promotion of sport, initiatives to support the environment, and much more.
With regard to our students, during their educational career at Brains they will take part in various information workshops, coordinated between their tutor group periods and different curricular subjects, with activities and projects that will make them actively aware of how our choices, and as a result our habits, can determine our physical and mental well-being.
The work that is done at home is also essential, and therefore families will receive complementary information, and activities related to these workshops to complete with their children, as well as being able to take part in information workshops designed specifically for them. In addition, all those who want to learn more from a team of qualified health professionals, will have a platform at their disposal, with access to the school for families (videos), informative articles, and support tools and resources that provide them with a constant stream of advice. It will also enable them to communicate directly with the Department if they have any sort of individual query.

Being the Director and teacher of Brains is a very important challenge for me in terms of experiences and learning. The illusion with which I began the first day prevails and is fueled by the reward of seeing our graduates, who remind us during their visits of how important we are in their lives as they walk the path of their training together. For that alone it is worth belonging to this Institution.
