Private school in Arturo Soria (María Lombillo)
Brains María Lombillo is an international school in the Arturo Soria area of Madrid that teaches every subject in English except Spanish language and mathematics. Our classes are equipped with the latest educational technology. Our students grow up having fun and enjoying our different playgrounds.
New Passivhaus Building
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
Primary Years Programme (PYP)
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)
Brains Maria Lombillo has been granted MYP applicant school status* and is seeking to obtain authorization to become an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy: a commitment to a rigorous, quality international education that we believe is important for our students.
* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization may offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP) or the Career-related Programme (CP). Applicant school status does not guarantee that the school will obtain this authorization.

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.
A space for experimental science, where students can appreciate the advantages of scientific methodology and put theoretical concepts into practice, analysing and verifying every step of their research projects.
This is an essential area of our international educational programme. Open to all our Brains community, the library is a space where information and books are available to everyone. Guided reading, free reading, teamwork and individual study sessions make our library an ideal multi-tasking environment.
Our garden aims to raise environmental awareness, encourage healthy eating habits and promote a cooperation mentality. Students will witness the plants’ growing and experience this process first hand.
Climbing offers students the chance to acquire a wide variety of motor skills and a sense of effectiveness.
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.
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.
Our new online shop Brains Store is available for the purchase of school uniforms. Shortly, it will also be possible to buy books, sports equipment and all the school supplies you will need during the school year.
The payment of your purchases through the online shop will be made via virtual POS. If the order is placed in the physical shop, you can choose, as before, between payment by POS or by direct debit to the account we have registered with you already.
With regard to the delivery of orders, there will be the option of home delivery or collection from the physical shop located within the school. The shop will be open to the public from 9am to 1pm, Monday to Friday
Brains Warrior Kids
“Brains Warrior Kids” inicia su aventura en 2019, dentro de los contenidos curriculares del área de Educación Física, de 4º a 6º de Primaria, en Brains María Lombillo.
Una práctica deportiva innovadora y muy motivadora, centrada en una serie de contenidos a nivel cardiovascular, de fuerza y OCR (técnica de obstáculos) y envuelta en una serie de circuitos y sistemas de entrenamiento adecuados a cada alumno y nivel. Esta actividad aporta las condiciones necesarias para que el alumno desarrolle y explote sus capacidades y cualidades físicas, combinando el entrenamiento con el componente lúdico imprescindible en cualquier deporte. El objetivo principal de Brains Warrior Kids es el conocimiento y la superación de obstáculos, introduciendo elementos y entrenamientos innovadores para que los alumnos se diviertan y se conviertan en auténticos “warriors”, capaces de enfrentarse a nuevos retos con la confianza y la seguridad que aporta a esta disciplina el código ético japonés “Bushido” y las 7 virtudes del Camino del Guerrero.
La actividad se complementará con competiciones como la Farinato Race, una de las carreras de obstáculos más importantes a nivel nacional, ligas internas, eventos deportivos, representación en carreras de obstáculos a nivel nacional, jornadas deportivas “en familia”, incluso con la posible apertura de un grupo adulto a nivel extraescolar.
Being a Director at Brains, a solid institution with values, is having the opportunity to be part of something as big as the education of our students. It is in our hands to help them to be, not the best in the world, but the best for the world. From my previous stage as Psychopedagogical Counsellor, and currently as Director, I can confirm that at Brains International Schools we know that each one of our students is different, and for this reason we offer training full of possibilities that allows them to discover and develop their full potential, to that they finish their educational stage with an excellent preparation, which will accompany them in their academic and personal future
