Colegio San Patricio (CSP) has taught tens of thousands of young people in Madrid since 1958. Our educational model incorporates the most innovative pedagogical advances to ensure a unique, comprehensive, and thorough educational methodology. We are proud that San Patricio demonstrates academic excellence for many other schools in Spain.
We are committed to ensuring our students benefit from consistently high standards in education and to achieve our primary objective, we have implemented management systems that are designed to evolve according to the needs of the school. The process of continuously improving the efficacy of our teaching model has positively influenced the development of our students’ skills which undoubtedly contributes to their success, both at San Patricio and in their futures beyond school.
In following our progressive approach to teaching methods, San Patricio students achieve four key goals upon graduation. Each learner will:
- Acquire a solid understanding of the Spanish education system’s contents to the highest level possible so they gain the skills necessary to prepare them for study at their chosen universities, both in Spain and overseas.
- Attain spoken and written command of the English language and solid knowledge of another foreign language (German or French).
- Develop additional skills, including effective teamwork, efficient and responsible use of communication technologies, socio-emotional skills, and how to manage their physical and mental wellbeing through participation in sports or regular physical activity.
- Apply the values of the Gospel as they develop as individuals who are responsible for themselves and their contribution to the society they live in.
I believe that our students’ future prospects are dependent – to a large extent – on how they on conduct themselves, which is why it is imperative to emphasise the importance of how they live their lives, as opposed to solely placing emphasis on what they do. It is for this reason that collaboration between the people entrusted with the responsibility of their education – parents and teachers – is essential.
Maintaining an open and ongoing relationship based on regular communication with the families of our students has been significant to San Patricio’s success. The families of our students have entrusted us with their children’s education, and we also trust that they will continue to support the school in providing students with the education they require to thrive as confident, multi-skilled individuals.
I have had the pleasure of being at the forefront of this extraordinary institution, and I hope to continue witnessing the achievements of San Patricio students for generations to come.
