This is a wonderful opportunity for participants to experience what school life is like in Spain and on top of this, to live an authentic boarding school experience with other Spanish boys and girls.

​Join other Spanish and international participants on our programme in Toledo, Spain for 1-10 months during the school year. Toledo is a lovely historic city located about 45 minutes south of the Spanish capital, Madrid. It was once the capital of Spain and is a wonderful place to be based to learn more about Spanish history and culture. ​

The Colegio Internacional San Patricio offers the IB curriculum. Both compulsory and optional subject choices are available and imparted in both Spanish and English.  The school offers excellent facilities for football, basketball, volleyball and tennis as well as an outdoor pool and athletics track. All pupils are given membership of the nearby health club which organises trekking, water sports, ski trips etc. There is also a full programme of artistic options including music, dance, theatre and visual arts.

​The school year in Spain runs from mid-September until early June. There is a 2 week break for the Christmas and Easter holidays and several other days coinciding with other local festivities (1 November, Carnival etc) during the year.
