MECD-British Council programme

In 1996, the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science signed an agreement with the British Council with the objective of implementing a bilingual programme in Spanish public primary schools that would adopt an integrated British-Spanish curriculum. Currently, there are 10 public primary schools which are party to this agreement in the Community of Madrid.

The integrated British-Spanish curriculum is the key element in this Agreement, and those schools which are party to it are bound to implement it. It consists of a curriculum which maintains minimum Spanish curricular requirements while incorporating elements of the British National Curriculum.

See the statistics section for number of schools and students in this programme.
