Welcome from the Principal
I am delighted to welcome you to the British College of Andorra. We opened our doors in September 2018 as the first truly British school in the principality of Andorra. Our school site has a wonderful location for learning, surrounded by greenery and mountains, and yet it is only a short drive from the centre of Andorra La Vella.
Our school’s mission is to provide opportunities for all our students to achieve academic, artistic and sporting excellence, lasting physical, spiritual and mental health and to be inspired to accomplish personal and professional success in the 21st century. As such, The British College of Andorra is a happy, vibrant and forward thinking school.
In achieving our mission, we are guided by our BCA community values, namely:
- • To be a global citizen who contributes
- • To be kind and helpful
- • To be confident and determined
- • To be friendly and honest
- • To be thankful and reflective
- • To be creative and inventive
Our programmes of study follow the British National Curriculum, and our students are taught by inspiring and well-qualified teachers, all with knowledge and experience of British education, the majority being UK educated and trained, or having a strong track record of international education with English as the language of instruction. In addition, our students have Catalan, Spanish and French, which is taught by specialist teachers. Thus we provide a high quality, engaging British education that is sensitive to and inclusive of our local and global context. Self-discovery, creativity and individuality are encouraged as students progress through the different stages of learning. We firmly believe that a balanced education should give opportunities and experiences that develop a lifelong love of learning.
We look forward to making you feel welcome when you come to visit the British College of Andorra, where we celebrate the uniqueness of every student as they travel on their educational journey.
The British College of Andorra…where happy children learn best!
