St. George’s English School Bilbao is a private school in Leioa, Bizkaia. The school was founded in 1956 upon three simple objectives; to promote academic excellence, to facilitate fluency in English and to provide a solid foundation in the essential values for life, all the way from Early Years to 6th Form. These objectives hold fast today; at St. George’s, English is the principal language for teaching and learning and we are the only school in Bilbao to offer the prestigious British National Curriculum from Early Years to Year 7.
A system at the forefront of educational practice, preparing pupils for entry to universities all over the world.
A perfect combination of tradition and experience, innovative methodologies and personalised attention.
