How can I apply for a place at the school?
You can apply for a place by filling in an application form and handing it in to the school Office for the attention of the Head of Admissions and Public Relations. An online admission system is also available. Once the Head of Admissions has received your application, she will get in touch with you in order to arrange an appointment where you will have the opportunity to be shown the school facilities, hand in the enrolment documents and pay the enrolment fee. Those pupils who wish to access Primary, Secondary or Baccalaureate stages will be required to complete an entrance exam in both Spanish and English.
Are there other compulsory services?
Education and school lunches are the only compulsory concepts. Other services, such as school transport, early morning/breakfast club or extracurricular activities are optional. Therefore, they will only be charged to those families who request them.

What is the difference between a bilingual school and a British school?
Bilingual schools are schools which follow the Spanish Curriculum but have a specified number of school hours taught in English. British schools are those which deliver the English National Curriculum in English plus the compulsory Spanish curriculum subjects: Spanish Language, Valencian and Local Geography and History.
A bilingual school must not be confused with a British school. Laude Newton College is a British school: we do not just teach English, we teach IN English.
