Children in Morna
International College receive a broad and balanced
education based on the contents of the English National
Curriculum. All subjects are taught in English except
for the languages programme.
Spanish language is taught throughout the school and
pupils of all nationalities are expected to reach a high
level of fluency in Spanish. German language is taught
in upper primary and secondary and Catalan is also
taught to pupils who are fluent in Spanish. Native
speakers in Spanish and German are given separate
provision to the foreign language learners.
Pupils who are not native English speakers have access
to an English support programme to help them adapt to
the school. However, non-native speakers who enter the
school in the Foundation Stage normally adapt without
any difficulties whatsoever.
Practical and up to date teaching methods
Teaching throughout the school places a significant
emphasis on the pupil’s ability to apply their knowledge
and to develop new skills by practice and investigation.
The school makes full use of new technologies such as
interactive whiteboards and on-line resources.
Close monitoring and personalisation
We make regular use of standardised testing and
assessment resouces in order to monitor pupils’ progress
throughout the school. Frequent curricular adaptations
are made to attend to the needs of both the most able
students and those who encounter learning difficulties.
The school has a special needs coordinator who oversees
our learning support programme.
“Education for life”
We place a great deal of importance on the role of our
teachers as tutors and guides to their students and on
the provision of a Personal , Social and Health
education programme throughout the school in order to
ensure that we are covering the whole range of our
pupils’ educational needs.
Details of the curriculum structure can be found in
the Parents Handbook.
