Colegio Internacional Torrequebrada is part of the ‘Horizonte Ítaca’ Educational Group backed up by more than 70 years dedicated to the field of education and which has seen 23,000 students pass through its classes. The school´s educational philosophy is firmly grounded in a commitment to the holistic development of each child by taking in to consideration not only the academic, but also the emotional, psychological and social dimensions. For this reason, it combines both the British and the Spanish curriculum along with an ambitious and rich programme of ‘experiential enrichment’ enhanced by the International Baccalaureate (IB), of which it is a member.
Supported by a multi-lingual approach, Colegio Internacional Torrequebrada cultivates the Universal Values stated by the United Nations, of which it is a member. These values are developed through an inquiry-based approach to learning which results in a deep understanding of oneself and the world in which we live in order to successfully face the challenges and responsibilities which a global, plural and interactive world imposes. Many of its programmes of studies are developed with institutions and prestigious members of the local, national and international communities who promote frequent exchanges and favour the participation of families in areas of interest. This results in the positive well-being of their children and the creation of a solid and committed educational community.
The avant-garde architecture and excellently-cared for facilities along with its privileged location on the ‘Costa del Sol’ just 20 minutes from the international airport and the high-speed AVE train network, just a few metres from the sea beside the prestigious ‘Torrequebrada Golf Club’ and a short distance from the Marina and the ‘Costa del Sol Race Course’, all enhance the multitude of diverse and personalised opportunities and complementary experiences Colegio Internacional Torrequebrada offers.
Finally, the school counts on a Foundation which develops, among other things, excellent student programmes on social awareness and responsibility, volunteering, cultural activities, personal development, career guidance, health and environment, sport, sponsorship and patronage, speech and debate, and leadership activities, all alongside theme days, seminars and events related to experiences which support education.
