What’s the Secondary Education Stage?

Secondary education covers the training of students between the ages of 12 and 15.

We understand Secondary Education as an educational action that affects all the basic aspects of student development: psychological, cognitive, motor, relational, academic, emotional…

During secondary education, students must develop decision-making skills and foster balanced autonomy and self-esteem.

How do we work in Secondary School?

  • English

    Bilingualism is reaffirmed and reinforced by the inclusion of scientific subjects in English. Our students thus acquire a much more interdisciplinary and transversal knowledge of the English language, which will make it easier for them to acquire skills in an increasingly global world.

    Continuing with the line initiated in the Infant and Primary stages, in Secondary we continue teaching subjects in English, specifically those linked to science (Biology & Geology, Physics & Chemistry) but also those closer to creativity (Arts & Crafts), in addition to Physical Education, which, as was the case in the other stages, is developed in the terrestrial and aquatic environments: in the heated swimming pool, in the outdoor sports fields and in the sports pavilion.

    Both grammar classes and Speaking or the so-called English in Use, which prepares them for the most immediate reality. San Alberto Magno School, the center for the preparation and examination of the official Cambridge exams, includes in its curriculum sessions for the preparation of levels B1, B2 and C1. The students of our school also participate in various external competitions such as The Big Challenge, as another way to enhance interest in English and the mastery of this language.
  • French and German as a third language

    Students have the option of choosing between French and German as their third language. We are Goethe's Official Certifying Centre and French with DELF and DALF whose classroom training is complemented by visits to French or German establishments, as well as thematic breakfasts to deepen the knowledge of these languages. Our students finish their secondary stage with three languages, which will give them a competitive advantage when they enter the labour market.
  • Instrumental Areas

    San Alberto Magno increases the number of weekly sessions dedicated to Spanish Language, Mathematics and Geography and History thinking about the subsequent culmination in the entrance to the University. In order to broaden the training, we carry out various practical projects to apply mathematics to daily life, reading, reading comprehension and oral expression.

    In San Alberto Magno we encourage participation in discussion programs, we receive visits from authors and we promote participation in various writing contests or in the school's reading club.

    Also, a part of the extracurricular content is the so-called SAM Restaurant, a place where small groups of students are taught uses and manners at the table accompanied by a teacher.
  • Extracurricular knowledge

    We offer an education that goes beyond the compulsory curriculum with subjects that complete the integral formation of the students. Our timetable is completed with topics such as Chess, Theatre, Multi-sports, Oratory....

    Chess helps to develop strategies that can be extrapolated to any reality.

    Theatre or Oratory prepare students for an increasingly competitive world in which communication skills and body expression are crucial.
  • Specialization

    In the 4th year of ESO, our students choose the branch they wish to study Science or Social Sciences with the advice of our Guidance Office.

    We offer the main courses of Physics and Chemistry and Biology, while in Social Sciences we take Economics and Latin.

    Each student is unique and therefore requires individual monitoring of their academic, social and personal evolution. San Alberto Magno School offers personal tutors who provide a close accompaniment of the student in this path so vital to human development.
