We are delighted to welcome you and thank you for taking the time to visit our website. It is designed to give prospective parents an insight into our school, our priorities and expectations as well as providing regular up-to-date information for current parents and pupils. We hope you will find it helpful and interesting.

Numont British Primary School in Madrid was founded in 1962 by Margaret Ann Swanson, whose vision was to provide good, sound British Education for children of all nationalities. Mrs Swanson believed that learning in a multi-cultural setting provides children with a rich and stimulating environment, which leads to tolerance and understanding. As the first British School in Madrid we keep such vision for our children´s education.

Numont has occupied its present location in C/Parma since 1969. It has grown in size since its early days but it still retains a sense of familiarity that has enabled it to remain a friendly environment which offers a broad and varied curriculum. We currently have two buildings; pre-nursery to Year 6 (2-11 years old) are found in the main building and Years 7 to Year 9 ( 11 -14 year olds) are found in our secondary building.

Numont School

A British School for Children from 2 to 14

In the Nursery and Reception classes our children are introduced to a stimulating school life where enjoyment is the main ingredient in a programme that initially teaches through play. The school day offers children a range of practical and creative activities and develops oral, literacy and numeracy skills as well as placing emphasis on independence and social interaction.

KS1 & KS2 (ages 5-11)

Primary education is a critical stage in children’s development – it shapes them for life as well as giving them the essential tools for learning. Primary education is about children experiencing the joy of discovery, solving problems, being creative, developing their self-confidence as learners and maturing socially and emotionally.

The Primary curriculum emphasises the importance of developing the depth of children’s learning. In essence, this means providing children with increased cognitive challenges and allowing them to apply the skills they have learnt independently, in a range of contexts, rather than moving them onto the next skill needlessly when they have not truly mastered it.

KS3 (ages 11-14)

Numont has been a British Primary School since 1962. In September 2020, we decided to offer our children and their families KS3 Education to provide excellent, sound Secondary British Education to children of all nationalities. We aim to develop our secondary school around the same values and ethos that have differentiated Numont from other schools. IGCSE content is taught in Year 9 with end of year examinations based on IGCSE curriculum. We have an agreement with a local, well-known British school in Madrid for our students after they leave Year 9.

Numont Secondary School is being developed with the spirit of offering high academic standards, creating an all-inclusive learning environment and a commitment to encourage all of our pupils to achieve their aims.

What Our Parents Say


Extremely pleased

Frankly, we have been extremely pleased with NUMONT. My daughter H. has made spectacular improvements with all of you. In particular, I have felt that you are very flexible taking into account that it has not been easy for our daughter at the beginning because it was her first year. Your school is very welcoming… read more “Extremely pleased”


Exceptional school

Our daughter Catalina started studying at Numont in year 4. The number of students per class is lower than in many schools and that favors the relationship and the follow-up   of teachers.  In class, they have classmates from many nationalities , cultures and religions, and that enriches their students’ ability to understand and enjoy diversity.  … read more “Exceptional school”

The school gave me confidence to aim high
