Since 1962

British Primary Education in Madrid

Sarah Swanson Numont SchoolWe are delighted to welcome you and thank you for taking the time Joan Gemmelto 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 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.

FOUNDATION STAGE

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.


PRIMARY

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.

My two kids just loved their stay at Numont. Native English-speaking teachers, fun activities and lots of friends from many other countries. Their teachers were always extremely supportive and proved to be experts dealing with kids of this age. Both of them remember Numont´s years with a sparkle in their eyes.

The school gave me confidence to aim high

August 27, 2016  In 1984, I moved to Spain at the age of 8 and I was way behind my classmates. This school helped me pull myself up and they gave me the confidence to aim high. Now I am an engineer and a mother who truly appreciates Numont.

My children’s second home

Numont was above all, my children’s second home where they always felt secure, loved and immensely happy. I have 5 children and all of them have wonderful memories of the school. They keep in contact with some of their classmates and go to visit the school and their teachers when they can. They all agree… read more “My children’s second home”
