From its humble beginnings in 1986 with a mere 10 children, Cambridge House Community College (Valencia) now has 1300 on roll and a waiting list to enter at almost every level. We are a non-selective school but more than 95% of our students typically 5 IGCSE passes at A*-C. We currently offer more than 20 A-level course and we offer 5 HNDs. In 2013 we became a British School Overseas, recognized by the Department for Education, and we were the first British school in Spain to gain double accreditation as a BSO and a NABSS accredited school.

We are a highly regarded pioneering British school in Spain. We are passionate about providing a quality British education for all our learners regardless of their ability or preferred learning styles, in a "home-like" environment. Ten years ago we began to explore the possibility of offering alternative routes into higher education or the world of work which would complement our extensive A-level provision. Previously, the only alternative to the traditional A-level route was for students to leave British education entirely and do a vocational course in a Spanish FE college, or else go to the UK. This did not cater for the needs of some of our students who wanted to continue to study a high quality British education with a hands-on approach and with opportunities to gain experience in industry. We therefore decided to launch a programme of HND courses which could be offered alongside our traditional A-level provision, and which would help other schools cater for their students We currently offer four HND courses: Business Management, Hospitality Management, Sports and Leisure Management and Performing Arts, and we plan to launch Engineering in September 2015. Our HND learners spend two years at our college before completing a final year at university in the UK, with the choice of either continuing their studies at masters level, doing a fourth year at Spanish university or starting work. During their HND studies they spend time working in industry through our community links in Spain and the UK. The hands-on approach of the HND programmes has helped learners who may normally struggle with traditional exams, as well as those wanting to gain experience in industry to complete university degrees. The course has proved very successful with all of our HND learners having found a route into higher education. Another example of our educational provision is our highly successful PGCESpain initiative, created at Cambridge House ten years ago. In 2009 we approached the University of Nottingham with regard to a collaboration, and worked tirelessly with the School of Education to provide a bespoke Post-Graduate Certificate in Education which would cater for teachers in Spain who wanted to gain the PGCEi teaching qualification, as well as graduates who were keen to embark on a career in teaching. The excellent course has been highly successful ever since. PGCESpain now has a network of over 50 schools around Spain and internationally. While most of our PGCE students are based in Spain,

We have had enrolments from other countries including Italy, France, Denmark, Switzerland and Portugal. To date over 400 PGCEi students have successfully completed our PGCE Masters level course, and many have gained employment in British schools in Spain and around world. At the same time we have organized and run professional development courses around Spain for participating schools and mentors. We are proud of our achievements in this area and have been in discussions with the Spanish ministry with regard to using our model for Spanish schools. Our school has thrived over the past 28 years. We continue to work relentlessly to offer added value for our community and beyond. We are confident that the future will continue to bring exciting challenges and opportunities.
