O Castro British School exceeds the average compared to the other Spanish Schools, according to the PISA report

We would like to celebrate something special at O Castro British School. Just a few months away from celebrating our 10th Anniversary, we have received fantastic and encouraging news about what is our most important passion - your children’s education.

The good news is the outstanding results in the PISA tests (the Programme for International Student Assessment), that are above the Spanish average and higher than Singapore, the leading country in the last PISA report.

In March, O Castro British School took part voluntarily in the OECD exams in order to evaluate its level within the international context. These tests give reliable and representative feedback regarding the performance level of the students from more than 70 countries that, all together, make nine tenths of the world’s economy. As it is well known, these tests are meant for 15 year old students and assess their academic performance in Mathematics, Science and Reading.

The school got an average of 564 above Singapore and a result much higher than the Spanish average (492). In particular, the school from Vigo got a mark of 556 in Literacy (compared to the Spanish average of 496), a mark of 547 in Maths (compared to the national average of 486), surpassing the first OCDE country, Japan.

The results are particularly positive in Science with 589 points, 96 points over the Spanish Schools’ average, obtaining the best results of all the schools assessed by the OECD prestigious report.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the trust that you place in our school every year. We will continue to work very hard in order to maintain these fantastic results and to offer the best possible education to your children.
