Calpe School – A Family of Learning
Our primary school is situated close to the beach, in a tranquil setting, directly opposite the 4th century Basilica Vega Del Mar Roman ruins in San Pedro de Alcantara.
Calpe School offers pupils the British National Curriculum in a safe and friendly environment and has been dedicated to learning for over 45 years, with a high teaching to pupil ratio.
From our Pre-Nursery class right through to Upper Key Stage 2, dynamic learning activities are being carried out by our highly motivated pupils and staff. Children are also taught physical education, music and Spanish.
Through the corridor, the murmur of happy voices can be heard as the children in Early Years learn through play. The use of role play is encouraged and is fostered throughout the Foundation Stage. Stimulated by a wealth of tactile games, the use of technology has already been introduced at this early stage. Our Foundation Unit boasts the latest clever- touch technology, the essential ‘building blocks’ for the future learning of the children are being laid down.
Calpe School is also soon to open its bespoke Early Years building, including a sensory garden, for children from 18 months.
Although technology is a key element, and interactive whiteboards are used in each classroom, the traditional, academic skills of maths, reading and writing are the primary focus. The highest academic standards are achieved by our older pupils and all children benefit and thrive in this personalised environment.
Calpe School also has an extensive library helping to instill a love of reading amongst all of its pupils.
At Calpe School, the children are fully encouraged to have a strong ethos of community within the classroom and beyond. Where Calpe school is concerned, “good things do come in small packages” and it definitely lives up to the school motto of ‘Happy to Learn’.
