Primary Education | International private school Agora Sant Cugat
At the Primary Education stage, Agora Sant Cugat International School’s main objective is to provide our pupils with a comprehensive education, working in close collaboration with families to offer them an education which helps them to develop their personal abilities and social skills and acquire attitudes, values, and knowledge which boost their growth and development.
Plurilingualism is one of the main characteristics of this stage, so the vehicular languages at the school are English, Catalan, and Spanish. Every subject has an assigned vehicular language, and until 4th Primary, pupils also study Mandarin Chinese. In 5th Primary we introduce a second foreign language: either beginning French or German or continuing with Chinese, which will continue until 4th ESO.
We work in reduced and flexible groups, splitting the class into smaller groups, to respect different learning rates. This personalised attention is strengthened by the individualised tutorials for each pupil and each family, to develop multiple intelligences through assessment of competencies.
Throughout the 6 years of Primary Education, pupils at Agora Sant Cugat International School work on study techniques and habits in depth in order to become more responsible and independent. The pupils learn to work through projects, something which encourages internationality, co-operative work, research, and critical thinking.
Music, art, and sport play a key part at this stage, three disciplines which are fundamental in the school’s educational project which is characterised by excellence and co-curricular depth. Sport allows physical development while boosting values such as team work at the same time. Furthermore, through education in arts and music, pupils learn to express themselves, to gain discipline, to be creative, and to develop artistic sensibility which will expand their perspective on many things.
The use of new technologies is present throughout the entire educational process, creating more attractive teaching and learning models, adapted to the pupils’ different learning rates. The inclusion of excursions and camps also favours experimentation with and discovery of their environment.
