NACE Schools is a leading provider of high-quality international education with more than 50 schools located across 9 countries: Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Andorra, India, Portugal, Canada and Qatar. As a multinational group, we offer a genuinely international programme that equips our students for success in an increasingly global and multicultural context.
Without doubt, NACE Schools offers the best educational option to help our young people become well-prepared and confident individuals ready to take their place within the international community. We offer linguistic immersion at all our schools and a wide range of opportunities for international exchanges programmes and visits, an international events programme and access to international curricula such as the International Baccalaureate and the British, Italian, French and Spanish national curriculums.
We believe that the need to master several languages, especially English, is a current reality that is becoming more and more important as the pace of globalisation accelerates. A large majority of our centres are bilingual and use English as the main working language alongside the local language of each school. We also offer our students the chance to complement their studies with other languages including French, German, Italian, Russian, Mandarin Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Arabic.
Within the international community the key to success is the ability to communicate in different languages and the sooner a child is exposed to a second or third language, the easier it will be for him or her to learn it. The opportunity to learn several languages from an early age is one of the unique advantages offered by NACE Schools.
In addition to promoting foreign language in the classroom, NACE also brings together students of more than 70 nationalities via a series of exchange programmes, overseas trips and cultural and sporting events. These activities provide a practical forum for our students to use their language skills and to understand the importance of being able to communicate in languages other than their first language. Linguistic immersion allows our pupils to develop excellent language skills in a short period of time and to gain internationally recognised academic qualifications.
The schools belonging to the NACE group offer a truly international curriculum that opens the door to future success.
Our schools offer a range of internationally recognised qualifications that not only consolidate our students’ language skills, enabling them to apply for the best universities worldwide, but provide them with an additional personal skill and a practical advantage that will remain with them throughout their future personal and professional lives.
Depending on the particular characteristics of each school, qualifications such as the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), the prestigious British A-levels or the American SAT courses are undertaken. These qualifications guarantee the mobility and adaptability of our students and the development of characteristics such as cultural awareness, independent thinking and social conscience.
“The International Baccalaureate develops the students’ critical thinking, creativity and maturity, they make their own criteria, and are more open-minded. We have been able to experience satisfactory progress. “

“The IB is a demanding program that requires a great personal commitment, but it provides a fully comprehensive training. Now I’m at university I realise that everything I have learned, such as independent work, will not only benefit me in my future as a student, but for life.”
