jobs description

Runnymede College is a private non-denominational British school in Madrid offering a British education to boys and girls of all nationalities from the age of two to eighteen. The education offered follows the British National Curriculum.

Founded as a private school in September 1967, the primary school was inaugurated in 1987, and since 1990, the whole School has been located in La Moraleja, in the north of Madrid. The School is currently being restructured and from September 2024 will be divided into Pre-Prep (Pre Nursery to Year 3), Prep (Years 4 to 8) and Senior School (Years 9 to 13).

Academic levels are high at Runnymede College. In June 2023, 58% of our students achieved A-A* at A level, with 97% of grades being A*-C. This is particularly impressive when compared with the 47% of A*-A grades achieved at independent (private) schools in England this year. In addition, 60% of our pupils gained A*-A grades at IGCSE. Once again, this is a truly excellent achievement when compared... with the 47% of A*- A grades at GCSE obtained in the English independent (private) school sector.

In the graduating class of 2023, we have two students who will be studying in Oxford; another will begin her course in Natural Sciences at Cambridge. Other top-ranking UK universities welcoming this year's graduates include St Andrews, Imperial, UCL, Edinburgh and Bath. The United States has attracted more pupils than ever, with pupils starting their higher education at Columbia, Stanford, NYU, UPenn and Cornell, amongst other excellent colleges.

A number of our students will be staying in Spain, at top-notch places including ICADE, IE and Navarra; others will continue their education elsewhere in Europe in world-leading institutions such as Sciences Po in France, ETH in Zurich, and several excellent universities in The Netherlands, including Eindhoven and Rotterdam.
