Located in Pamplona, Spain, the Colegio Irabia, also known as the Colegio Irabia-Izaga, is an educational institution that offers programs for students at many different stages of their education, including preschool, kindergarten, primary school, secondary school and baccalaureate.
In Spain, the Baccalaureate (Bachillerato) is the post-16 stage of education, comparable to the A Levels/Higher (Scottish) in the UK, the French Baccalaureate in France, the junior and senior years of high school in the United States, or the International Baccalaureate. There are two parts involved in this stage, a core curriculum with the compulsory subjects, and a specialist part with a few pre-selected branches from which students can choose.
At all levels of education, the Colegio Irabia aims to provide its students with a quality education—one that is comprehensive and personalized within a climate of freedom and responsibility.
The Colegio Irabia is part of an English Learning Program (PAI), and its bilingual programs have been recognized by the Government of Navarra. At the school, more than 40% of the subjects are taught in English, and at the Baccalaureate stage, students are prepped to take the Certificate in Advanced English (Inglés) (C1 level) examination. Students may also choose to study French as a second language beginning in the 5th year (5th grade) of their primary education.
The Colegio Irabia is a school at which innovation in education is always stressed. Today, the school’s innovative educational projects can be grouped around 6 large areas. These areas include communicative competence (including multilingualism); the development of critical and creative thinking; digital and technological competence; cultural and artistic competence (music, the arts, etc.); cooperation and service; and attention to—and appreciation of—diversity.
The Colegio Irabia is located in the beautiful city of Pamplona Spain, the historical capital city of Navarre, in Spain, and of the former Kingdom of Navarre. Pamplona is famous worldwide for its running of the bulls during the San Fermín festival, which is held annually from July 6 to 14. This festival was brought to literary renown with the 1926 publication of Ernest Hemingway's novel The Sun Also Rises.
