Primary in BSV
The first two years of Primary Education, Year 1 and Year 2, have an inclusive and preparatory nature, where students get in touch with new learning skills which they will be able to put into more practice in the upcoming school years.
In the following years, Year 3 to Year 6, students will continue to develop other abilities and gain new knowledge through different activities and practical work, projects, group dynamics and educational games. All these factors will allow them to confidently confront the growing academic demand, which will gradually prepare them for an easy transition to Secondary Education.
This stage has a coordinator under whose supervision the educational action of the teachers is developed. The core subjects of English language, mathematics, and I.T. also have a coordinator who oversees the meeting of objectives for the entire stage.

Hard work, collaboration, respect and tolerance
It’s very important for us to create a pleasant and relaxed working environment for our students. At BSV learning becomes an enriching process while encouraging strong work habits, collaboration, respect and tolerance.
An important part of the tutorial and pastoral programme is the weekly assemblies. These cover aspects related to the values we strive to teach our students, in an educational and often fun way, and feature prominently in our educational project. Apart from fostering mutual coexistence amongst students of different ages, they favour an atmosphere of respect and appreciation, which is the hallmark of our school.
“We prepare the children for the future, giving them the tools they need to succeed in the wider world”
"Watching my students grow both academically and in stature fills me with satisfaction. I think all our efforts have been worthwhile. Thrive on! The future belongs to them"
