Instituto Bilingüe VICTORIA
Located in the state of Querétaro, northern Mexico, Instituto Bilingue VICTORIA is a bilingual international school. The school was first established by a group of British and New Zealand teachers in 1993, and has seen extensive growth and redevelopment since its founding. The school currently has plans to take in over 650 students, and move onto a brand-new site in the near future. The school currently operates on a 1.5-hectare site and is still able to boast of a number of modern recreational and academic facilities including a range of arts equipment, a full-sized football pitch which also serves as a break area, and an outdoor hard-court area. The school is bilingual between English and Spanish throughout its age range, with younger pupils following both the British Early Years Foundation Stage, and the local Mexican SEP programme. The English and Mexican curriculums are similarly used when students move into their primary phase of education, and secondary school pupils’ studies culminate in the taking of the IGCSE examination, still in a bilingual curriculum. Students then go on to study for British A-level examinations, in order to best aid their chances of going to university.
