International Boarding

SEK-El Castillo School has two boarding residences: female and male.

Living together in the SEK-El Castillo International Boarding Halls can be an unforgettable and enriching experience, which encourages their self-reliance and allows them to reach their maximum academic potential and, more importantly, a personal development that will turn them into citizens the world.

The main linchpins of our educational approach are cultural exchange, recognition of diversity and mutual acceptance and respect.

The students, from 15 different nationalities, are looked after by our team of carers once the school day is over, who take care of the students’ academic and personal follow-up outside of school hours.

We provide a home away from home that combines comfort and exciting experiences.

Students learn while enjoying days full of cultural, recreational and outdoor activities, including access to a high-performance sports centre.

Located in northwest Madrid, SEK-El Castillo offers its boarders a beautiful environment, consisting of a 40,000 m2 campus surrounded by nature.

A day at SEK

Living in the SEK-El Castillo International School Boarding House is a life-changing experience for students. The day begins at 08:15, with breakfast, and enough time to get ready before attending classes, which take place over the usual academic timetable. From 17:30 though, the residence becomes a truly remarkable place:

After tea, students can explore their interests and pursue their passions. The whole school campus is at your service: from the elite-level sports facilities, to the academic and leisure areas, within an enormous open air campus.

The weekends are a chance to participate in unique activities in the incredible city of Madrid and everyone, every day of the year, can soak up the relaxed, open, and positive atmosphere, where students from different countries share their cultures, languages and concerns.

At the SEK-El Castillo International School Boarding, lifelong friendships are made, and memories are forged that our students will treasure throughout their lives.
