IES Sampedro has 874 students and is situated in a suburban town, in the north of Madrid. Tres Cantos is a new town, homes were built 32 years ago, surrounded by parks and bicycle lanes. Culturally, its residents have the most university degrees per hundred inhabitants; thus parents, at our school, place great importance on education, and in particular on learning English. We have been a bilingual school for ten years. Academically, our school achieves excellent pass rates at university entry exams. Our students also sit Cambridge UCLES exams (A2, B1 and B2 level) and do very well.
