We prepare students for a globalised world.

Our international model is designed to educate our students as responsible, active and well-informed members of the global community with strong communication skills.

Foreign language learning is key to successfully preparing global citizens and competitive professionals but is not the only aspect of sound international formation.

The internationalisation of our centres is thus based on four essential pillars:

  • Language Learning: our students finish Upper secondary with a C1/C2 in English and a B1/B2 in French or German
  • Learning in Languages: as part of our Cambridge Assessment International Education programme, our students take standard Science & English progress exams from the 3rd year of Primary
  • International experiences at the school: we expand the international formation of our students and our language teaching with various international activities at the school
  • International experiences overseas: we support our students when they wish to have an overseas experience in countries such as the USA, Ireland, Switzerland, the UK, etc.

Language learning

“Knowledge of languages is the doorway to wisdom” (Roger Bacon)

We prepare multilingual students. To do so, we have outstanding specialists and a personalised language accreditation system.

HSLF is an official exam centre for the two most prestigious and highly recognised organisations in the world: Cambridge English Assessment & Oxford English Test.

Our students achieve a B1/B1+ level when finishing Primary and finish Upper secondary with a C1/C2 level.

Learning in languages

“One language sets you in a corridor for life; two languages open every door along the way” (Frank Smith)

Our school is an official “Cambridge International School”. We form part of a global network of schools that follow the curriculum designed to help students be responsible, reflexive, innovative and committed, preparing them to face the demands of tomorrow’s world and be capable of improving it.

The Cambridge Assessment International Education programmes and qualifications have earned a strong reputation around the world, and are considered an excellent pathway to university, employment and life in general. They are an internationally recognised guarantee of the education quality received by our students.

As part of this academic programme, our students take standard Science & English progress exams from the 3rd year of Primary to assess their performance against international standards.

Besides gaining English language skills, the CLIL method of the Cambridge International programme helps our students to think, reason and learn in a foreign language through content from other subjects in the programme, such as Global Perspectives.

International experiences at the school

Internationalisation is part of our strategic plan for the school. With that in mind, we expand our offer of education activities each year to support the international curriculum and teaching of languages to thus achieve a comprehensive offer capable of reaching our goal: global students and leaders of positive action.

For this, we have:

  • International teaching staff with international teaching experience and qualifications
  • Partnerships with organisations specialising in international formation
  • Debating competition
  • Public Speech
  • Public speaking from Pre-school onwards with our “English Corner” programme
  • English Concerts / Theatre

International experiences overseas

“Pour bien aimer un pays il faut le manger, le boire et l´entendre chanter” (Michele Déon)

The school encourages and supports our students when they wish to have an overseas experience through a number of options:

  • Our own Regnum Christi schools overseas: Oak Academies (USA, Ireland, Switzerland)where students can go for a term, a school year or even “summer camp”. (
  • Oxford International Education Group (UK)– the organiser in the United Kingdom of academic competitions and specific school events to improve both knowledge of the language and social, public-speaking and independence skills
  • Participation in one-off programmes, such as Model U.N., which give our students the chance to attend international events
  • Participation by the language department in international events for teachers and international school leaders: Cambridge International Schools conferences, British Embassy annual meetings for School leaders, etc.
