School Principal's Welcome

Our school Principal, Mr Andreas Swoboda has over 20 years experience in international education, and brings a truly forward-thinking perspective to International College Spain.

  • Principal, Andreas Swoboda at ICS Madrid

Before joining International College Spain, Andreas was Head of School at the International School of Hamburg in Germany where he has driven strong academic achievements, extended the use of the IB curriculum and significantly enhanced the school’s reputation. Prior to this he has held several senior roles including Head of School at Oberoi International School, Mumbai and Deputy Head of School at German-European School Singapore. Andreas is an elected member and vice-chair of the Regional Council (African, Europe and Middle East) for the IBO and is an accreditor for CIS.

Welcome to our school.

At International College Spain we embrace our responsibility to provide a rigorous "whole child" programme that prepares your child for an unpredictable and complex future. We live in a rapidly-changing globalised world in which ideas, products and jobs have yet to be imagined; and where the limits of possibility are dependent upon the limits of our capacity to dream and innovate.

Central to our philosophy is the understanding that the next generation of global citizens need a principled international vision, in which they accept responsibility for their own development and for the communities in which they live and study.

Our students are confident and skilled users of English, but also proficient communicators in many other languages. They are intellectually-curious and assured in their critical thinking. They embrace the digital age responsibly and creatively, and above all are design-thinkers and innovators in both their studies and in their lives. Our students are "tuned in" to themselves and others, and develop the social and emotional resources necessary to resiliently overcome life’s challenges.

Our progressive and personalised education enables your child to write their own stories of lifelong success. We enable students to know and better themselves, and then to share these attributes with others.

Our students gain excellent results. They achieve places at the best universities, and many will become genuine leaders who will make a lasting difference to society. Our dedicated teachers are committed to facilitating high performance in all our students.

The key to ICS’ success is its vibrant community, which gives students the tools and the opportunities to thrive in differing cultures all over the world. ICS is a premium Nord Anglia Education school where parents, students and teachers all learn together for a better world.

We are a proud international community of more than 60 nationalities with a long history in delivering international education. We invite you to join us in our commitment to transform the world, and help your child to be the best they can be.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to our school.
