International College Spain makes excellent use of the rich cultural opportunities offered to us by our host country. School visits and trips are organised regularly throughout the school year to enhance the learning experiences in the classroom.

Day Visits and Trips

Our base in Madrid provides us with a rich cultural landscape to explore through day visits and trips with our students. Our students will visit a number of local places such as galleries and museums, or sites of historical significance or scientific interest.


Residential Visits and Trips

Longer overnight trips are also offered to enhance the physical, emotional, and social development of students.

Residential trips are a great way for students to learn how to become independent, mix with children they would not normally see outside of school and amaze themselves by what they can actually do!

If your child is in our Primary School in grades 2 - 5 some years we offer the chance to stay at a farm in the mountains near Madrid. This is a fun summer camp-approach to learning about life outdoors and the process of farm to table.

If your child is in our Secondary School then they may have the opportunity to attend residential trips as part of the Model United Nations Club, Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) element of the IB programme or cultural exchanges with our sister schools within the Nord Anglia Education family.


Every student’s International College Spain (ICS) experience is unique. Here, your child will immerse themselves in life-changing trips, exclusive global collaborations, and a myriad of creative, sporting, and academic activities.
