Oakley College is an International British School in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. 

We cater for 2 – 18 year old students both Spanish and international, following the British curriculum for England and Wales and preparing our students for further education both in Spain and abroad. About 80% of the school day is taught through English. The school values both the academic and social development of each pupil through individual attention and multilingualism.

By being an International British school, our students benefit from the best of both worlds: the sound foundation from the Spanish Curriculum and the innovation and hands-on character of the British Curriculum. As a result, students graduate from the school with dual official qualifications: at the end of Secondary, the British IGCSEs and the Spanish ‘Graduate in Compulsory Secondary Education’ certificate; and the Spanish ‘Baccalaureate’ certificate and English A-Level certificates, at the end of their Sixth Form studies. The intercultural mind-set and the thinking skills, allow them to apply successfully to the best universities around the world.

The school was founded in 1989 by the current Principal, Donat Morgan MBE. It is BSO inspected and for 10 consecutive years the recipient of the prestigious El Mundo award for the Top International Schools in Spain.
