Teaching continues online!

At Novaschool Sunland International teaching continues online with excellent results!

All teachers are maintaining effective teaching and learning to ensure that the curriculum is fulfilled by teaching online everyday from 9.30-16.30 and maintaining our usual timetable of lessons.

On a daily basis teachers are giving curriculum based instruction and setting activities by video and using Microsoft Teams; additional resources are being made available on MyAgora+ to consolidate and extend the learning and feedback is being provided by teachers for work completed at home.

We are not missing any lesson! Foundation and Y1, 2, 3, 4 are uploading all the work to Myagora, creating videos and sending materials to the families to work from home.

This situation is new for everyone, and we can say that our team is showing a high level of involvement and adaptation to the 100% online teaching methodology. In addition, we thank families for all the effort, understanding and recognition of these last days.

We stay at home without missing lessons at Novaschool Sunland International.

International Women’s Day

We have celebrated the International Women’s Day in a very special way. Nine mothers of the school gave a talk about their professions from different sectors to our secondary students.

Secondary students attended different talks on last Friday 6th March, whose speakers were all women, mothers, professionals from different sectors: Nurse, Doctor specializing in Traumatology, Speech Therapist, Town Councillor, Telecommunications Engineer, Air Traffic Controller, Doctor in Economics and Business Management, ICT expert, and Operations Manager of Novaschool Education Group.

All of them presented their experience, answering questions such as:

  • How did they know what they wanted to do?
  • How did they get to the position they are in?
  • What studies were necessary?

All of this with the aim of motivating students and making them see that, with effort, everything is possible.

And you, what do you want to be when you grow up?



Among the best international schools in Spain

Novaschool Sunland International, a British school in Malaga, recognised among the best international schools in Spain by the newspaper El Mundo and El Español

March is an outstanding month for schools, it is the time when families look for schools and enrol their children for the next school year. It is also when the media publish their educational feature articles, such as ‘El Mundo’, which today publishes its 21st edition of the Best Schools Ranking, among which our school stands out in the category of best international schools. Furthermore, ‘El Español’ digital media, for the fourth consecutive year, analyses the best schools in Spain and recognises Novaschool Sunland International amongst the 20 best international schools in Spain.

Ranking Best Colleges, El Mundo

The newspaper ‘’El Mundo recognises a total of 6 international schools in Andalucia, of which three are in the province of Malaga. Novaschool Sunland, located in Cártama, is the only one closest to the capital of Malaga, since the other two are in Marbella and San Pedro de Alcántara. ‘El Mundo’ has highlighted our facilities and the beautiful location, set in the countryside of more than 40,000 square meters.

Best international schools, El Español

Only two schools in Malaga appear in the analysis published by ‘El Español’ in the category of “Best international schools” and one of them is Novaschool Sunland, which highlights the involvement of all teaching and non-teaching staff, and the effort to develop the skills and personal talent of each student.

Undoubtedly this is great news and an honour that national media recognise the work we do in our school, the effort and dedication of the entire team that forms Novaschool Sunland International, and the trust given by families in our school.

London trip!

Music and Drama students from Year 10 and Year 11 went to London for three days with Miss Baker and Miss Evans to watch the shows ‘Wicked’ and ‘School of Rock’.

It was also a cultural excursion with a Gamalan Bali musical workshop, visit to Tate modern and of course Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace.

They really enjoyed it!

International Days

We promote cultural immersion at Novaschool Sunland

Once a month, our students enjoy music, gastronomy, information of interest and historical knowledge of other countries.

Last year, we already ventured into this cultural project, which involves introducing students in a different environment on the last Friday of each month. We celebrated the International Day of Greece in September; the International Day of Germany in October; the International Day of U.S.A. in November…with more days to come!

During the week before these days, both students and teachers are involved in designing the decoration of the school canteen, as well as other common areas of the center, and throughout the day, we enjoy together a complete cultural immersion, surrounded by typical music and food. In addition, teachers of the different subjects meet together to focus their classes on the corresponding country.
