Locations

Caxton College is a mixed private school, situated in Valencia on the Mediterranean coast, which teaches the British curriculum and offers a complete education to students between 1 and 18 years of age.  It was founded in 1987 by the Gil-Marqués family, and provides Valencia with a School for both local and international children who want to study the British National Curriculum in a multicultural environment. The school has excellent educational and sporting facilities, all within our 45.000m2 grounds.

Caxton College also offers boarding facilities –with host families- which attracts students from all over the world, providing an excellent international environment also present at our summer camps.

The mixture of both the British and Spanish cultures as well as the presence of various languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Valencian…) help to develop and encourage the tolerance of other races, languages and beliefs whilst preparing our students for their future in a global setting.

The majority of students at Caxton College are of Spanish origin. However the proportion of international students who come here in order to follow the British curriculum is greater every year.

This allows our students to learn in an International environment where Spanish pupils study side by side with others from America, Bulgaria, Japan, Germany, England, Italy, Russia, France, Argentina, The Netherlands, Brazil, Australia, China…

Homemade Food & Dining Room

“We ensure, with healthy ingredients from the Mediterranean diet, that our children are offered all the nutrition needed for their growth”

With the goal of maintaining a quality diet, the school offers homemade food and a well prepared dining room available to all students. All the menus are revised and approved by the school doctor to ensure that the meals served are balanced and healthy, and also to the taste of the pupils.

Fruit is a staple of our menus five days a week in the cafeteria. We want our students to get used to eating fruit and it is given to them peeled, prepared and natural so as to be more appealing.
