The Sixth Form College of Madrid

Why choose a Sixth Form College?

Sixth Form College is an educational center specialized in completing the A-Level
cycle for students between 16 and 18 years old.

In countries such as the United Kingdom, it is common for students to attend a different institution once they have passed their IGCSEs, a center focused on access to the university.

Sixth Form Colleges offer many advantages, which mainly come from having a small number of students, as well as specifically preparing for the A-Levels and the application process for British universities.

Virtus is the first center of its kind in Madrid, representing the natural evolution of our non-formal school model that we have established over the last three years. We will welcome a maximum of 30 students during the 2019-20 academic year, maintaining the personalized strategy that characterizes us at all levels: students, parents, subjects and application to the British university.
