History and Governance

Building together a personalised and innovative education since 2016.

Our history

Virtus was born in 2016 with the aim of offering an innovative and personalised education to fulfil an educational need increasingly demanded by parents who choose a British education.

This concept goes back to the origins of the first public schools in the United Kingdom, where the number of students per class was limited in order to meet individual needs. This helped students feel supported by teachers and generated a collective sense of encouragement, motivation and ambition that benefited the entire school.

When the founders come together after finishing their studies at Oxford University and Imperial College London, they share the vision of creating a Sixth Form College with an educational model where excellence prevails in all aspects and trains students for the challenges and trends of the future. Since then, the trust of parents and students has allowed Virtus to grow and establish itself in a new location in the heart of La Moraleja, solidifying its identity as a British school specialised in the A-Level stage.
