History and Governance
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 student to teacher ratio was capped 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 came 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, training students for the challenges of the future. Since then, the trust of parents and students has allowed Virtus to grow and establish itself. With the new location in the heart of La Moraleja, Virtus continues to solidify its identity as a British school specialised in the A-Level stage.
Chartered by The Schools Trust
We are a school chartered by The Schools Trust, a UK registered organisation that supports schools worldwide. Together, we pursue a common vision of excellence, fuelled by the proposition that every student should be inspired to achieve extraordinary success. This is realised by instilling in them a love for learning, a relentless pursuit of ambitious goals and a respect for core values in line with the very best of our British educational heritage. The School Charter is a foundational document setting out the mission, vision and guiding principles of schools governed by The Schools Trust.
The Virtus board of advisors is composed of experts from different backgrounds in the educational sector and a combined experience of over 50 years founding and operating top international schools. Their role is to help in the continuous development of the school’s policies and its commitment to best standards, provide advice for improvement and contribute to the innovative educational vision of Virtus.
