Dear friends,


You must know:

  • As of October 2021 the minimum distance between students in public and private schools is 1.20 m.

  • The use of a mask is obligatory at all moments, both in class and in the rest of the school building and common areas of the accommodation.

  • To participate in a course or occupy our accommodation, all students and guests must present one of three documents: a certificate of vaccination against Covid-19 with the complete dose-series issued by the competent authority, a negative PCR or antigen test performed within 72 hours prior to arrival at the accommodation or, for the course, on the day of participation and to be repeated daily, or a medical certificate stating that they have been free of the disease for the last 180 days. These documents must be issued by an authorised medical service. The complete dose-series is understood to be the one determined by the competent authorities at any given time. These requirements may change at any time during the student's stay.

  • All our staff is vaccinated.

  • Until further notice, no meals will be served in the canteen and all social activities are suspended.




Description


The school and its two accommodation buildings are located in the port and beach area. All 3 buildings are at walking distance from each other and only a few meters from the beach of Las Palmas (Canteras Beach). Therefore no public transport is needed.


The school building has a maximum capacity of 70 students in 7 classrooms. It is a 2-storey construction with two Canarian patios used as a lounge connecting with offices, some classrooms and the computer room for internet access. On the second floor there are more classrooms, the library and the terrace, which can be used by the students as gathering and resting area. Each classroom is equipped with video and audio devices and a slide projector.

Las Canteras Beach: the jewel in the crown


The school and its two accommodation buildings are located in the port and beach area.


The Las Canteras Beach in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the jewel in the city’s crown. This 3.8 km long beach is one of the most beautiful and famous urban beaches in Spain, blessed with fine weather practically all year round and where sports can be played any day of the year. Off the beach is a barrier reef, a long rock formation spreading not far from its golden sand. This singular strip of volcanic rock protects the beach from the tides, and turns the bay into the best place this side of the globe to swim and practically “walk on the water” on days of low tide.


When a stroll is your choice, we recommend the long lively sidewalk that borders this long strip of golden sand and that contains many restaurants, terrace-bars, cafés, ice-cream shops and fresh-fish restaurants. At the other end of the beach is the surfing environment around the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium, with yet more sidewalk cafés and bars by the sea.


Not far from the beach, the school and its accommodation you will find plenty of shopping streets, banks, the airport bus terminal, cosy parks, pubs and night clubs.


The treasure of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria lies just at your feet. The school and its student accommodation are located just by its side.
