The Yeoward School - the Upper School of the British School of Tenerife


The Yeoward School, founded in 1966, is situated in Puerto de la Cruz and forms the Upper School of the British School of Tenerife. Pupils can travel from as far away as Santa Cruz and La Laguna using the schools bus.

It boasts a new science laboratory, in addition to an existing one, a library and a computer room. Near to the school premises is a sports club where pupils can enjoy the use of the facilites, to play five-a-side soccer, basketball, volleyball and hockey. There is also a swimming pool and five tennis courts.

The school also provides a residential area for pupils to board.

The main school building is situated in an area of Puerto de La Cruz called Parque Taoro and has been extensively renovated. Students are working through Years 9 to 13 and the aim is for the school to have the feel of a family community.

The English National Curriculum is followed and the school's students generally boast impressive successes in exams. All students take GCSEs in English, Maths and Science at the end of Year 10.

The teaching of Spanish is also considered to be very important to the school. Both the Spanish language and academic Spanish is covered with some lessons actually being conducted in that language.

In the Sixth Form (Years 12 - 13) students have the luxury of their own form room and kitchen (a foretaste of university life!). They are encouraged to choose from a selection of A levels. They are also given practical help and advice on choosing the appropriate universities and courses for study at 18+. All students leave Yeoward fluently bilingual or multilingual.
