The SEK-STELLAR Programme is a comprehensive programme for high-achieving students. We have been running this programme at SEK Santa Isabel International School for almost 30 years.

Our activities are designed according to the age and evolutionary development of our students as well as their educational needs. The specific educational proposals focus on:

  • Enrichment of curricular contents (extensions and curricular adaptations).
  • Acceleration, flexibility, always with the authorisation of the Spanish Ministry of Education. Context enrichment.
  • The Stellar Programme aims to ensure high-achieving students develop their potential in the company of other children with the same academic talents without missing out on day-to-day interaction with their peers in the normal school environment.

Our objectives are:

  • Ensure personal development and that students are able to continue to fit in at school.
  • Prevent behavioural dysfunctions and motivational problems caused finding normal curricular subjects too easy.
  • Promote cognitive development.
  • Reinforce the use of learning strategies.
  • Develop relational skills among peers.


All this is achieved through activities scheduled throughout the academic year, such as: Chess, Philosophy for Children, Mind Lab, Architecture, Robotics, Creative Arts, etc.

In addition, we organise school outings to carry out activities of interest.

We also offer families advice and provide monitoring and follow-up of their high-achieving children, in addition to face-to-face tutorials.

Our teachers are experts in teaching and managing high-achievers, having completed the university expert course in HIGH-ACHIEVERS, INTELLIGENCE AND NEUROPSYCHOLOGY, taught at University Camilo José Cela. In addition, our team is also advised by psychologists specialised in high-achieving students.

The Stellar Programme is held every Saturday morning from 10:00 to 14:00 at SEK EL CASTILLO International School.
