Severo Ochoa School is a plurilingual secondary school in English and French. situated in the outskirts of the city of San Juan de Aznalfarache, 4 kms away from the capital city, Seville, in Andalucía, Spain.
Our school provides compulsory secondary education, non compulsory A-level and two vocational training programmes: nursing and administrative management (intermediate degree). A higher level of vocational studies in administration and finances was implemented in September 2015.
There is also a curricular diversification programme of two academic courses for those students with special education needs or in danger of social exclusion so that they can finish their graduation in secondary education and continue in one of our two vocational studies lines and thus reducing dropout rates and make it possible for them to be incorporated into the labour market.
There is a great variety of students regarding age, since we have many educational levels. There is also a great variety in terms of different ethnic groups, since we have inmigrant students coming from South America, Eastern Europe, and Africa. Our school is also an integration school, having a number of around 20 students with different special educational needs who attend the integration classroom as part of their weekly schedule from an early stage.
San Juan de Aznalfarache has a population of around 21600 people. The school neighbouring area is inhabited by working class families of a middle and low social and economic background. Unemployment is still high in our area, around 3800 unemployed people according to the Spanish National Institute of Statistics.
The town’s proximity to the capital city and its underground line to Seville make San Juan to be a dormitory town and there are some students coming from neighbouring municipalities, who use the school bus.
