Our Students

Colegio Hispano Británico Lanzarote

About some of our students

1986 was the first year that one of our students reached Oxford. Since then there have been many outstanding achievements by our students.

In 2000 one of our students, a girl of 16 passed 6 A levels and went on to become possibly the youngest person ever to graduate as a veterinary surgeon.

In 2003 the school was featured in the Times Educational Supplement for the outstanding achievement of two of our students, one of whom, Rachael Faye Hill became the youngest student ever to graduate as a Doctor in medicine in Britain. The following quote is from the article in the daily mail: “…she attended the English-speaking Colegio Hispano Británico, where teachers recognised her potential and allowed her to skip school years. ‘I started school at the normal age, but then jumped classes as they put more emphasis on ability than age,’ said Rachael. As a result, she ended up sitting her GCSEs at 13 and, to the envy of teenagers across the land, completed her A-levels – and secondary school education – at just 15.” For the full article see: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1290155/Britains-youngest-doctor-On-wards-just-21.html#ixzz1JK5U7Jph

Since the early noughties the school has obtained Cambridge Outstanding Learner Awards for best in the world, best in Spain or high achiever awards.

In 2015 five students obtain the highest overall GCSE results in the world and we received a letter from the queen Elizabeth and also from the Minister of State for schools congratulating the students and school. These results were reported in the Guardian newspaper: https://www.theguardian.com/education/2015/aug/20/gcses-results-2015-english-pass-rate-rises-jump-a-c-grades

In 2023 one of our students managed to get the best ever results at the school and put herself amongst the best in the world with 15 A* from 17 GCSE’s the other two results being a A and a B.
