The MEC-British Council Project

This is a joint initiative between the British Council and the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science which introduces a bi-lingual, bi-cultural curriculum in 57 primary state schools in Spain. The project is in its tenth year, and the first groups of children, now aged twelve and thirteen are clearly demonstrating the benefits of being taught a curriculum in both Spanish and English, where they study approximately the same number of hours each week.

Initially, 44 UK primary teachers were engaged by the Spanish Government to teach in schools. This number has now increased to 220, and gradually more Spanish and British teachers are being brought on board to teach a diverse curriculum in English which includes subject areas from both the Spanish and the English National Curriculum.

There are schools in the following provinces and towns: Albacete Asturias (Gijón & Oviedo), Ávila (Ávila & Arévalo), Badajoz, Baleares (Artá & Mahón), Burgos (Burgos & Briviesca), Cáceres, Cantabria (Santander), Ceuta, Ciudad Real (Ciudad Real & Valdepeñas), Cuenca, Guadalajara, Huesca (Huesca, Fraga, Monzón y Jaca), León (León and Astorga), Madrid (10 schools, most of them in the suburbs), Melilla, Murcia (Murcia & Cartagena), Navarra (Pamplona & Tudela) Palencia (Palencia & Guardo), Salamanca (Salamanca & Ciudad Rodrigo), Segovia, Soria, Teruel (Teruel & Alcorisa), Toledo (Toledo & Talavera de la Reina), Valladolid (Valladolid & Medina del Campo), Zamora (Zamora & Benavente), Zaragoza and Ejea (Zaragoza).

Our school is situated in the centre of the city of Monzón in the province of Huesca, in North East Spain. With a population of around 16000 it is a small but busy place, with a variety of industries and a major centre for agriculture and distribution.

Monzón Castle
Monzón Castle

The City has a long and rich history and the old town remains a labyrinth of narrow medieval streets which are overlooked and dominated by the huge 10th century Templar Castle and fortress.  Monzón castle preserves five big towers scattered in the parade ground. The walls of the keep (9th-10th C) combine boulders and ashlar works. The temple, the refectory, the bedroom outbuildings and the tower of James I stand around the keep.

The temple, with a defensive appearance, has an underground tunnel with an external exit, which is accessible from the apse. These magnificent grounds are completed with the stables, the guard post, the powder magazine, the rainwater cisterns, the corridors and the defensive batteries (18th C) of the artillery barracks.

Monzón’s old quarter includes Saint Mary’s Cathedral (12th C) -a monument of a great historical and artistic interest-, various museums, exhibition halls and Renaissance palaces.

Welcome to our new website!

vista general
Vista de Monzón y el colegio
This is the new website for the "Joaquín Costa" school in Monzón, Huesca.

We are a state school and since september 2006 have been part of the MEC - British Council bilingual project. We now have eight classes on the project - This year three 3-year-old classes have joined the two 4-year old classes and three 5 year old classes who are now on their second and third year learning through the integrated curriculum.

One of the objectives of the project is to increase and incorporate the use of new technology within the school community, and with this in mind we have rebuilt our school website using a content management system. This will enable us to add news, information and resources both regularly and easily. 

Although still at an early stage, users can already use the site to access school information such as: 

  • Events Diary
  • Timetables
  • School Lunch Menu
  • Downloadable school publications
  • Song lyrics
  • Links to online resourses used in the classroom
  • Photo Gallery
