Caxton College is an independent British co-educational, day and boarding school for pupils between the ages of 1 to 18 years. It was founded in 1987 thanks to the initiative of a Valencian family. The school is accredited by both the English and Spanish educational authorities.

Caxton College is purpose built and stands in 26,000 m2 in the village of Puçol, just 19 km north of Valencia on the east coast of Spain. It is located halfway between the mountains and the sea, with a mild Mediterranean climate and extraordinary light. It is an open, multicultural school - a community without barriers where students from different continents come together creating an understanding and tolerant atmosphere.

Caxton College has on roll 1,200 students between the ages of 1 to 18. The British National Curriculum is imparted by a highly professional, experienced, British trained staff just as the obligatory Spanish subjects are taught by equally professional Spanish trained staff The students take SATS in Year 2, Year 6 and Year 9 and then go on to take IGCSEs at the age of 16. In the sixth form, from the ages of 16 to 18, the pupils take A levels and AS levels and also prepare the Spanish University Entrance Exam. The students at Caxton have an excellent record in their examination results, and this is an important facet of their education.

Individual and personalised attention for students is achieved through communication between students, teachers and parents. Moreover, the centre has an intensive programme for language support (in English and in Spanish) for those students who require it.

Caxton College has expanded its boarding facilities with two boarding options available to pupils of Secondary age both of which give the opportunity for a unique and unforgettable experience.

Boarding with families: the host families, carefully chosen and supervised, help the student adapt to his or her new environment, since the student forms a part of the family and shares in their experiences.

Boarding at Caxton College: the on-site facilities provide the opportunity to learn to live with classmates of different nationalities and to make new friends. The pupils are constantly supervised by the boarding school staff.

Both options offer the student a special and personalised monitoring programme. Parents receive a detailed report that gives academic as well as personal information about their child's progress on a monthly basis.

At Caxton College academic life is not our only concern: it is also accompanied by physical, cultural, artistic, social and moral development, as well as critical skills through the Personal, Social and Health Education Programme.

The school's magnificent facilities include a large gymnasium (500 m2), sports fields, tennis courts, short tennis courts, handball, basketball, volleyball and beach volley courts, roller skating area, semi-olympic swimming pool, science laboratories, a library with over 20,000 educational and leisure resources, IT laboratory, art room, music rooms etc.

Pupils can choose from a wide range of extracurricular activities which take place during the daytime, hence not interrupting the school bus service. The activities available to students include, judo, taekwondo, karate, football, volleyball, basketball, ballet, French, chess, piano, violin, music theory and many others.
