Welcome to the English Montessori School (TEMS)

We are a vibrant British private school based in Madrid, offering a tailor-made, holistic education for boys and girls, aged 3 to 18.


“The English Montessori School was founded in 1973 as a small school offering a Montessori style of education. Since then the school has never stopped growing, we teach the English Nation Curriculum, integrating the Montessori values and the obligatory Spanish subjects of language and humanities. This combination prepares our pupils for entry into the best universities and for the demands of today’s society.”
