Placement Information

The Holy Mary Catholic School is based in Madrid near the Santiago Bernabeu football stadium. It was roughly a 10min walk from the santiago bernabeu metro stop.
The placement was an interesting experience, this school was a private catholic school. There are two aspects to the school, we were based in the Key Stage 1 we these was our preference. The teachers were very useful and they provided us with all the relavant information we required.   

 

 

Accomodation

Below is the website we used to book our accomodation in 'Plaza De Castilla' which took 15 minutes to get to the placment Via Metro.

Transport

The main method of transport used in Madrid was the Metro (cheapest), we brought a weekly ticket for 34 euro's
