Bellver International College in Cala Mayor, the oldest English school in Spain, has been granted International Fellowship Centre Status by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), one of the world's leading providers of educational qualifications and assessments. The award is in recognition of the school's close association and loyalty to Cambridge University examination assessments and for its contribution in furthering national recognition of the Cambridge qualifications in Spain at Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE), this is the CIE's equivalent of the I.B. As a result of the award, Bellver College joins an elite group of international schools to enjoy the status of a Cambridge Fellowship Centre and also greatly increases their chances of obtaining one of the CIE's UK University scholarship for a finishing 6th form student. Director of Bellver International College, Mark Muirhead said yesterday, To become one of the first international schools to receive this status from Cambridge is a great honour. It is clearly an endorsement and recognition of our position as an important education provider in the local community and to our pupils studying for higher education qualifications. We are very proud to become one of the very few CIE Fellowship Centres; to be the first and only one in Spain, one of three in Europe and one of eight in the world.
