Incorporation of Dr. Javier Urra to the British School Alzira, Xàtiva & Gandia team, and appointment of José Tortosa as Director of Quality Assurance & Improvement

The British School Alzira, Xàtiva & Gandia Group will be the first school in Spain to create a “Department of Emotional and Mental Health: Prevention and Intervention“, which will be led by Dr. Javier Urra, in collaboration with our Psychopedagogical Office.

This new area is aimed at teachers, parents and pupils, with whom various workshops and specific sessions will be held throughout the school year, both face-to-face and online. In addition, Dr. Urra will provide significant support for the Psychopedagogical Office, in terms of specific cases of students who require more specific help or support.

Dr. Urra visited us last Monday 6th February with the purpose of getting to know first hand the staff of our schools and their students, and the result of this visit, in his own words: “was excellent, and it is an honour to become part of the team”.

We have also created a new post in the organisation of our schools, which will help to further advance the quality and excellence of our curriculum. José Tortosa has been appointed as Director of Academic Quality Assurance & Enhancement (AQAE).

Amongst many other duties, the Director of Academic Quality Assurance & Enhancement is responsible for the operational management and support of academic standards and quality enhancement at British School Alzira, Xàtiva and Gandia, overseeing the academic quality assurance functions. We are convinced that with his work and that of the whole team at British School Alzira, Xàtiva & Gandia Group we will achieve results of greater excellence in the pedagogical environment of our schools.
