All children are required to have School Lunches. These
are cooked on the premises by Aramark. Aramark sends a menu home each month
by email. The children are also provided with a snack in the morning or
afternoon, depending on their lunch time. The snack consists of either
fruit, yoghurt, milk, biscuits or a sandwich. When the children go on a
school trip, Aramark provides the packed lunch.

Religion is an optional subject at I.S.M. in which Christian morals and doctrine are taught. In Reception and Year 1 Christian stories are told but most of the emphasis is on correct behaviour, the reasons for the same and respect for others in one’s society and environment. From Year 2 up there is more attention to Catholic doctrine, especially in Year 4 when pupils are prepared for First Communion. In Secondary, pupils can be prepared for Confirmation. There is a minimal charge for RE classes to pay for the services of the priests and use of the local parish church. Pupils who do not attend RE lessons have Citizenship as the alternative and parents are informed in the February and June reports of the topics covered.
ExcursionsAll classes take several excursions per year and the school meets the cost of the transport for these trips within city limits. Trips are usually related to the work pupils are doing in class and include trips to museums, theatres, parks, farms etc. We always send home a letter asking parents to give their permission for their child to go on the trip if it means taking a bus.
There are also residential Language, Geography and Biology trips organised sometimes over the year in Secondary, both in Spain or abroad. Recent trips have been to the Gredos Centre in the Sierra de Gredos (Geography and Biology), and to London.
Pupils in Years 7 to 9 go on an induction camp with their teachers and camp monitors in the hills near Madrid in September. This helps pupils to get to know each other, amongst other things.
An annual skiing trip is offered to pupils in Years 3 - 13 in February and a camping trip for KS2 pupils is arranged during the summer term.Summer School 2013
