British School of Barcelona

The British School of Barcelona (BSB) is a great school in a wonderful location. We are an HMC school and were judged by BSO (British Schools Overseas) Inspection to be outstanding in many areas, including safeguarding, pupil welfare, pupil progress and outcomes.

BSB is a large, very popular school for children aged 3 to 18. Our curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum and we offer a wide range of GCSEs, A levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma, all alongside a significant enrichment programme. 

Over 1600 pupils from over 50 nationalities attend the school and over 250 staff work at BSB. We are based in two locations just outside the city of Barcelona – in Castelldefels, and in the cosmopolitan town of Sitges.

Significant investment in the school in recent years has seen the building of a Pre-University Centre (Nexus), a theatre, a new Learning Resource Center and a full-sized Astro Turf sports pitch and sports stadium.

The Location

The school enjoys a location to the south of Barcelona, one of the most vibrant, culturally rich cities in the world. Both the Castelldefels (Primary and Secondary) and the Sitges (Primary) campuses are minutes away from beautiful beaches and are excellently connected by public transport.
