Teacher of IT and Computing – BSB Castelldefels
The British School of Barcelona
The British School of Barcelona (BSB) is a great school in a great 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.
Nearly 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 state-of –the art Pre-University Centre (Nexus), a theatre, new science laboratories and 2019 will see the opening of a full-sized AstroTurf sports pitch and sports stadium.
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.
