BSB Ranked among the Best in Spain

The British School of Barcelona are proud to announce that BSB has been included again in the list of The Best Schools in Spain by the prestigious national newspaper “El Mundo”.

The newspaper’s annual ranking has singled out The British School of Barcelona among the best 30 international schools in Spain, among only four selected in the whole of Catalonia. This is a recognition of the outstanding performance of our school.

“El Mundo” ranks schools with an overall score based on 27 specific criteria which assess over a thousand centres in terms of their educational model, facilities and resources. This means that several quality-assurance indicators have been taken into account when evaluating BSB, including the provision of an all-through education, recognition awards, quality standards, teaching staff, languages taught, co-curricular and after-school activities, ICT and Science resources, sports facilities, medical service, nutrition, school transport, school fees, among many others.

This distinction is the result of the continuous improvements being made in all areas of the International School Barcelona, and credit to the commitment of our excellent staff, the contributions of the entire school community and the continuous support of the Cognita Schools Group, whose educational model (#CognitaWay) incorporates everything we do and all that we hope to achieve at BSB for the benefit of our students.

Other five Cognita international schools in Spain have also been shortlisted in this ranking: Four share our status as Best International Schools in Spain, namely British School of Valencia, Hastings School and The English Montessori School (TEMS) in Madrid, and El Limonar International School Murcia, whilst our third school in Madrid, Colegio Europeo de Madrid (CEM), has qualified as one of the 30 Remarkable Schools in Spain, ranking in the upper half of the list.
