BSB Ranked among the Best International Schools in Spain

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

The newspaper’s annual ranking has singled out BSB 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, official examinations results and university entrance, accreditations & inspection reports, quality standards, teaching staff, languages taught, ICT and Science resources, provision of learning support, sports facilities, co-curricular and after-school activities, medical service, nutrition and school transport, among others.

This distinction is the result of the continuous improvements being made in all areas of the school, 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 four Cognita schools in Spain have also been shortlisted in this ranking: Three share our status as Best International Schools in Spain, namely 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.
