FORBES lists BSB among The Best 50 Schools in Spain

The prestigious magazine FORBES has included The British School of Barcelona in first ever Best 50 Schools in Spain list.

Based on 36 criteria, our international British school has been selected for our overarching culture of wellbeing and personalised support, our Digital Strategy -including our 1-to-1 devices for all students and EdTech programme- and our CPD programme for all our teaching staff.

 

             

 

#18 The British School of Barcelona

“This all-through British School with a UK curriculum offers an educational experience to students from Early Years to Pre-University. Its educational method is based in a culture of support and wellbeing, where students are encouraged to explore their potential, and are prepared to face the demands of a world in constant change. They count with an exhaustive student safeguarding policy, dealing with bullying, digital safety, among others.

Among its pillars we find the implementation of the 1-to-1 Devices Programme (where each student gets their own digital device), learning platforms and cutting-edge teaching software, seeking their teaching staff’s specialised professional development, as well as training students in how to use technology correctly and a digital safety programme focused on the students’ safeguarding and wellbeing.

All of this allows for a greater flexibility and efficiency, helping the teacher impart more personalised teaching and better organise their work.”

 

The 36 criteria

This exclusive list has been created by a committee of expert educators, psychologists and education professionals selected by this respected magazine, who have evaluated over 300 schools based on 36 criteria. The score has taken into account factors such as student support, academic results, educational offer, cocurricular activities, facilities, student’s safety and wellbeing, among others.

 

Cognita Schools also included in the FORBES list

We are delighted to share this recognition with two other schools of our Cognita family: The English Montessori School (TEMS) and Mirasur School in Madrid.
