The British School of Barcelona has starts the school year this week with the opening of a new center in the city of Barcelona. BSB City is the fourth campus of the international school, which already has three campuses, two in Castelldefels (BSB Castelldefels and BSB Nexus) and one in Sitges (BSB Sitges).
The new BSB campus is located in a modernist building in the Sarrià – Sant Gervasi district of Barcelona and has a capacity for up to 200 students from 3 to 10 years old. The school includes 500 square metres of outdoor learning areas and 750 square metres of purpose-built indoor space.
Expansion in Barcelona with the opening of BSB City
The excellent reputation of BSB added to the growing demand for places in international schools has led to the opening of the BSB City campus in the city of Barcelona, a project that is the result of an investment of 15 million euros by the international education group Cognita —of which BSB is part—, with more than 85 schools in 12 countries in Europe, South America and Asia.
This year, BSB City opens its doors at the “Foundation campus”, a historic building that has been completely renovated to provide inspiring, creative spaces for children in Early Years and Primary. For the 2023/24 school year, BSB City will expand with the opening of the main building also in Sarrià – Sant Gervasi, near John F. Kennedy Square, offering 750 new places for 3-to-18-year-old students.
A well-established international education with a student-centered approach
BSB City draws on our expertise of over 60 years in education. Our well-established, proven approach to teaching and learning as well as our academic excellence have led our school to be considered one of the most important and prestigious international schools in Spain.
Through an individualized approach to teaching and learning that goes far beyond the academic curriculum, we focus on the development of learning habits and future skills in order to prepare students to become global citizens. This personalised educational model allows students to choose their own activities and subjects throughout all educational stages, and to choose from two international Pre-University pathways: the British curriculum and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, along with the validation of the Spanish Bachillerato. An overarching student support and wellbeing programme throughout students’ school life is also a distinct feature of The British School of Barcelona.
Thanks to this framework of academic personalisation and culture of wellbeing, this year our students of Secondary and Pre-University have achieved the highest results ever in the history of BSB, with a 100% pass-rate on the IB Diploma with scores above the world average. These exceptional results have allowed our students to gain places in some of the best universities in the world, both in Spain and abroad.
