Three Campuses, Two Towns - One School
The three campuses of The British School of Barcelona are located in two adjoining seaside towns that lie south of Barcelona. Both are welcoming towns to expats from all around the world.
The Town of Sitges
Sitges is a beautiful Mediterranean coastal town located in the Garraf area. Sitges benefits from a year-round mild climate that makes it possible for our students to enjoy outdoor activities almost every day of the year.
Sitges is a convivial town which welcomes families from around the world. It is a vibrant, multicultural town, where numerous world-renowned cultural and festive events take place throughout the year, such as the International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia and the International Barcelona-Sitges Vintage Car Rally.
The town also offers a wide range of sports and water-sport activities, including annual events such as the Half Marathon, the Triathlon, the Beach Rugby 7s championship, sailing regattas, and other sports tournaments.
The BSB Sitges campus can be reached easily from Barcelona, Tarragona or the Barcelona-El Prat Airport by public transportation (train and bus). The British School of Barcelona also provides transport services to and from any of our campuses.
The Town of Castelldefels
Castelldefels is a beautiful seaside town that lies south of Barcelona. The Mediterranean climate, with year-round sunshine and mild temperatures, allows our students to take full advantage of our open-air facilities and the wonderful combination of mountains and coastline which Castelldefels has to offer.
Castelldefels is an increasingly popular destination for expat families due to the proximity to Barcelona. The sports legacy of the Barcelona Olympic Games is evident in its world-class sports facilities. Our school occupies a strategic location, just a stone’s throw from several sports clubs such as the Olympic Canal, the Andrés Gimeno Tennis Club and the Granvia Mar Sports Club, where many school and after-school sport activities take place.
Castelldefels has a full range of cultural events going on, which includes plays, movies in their original language, dance and talks. In addition, due to the proximity to Barcelona we can also enjoy the wide variety of museums, theatres and other cultural venues for educational purposes.
Both campuses (The British School of Barcelona Castelldefels and International Pre-University Centre) lie within easy access to the centre of Barcelona, and are just a 10-minute drive from the airport. They are also easily accessible by public transport, with direct connections by both train and bus to the centre of Barcelona. The British School of Barcelona also provides transport services to and from any of our campuses.
