New campus in Barcelona City

Opening September 2021

The British School of Barcelona is an all-through British International School for children aged 3-18.

Welcome to BSB City

An educational experience in an international environment that inspires young people to step out into a world that is constantly changing, with the confidence and resilience to embrace every challenge.

With a focus on personalised care and support, we believe in a tailored education for every student. With the British Curriculum we allow our students to adjust their studies by choosing their curriculum pathway; A-levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB).

We develop each individual’s social, emotional, cognitive and digital skills, and instil great learning habits, so they are ready to take on the world and find their passions.

Be World Ready


At BSB, we focus on the care and support for each individual, as we understand how important it is for children to be happy and feel safe. We want our students to leave BSB as confident young adults, but we also want them to be prepared to take on the world. Because the world will not judge them only for what they know, but also for who they are.

At The British School of Barcelona we have been inspiring young people for more than 60 years

All through education

3-18 years

Early Years

Early Years is the bedrock of education. It’s a unique short timespan where the brain is most malleable, and language is best acquired. 

We offer an educational journey that lasts until 18. Evidence tells us that if we get it right in the early years, we can expect to see children thrive throughout school and their adult lives.


All subjects are taught through a thematic and creative approach, using many different teaching strategies with the children working individually, co-operatively in small or large groups, and at times as a whole class. 

At The British School of Barcelona we believe that learning should be meaningful and we provide opportunities to promote pupils’ moral, social and cultural development.


Students have specialist teachers in each subject area and a form teacher who provides tutorial support and guidance, and who is responsible for monitoring their overall progress and well-being


Our educational model at this stage aims to prepare students for the real world in an environment that allows them to develop 21st century skills, through learning techniques that encourage creativity and innovation, resilience, lifelong learning and unlearning for continuous growth.

The British Curriculum is a highly personalised programme that allows students to tailor their studies by choosing their curriculum pathway; A-levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB)
