Facilities

The BSB Castelldefels is divided into three distinct areas for Early Years, Primary and Secondary. Each part of the school has its own entrance and its own distinct and age-appropriate learning and play and social spaces.

In Early Years this includes classrooms with direct access to outside play spaces where the Continuous Provision framework can be further developed.

In Primary, learning takes place in well-equipped classrooms and support and specialist rooms. The Primary school also has a well-shaded play area with enhanced playground facilities.

In Secondary, there are faculty areas with dedicated rooms for all subjects, including IT; nine modern science laboratories; a purpose-built art block; a large, purpose-built music department with a main teaching room and five practise rooms, and a large two-storey newly-designed Learning Resource Centre.

There are also some shared facilities across The British School, including:

  • A 376-seat theatre
  • Purpose-built dining rooms
  • A medical room
  • A new study garden
  • Sports areas: an indoor gymnasium, three outdoor multi-sports courts and a multi-game artificial turf pitch

Adjacent Sports Stadium
