At The British School of Barcelona we believe in a holistic education which ensures that every child has the opportunity to develop academically and beyond. Our vision is that our pupils should become successful lifelong learners, confident individuals and responsible global citizens.
Our Enrichment Programme ensures that we provide this through a wide ranging number of activities to stimulate curiosity, independence and personal endeavour well beyond the academic curriculum.
The three pillars of our Enrichment Programme are:
Sessions aimed to monitor academic performance and help pupils develop in areas such as critical thinking, expression of opinions, self-confidence, leadership qualities, initiative and public speaking skills.
Assemblies are weekly gatherings of all or part of the school community for a shared purpose. They act as a medium for dealing with matters of great significance.
Weekly co-curricular clubs that take place during the school day to support the development of a range of skills and attributes by focusing on areas such as sport, music, drama, sciences, art, debating and fundraising, among many others.
The combination of all of these, together with other co-curricular activities, such as peripatetic music lessons, sports tournaments, talent competitions, educational trips and performances, and fundraising events, contribute to our students’ development of spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of an all-round education, as well as physical well-being, and help maximise their personal and academic potential.
