Parents' Workshops

Our interactive parents' workshops provide helpful tips and resources to assist parents in learning how to create conditions that support learning at home

During the school year The British School of Barcelona offers parents a series of interactive workshops which provide useful and workable tips and strategies on how to help children at home.

The workshops consist of a short presentation led by a teacher specialist followed by group discussion and practical exercises.

Most of the workshops are held simultaneously in English and Spanish. Check the details of each workshop.

All the workshops are free of charge.

Groups are limited to a maximum of 30 participants.

Childcare is available at no charge.
