We are delighted to share that a reviewer from The Good Schools Guide International visited The British School of Barcelona this year, and that, as a result of their successful visit, they have published an impartial, straight-talking and thoroughly researched school review for each of our campuses.
The Good Schools Guide is independent, forthright, well-informed and unbiased, which gives it unique authority and has earned the trust of parents and educational organisations worldwide. With 35 years of experience and over 1,450 reviews, it is a helpful guide for families who are considering the best education for their children.
Each school is selected on merit alone, following a rigorous inspection and decision-making process. This accreditation is, therefore, a kitemark of our school’s good governance, high standards and ethos.
The review is a wonderful description of BSB. We are pleased to see so many strengths of BSB’s unique offering noticed by the reviewer and highlighted in the report, depicting the outstanding learning experience that we offer to each and every child by combining a strong passion for learning with the spirit of an innovative curriculum design. We are particularly proud of the Good Schools Guide’s summary:
‘Playing, exploring, creating and thinking freely in their own way is the basis of early years education and is the start of a journey of growth and development which continues through the school.’
The review covers various aspects of a school from student achievements and academic development, to learning support and approaches to teaching. It also includes an assessment of school facilities on offer, extra-curricular activities, wellbeing and pastoral support, university choices and much more.

We encourage prospective parents to come and see the school for themselves – please click here to arrange a private visit or to find out the date of our next open day.
BSB campuses: a review for each
As a multicampus international school, The Good Schools Guide has published a review of each of our campuses in addition to the general school review that you can find above these lines.
‘For many families the strongest element of the school is the sense of community, creating an ecosystem in which everyone has a part in the child’s development.’
‘Parents place a huge amount of trust in the school and are aware of the advantages the school offers over the system they went through.’
‘The move from the main Castelldefels campus to Nexus is viewed as an exciting change by students. Parents like the “controlled” freedom and independence and feel it eases the transition to university, teaching the students to be independent but with background support.’
‘Striking a balance with play and allowing the students to “just be children” and strong academics is evident from a young age. Parents feel the school offers the best of both worlds with no pressure to perform.’
