The upcoming opening of the BSB City Main Campus in Barcelona in September 2023 is one of our most exciting projects ever and a milestone in the history of The British School of Barcelona.
On 30th March, we were joined by some of our partners for what could be described as our first Pre-opening event to learn first-hand about our largest project ever. The event took place at the restaurant El Trapío, right opposite the BSB City Foundation Campus, and it brought together some of the best relocator agents, organisations, companies, nurseries, and senior members of most prestigious sports clubs in the city. The event started with a presentation by some members of the BSB Senior Leadership Team, including Mrs Katherine Monaghan, Headteacher of Early Years and Primary at the Foundation Campus, and Mr Jake Richardson, who has recently been appointed as Headteacher of Secondary and Pre-University of the BSB City Main Campus, after having led BSB Nexus as Director of Pre-University for the last five years. Guests were offered a tour of the BSB City Foundation Campus to find out more about how it has successfully established itself in the city as a family school for young children since its opening in September 2021. The networking cocktail afterwards was a fantastic opportunity to continue to get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere and explore how we can collectively support our families in settling in quickly and making new friends.
Their warm welcome into the city was most inspiring to say the least! We believe that the insights shared and the connections made will greatly benefit our attendees and we are excited to see the positive impact that it will have for our families.
We look forward to our next pre-opening event which will be announced shortly.
About BSB City
With more than 1700 students of 68 nationalities, BSB has a proud well-established reputation of 65 years for providing a world-class international education first in Castelldefels, then in Sitges and now in Barcelona. The interest of so many families in offering their children a BSB education close to their home inspired us to embark on this spectacular project which will see the light for the 2023-2024 academic year.
BSB City consists of two buildings in Sarrià-Sant Gervasi that together cover all the educational stages: the Foundation Campus (opened in 2021 for our youngest students in carrer de l’Esperança, 32, next to passeig de la Bonanova) and the Main Campus, which will open in September 2023 in carrer Lucà, 1, next to passeig de Sant Gervasi, and will extend our provision in Barcelona for students up to Pre-University. A dedicated school bus will connect both buildings.
