A highlight from BSB? I would to highlight the level of teaching staff, as I managed to enjoy every subject I took for my A-Level course thanks to the learning format the school has. The study periods were also a key part to my last two years as I was able to catch up on work and start on new assignments.
A memoir? My best memoir of BSB could be the trip to London (PGL), back in Year 6, where not only did we visit the city but also took part in many activities on campus with all our friends during 5 days. My last school day was also a day to remember. I had to take my last Maths A-Level exam in the morning, and in the evening I was already graduating and saying goodbye to what has been part of my life for 15 years. I was excited to leave and start a new life at university, but didn’t know if I was ready or not! What are you enjoying most at present? I am currently enjoying most my university course (Bachelor in Business Administration at ESADE) and very happy of having met amazing people both from Spain and other countries. A tip for Pre-University students? My tip would be to work as hard as they can for the last two years as in a future, they will be grateful for having made the most out of it and having entered the university and the degree of their dreams. Claudia Ibarz Graduate Class of 2017 BSB student from Nursery to graduation

The British School of Barcelona is grateful to be able to call upon the expert guidance of Ms Fidelma Murphy, who serves as The British School’s Chair of Governors and has over 25 years of experience at the forefront of International Education in Germany, Spain, Ireland and the Middle East.

As Chair of Governors, Ms. Murphy works closely with the Principal in the appointment of staff, monitors the school’s performance in a range of areas and works as a critical friend to support us as we strive for excellence in everything we do.

Ms. Murphy comments: ‘It is a privilege to be the Chair of Governors for The British School of Barcelona. The students at BSB are a joy to interact with; they are open minded global citizens who are actively involved in the learning process. They are reflective communicators who embrace opportunities to develop their learning skills.

Staff at The British School of Barcelona are committed to designing personalised learning programmes tailored to their pupils´ needs. They form part of a learning community which constantly strives to improve and grow. The progress pupils make in their academic studies and in their interpersonal skills, bears comparison with the very best schools to be found anywhere in the world.’

Ms. Murphy has extensive experience in International Schools and was part of a start-up team in the Outstanding Schools Programme in the Middle East.

Ms. Murphy was a Principal at international schools, an IB school visitor and an examiner for Cambridge Examinations. Fidelma joined Cognita in August 2018.
