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.

They form part of a learning community which constantly strives to improve and grow.
