I came to this school 6 years ago. At the time I did not speak any Spanish and my English was questionable to say the least. I can safely say that I am very grateful to BCG for making me the person I am today. For these 6 years, that now seems have flown by way too quickly, BCG became my second home. What I love about BCG the most is its individualistic approach to each student, as cliched as it might sound, the whole school indeed feels like one big family and I already beginning to miss my time here after only 1 month after graduation.

We were sure about wanting to change our life style and live close to the beach. But we were very unsure about changing the school of our 2 girls (6&3 years old). All was uncertain and not all the reviews we had read about BCG made us feel really comfortable. But we decided to take the risk and we can say that we don’t regret it! It is a pleasure to bring/pick up the girls and feel always so warmly welcome by all the staff! The teachers are so professional and truly caring! The children are learning a lot in an integrating environment full of fun and creative activities. The community of families is very friendly and we feel the school truly cares about our opinions! Our girls are very happy! So we are!

The school is making many positive changes every year, especially in the communication / structure and the academic activities which have grown a lot in the last few years. The children are super happy and feel very committed with their school.

As a mother who has been part of the school since the beginning, I can say that it's great to be in an open-minded school that listens to the children and families needs in such a wonderful landscape. I'm glad to be part of a foward-thinking school.

The school is TOP in facilities, organisation, teachers, staff, academics and overall making students happy. The values are very strong and they focus in making our children good citizens of the world, with respect to others, nature and community. In my humble opinion I would like them to improve the sports in general for young children's of primary so they can develop stronger in a sport that they like. Summer camp is amazing experience and this is my son's third year and I will continue to take him there for years to come. Thank you to all the staff in the school and the Principle for making this happening.

Our children started attending BCG this year and we are very happy with our choice so far. Since the first visit, the school facilities have attracted our attention, with lots of green and open space. Now with the opening of their new building, the facilities are even more complete. Despite the large facilities it feels like a small school, where everyone knows each other by name, which contributed to my children quickly feeling welcomed and integrated. The dedication of the teachers with whom we had contact so far is also something we would like to highlight.

Muy contento de la elección que hicimos en su día para la educación de nuestros hijos (hoy, 12 y 14 años). Estamos en el British College of Gavà desde su fundación y a día de hoy puedo decir que el colegio ha cubierto mis expectativas con nota: muy buen ambiente, excelentes instalaciones en un entorno espectacular, buenos profesores (algunos brillantes) y como consecuencia, buen nivel educativo. Y para mi, lo más importante: mis hijos van felices al colegio y están motivados. A día de hoy además contamos con el liderazgo de un Director contrastado que tiene las cosas claras y el colegio sigue mejorando cada día su equipo e instalaciones, siempre atento a las sugerencias de los padres. Felicidades Sr. Valverde.! Cumplió su promesa ...

Tengo 2 niños de 5 y 6 años. Desde el inicio empezaron aquí el colegio y a día de hoy estoy muy contenta. Se trata de un cole pequeño ( en número de alumnos) y muy familiar. Nos conocemos todos y hasta la persona que se encarga del cuidado de las instalaciones, conoce los nombres de todos y cada uno de los niños. Las clases tienen pocos alumnos , y aunque al principio veía que era una desventaja, pues veo que sobre todo en cursos pequeños, el tener una ratio tan baja, hace que la enseñanza pueda ser más personalizada y cuidada. El nuevo edificio está por estrenar y será un punto más a favor del cole en cuanto a instalaciones y mejoras. Pero además, el colegio sigue estando en un entorno con mucho espacio verde y al aire libre. Mis hijos tienen leves necesidades educativas especiales , que dentro de no ser graves, requieren que estén muy encima de ellos y así está siendo. Están pendientes de ellos, de sus problemas y tratan de sacar los mejor de ellos en cada momento sin presión, pero sin relajación. Sobre el profesorado, hasta ahora creo que he tenido mucha suerte pero supongo que dependerá de cada niño y del feeling que tenga con cada profesor. Aún quedan cosas por rodar, propias de un cole semi nuevo pero sin duda, me compensan las cosas positivas sobre las pocas negativas. Algo importante a destacar es que al ser cole pequeño, los padres son escuchados y el colegio siempre está dispuesto a escuchar y hacer mejoras. Sobre el alumnado y profesorado, hay rotación porque en los coles internacionales unos van y otros vienen , pero esto es algo con lo que ya contábamos.

School with modern and top facilities. What i like the most in the school is the nice atmosphere for the students and the close relation between school and parents. Inclusive school where each single student is considered as an individual and not as a number. Good balance between academic curriculum and values teaching. The teachers team is very professional and always ready to help.

Pues a mi me parece un colegio fantástico, he visto personalmente las instalaciones, no se trata de un colegio al uso en el que toda la parcela está edificada, sino un colegio con zonas abiertas y deportivas, están edificando una nueva área y me parece un colegio espectacular.
