About The British School of Barcelona (BSB)


The British School of Barcelona (BSB) was founded in 1958, with campuses in Sitges and Castelldefels. The BSB School has always provided a great independent international education for our students. All are encouraged to become global citizens; self-confident enough to express and discuss their beliefs and opinions, whilst demonstrating a deep understanding and tolerance of different cultures. The British School of Barcelona follows the English National Curriculum and employ up-to-date, research based pedagogical approaches to ensure our students develop high level learning habits and skills.

The British School of Barcelona campus in Castelldefels offers modern and spacious premises which create an optimal setting for effective teaching and learning. The campus is within easy reach from the centre of Barcelona, and is just a 10-minute drive from the airport. The newly revamped BSB campus of The British School of Barcelona, in Sitges, offers modern, thoughtfully-designed, newly equipped facilities to provide the very best learning environment for Early Years and Primary aged children.

After two years, we have decided to leave school. BSB Castelldefels in not what it was. They only brag about how good they think they're, but the reality is that they don't reach educarional excellence. Currently, you're just a number with money.

Since our arrival 18 months ago, we continue to be impressed by the school. Our boys are so happy each morning, love their Teachers, friends and the variety of subjects and after school classes available to them. We are delighted to be part of the BSB community

This money based school only thinks about the Financial results given to the owners (investment fund) and give no importance to the education, they have severe bullying problems unsolved and rotation of teachers and students talk for itself. Don’t trust the looks. It’s rotten in the inside. Ask for the real grades of leaving pupils and you will see how they manipulate the truth. Just look a bit deeper and your eyes will open. Terrible value for money. This covid crisis has been the last drop to show how a bad management affects a school.

This is by far the best school in Barcelona offering and exciting curriculum which the children can really engage with. If you want teachers who will go that extra mile then BSB is a great choice. My children are achieving very high levels. The new leadership has had a notable impact on standards.

The school has been doubling in size over the last two years, and, although the infrastructures are exceptional, this change has been bringing quite some bullying problems and low academic results (especially very low IB results).
