St. George, the British School of Catalunya
St. George is a private British school, located in the upper side of Barcelona city, with classes from two years old. We have students from more than 40 different nationalities who follow the English National Curriculum as if they were in a school in the U.K. For us, the most important thing is that each child reaches their own maximum potential and aims for excellence so that they have all the tools they need to excel in the future.
The students follow the English National Curriculum as if they were in a school in the U.K. We follow all the key principles of a British education, whilst taking advantage of the environment and culture around us. This multicultural environment makes students´education unique as they also study the compulsory subjects of Spanish Lengua, Catalan and Sociales on a daily basis. Thanks to the pathways we offer, our students can choose to further their studies overseas or remain in Spain.
St. George teachers are all qualified and native English speakers. They are committed and dedicated professionals, enthusiastic about their subjects. They work tirelessly to support the students in developing their potential and are trained to provide an individualised educational programme. Our aim is to instill in the children a lifelong love of learning.
Each student is unique, has different strengths, passions and a different way of learning. That’s why it is so important for us to respect every individual, supporting them with any weakness and developing their maximum potential. Our children feel happy and secure in the school and it is our priority to try and build each child’s confidence and self-esteem. We create an environment where every individual child is important and we know that these principles are key element to build an outstanding school.
St. George has its own special atmosphere. We want pupils to appreciate the joy of learning and to become decent, tolerant and well-educated people. We want St. George British School, Barcelona, to make a real impact in our pupil’s lives, helping them become independent thinkers and life-long learners. Every child really does matter to us.
Our school has specialised classrooms for music, art and ICT, as well as classrooms for personalised support, libraries and science laboratories. Next academic year we are moving to a very close location, just five minutes from where we are now. The new premises are located in a bigger extension of land with over one hectare.
