St George is a private British school, located in the upper side of Barcelona city, with classes from two years of age. We have students from more than 40 different nationalities who from the first day, learn English with native teachers. We believe in helping each child reach their own maximum potential and giving them the tools they will need to excel in their personal and professional lives.
“Great school with great values. We are fortunate to have Miss King as Head, along with a motivated team of teachers that strive to enable each pupil to reach their best. Congratulations for creating, in record time, a Fantastic School (in capital letters!). From a very happy mother, both with the school, the management and the staff”
“We moved to Barcelona in 2017 and after looking at many schools, we knew we had found the right school for our son who was moving from a British school in year two. The personalised teaching of our children and the family / community feel were immediately felt and they have enriched our experience of living in the City. The children are incredibly well educated with a focus on the British curriculum but also blended with Spanish and Catalan language and cultural skills. The community that the school creates enables a smooth transition for both the children and their families. We have never looked back and are delighted that our daughter has now started in pre-nursery, joining her brother at St George”.
“The school values, the warmth of the teachers and the fact that we immediately felt like being a part of The St George Community is the reason why we chose this school. When our little girl age 4 came to St George School, she only new Danish as her mother tongue and we were of course nervous about how she would adapt not knowing any English. The heartfelt warmth of the teachers and the kids knowing their school values made our move to Barcelona even more easy.”
“We could not be happier with the decision to have our children attend St. George! Our family’s relocation to Spain from the U.S. has been seamless as a result of the children loving their new school. It feels like a big family. It feels like home.”
“We feel lucky to have chosen St George school for our children. The school has a family environment in which they feel safe and happy. We value their passionate and motivated teachers who try to develop the maximum potential of our children. Also St. George has the commitment to transmit their values every day such as respect, responsibility, fairness, kindness and personal best. We love the multicultural atmosphere in the school, how fluently our children speak in English and the importance that the school gives to the arts. It’s an education that seeks excellence in an environment of love, respect and enthusiasm.”
Students follow the full British National Curriculum, as they would if they were in the UK. We follow all the fundamental principles of British education while taking advantage of the richness of the local environment and culture. This multicultural context is what makes their education different as they complete their studies with compulsory subjects such as Castilian Language and Catalan and Social Studies which are taught weekly in different courses. Thanks to their complete training in both systems, they can choose whether their university studies are going abroad or whether they prefer to stay in Spain.
Our teachers are native speakers and are qualified to teach the British National Curriculum. They are committed and dedicated professionals, enthusiastic about the subjects they teach. In addition, they work tirelessly to help students reach their full potential and provide a personalised educational programme. Our aim is to instil in students an enthusiasm for discovery and to ensure that they are passionate about learning.
One of our commitments is the constant search for excellence among our students and among the educational community. The school’s academic level is high and we create the right conditions for effective learning through clear codes of conduct, based on respect for peers, staff, facilities and the environment.
We know that each student is unique, has different abilities, passions and different ways of learning. That is why it is so important for us to respect their identity, support them in their needs and maximize their skills, thus getting the best out of each of them. Our students feel happy and safe at school. Working on the confidence and self-esteem of each child is our priority so they grow up in an environment where they feel not only that each child matters, but that they are a key to the smooth running of the school.
Our school has specialized music, art and computer classrooms, as well as personalized support classrooms, library and laboratories. In addition, an auditorium, green areas and sports covering an area of more than one hectare of land.
