British School in Barcelona
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, from the first day, learn English with native teachers. 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 atmosphere makes every student’s education unique as they also study the compulsory subjects of Spanish and Catalan Languages and Humanities on a daily basis. Due to the pathways we offer, our students can choose to further their studies overseas or remain in Spain.
Native English Teachers
Our teachers are all qualified and are 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 instil in the children a lifelong love of learning.
The academic standard of our school is high and there is a serious approach to study with a determination to get the best out of each student. We create the conditions for effective learning by insisting that all children follow clear codes of conduct, based on respect for fellow pupils, staff, property and the environment.
Getting the best
of each student
Every 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 and helping to develop 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 elements in building an outstanding school.
The best facilities
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 hecra. It has an auditorium, more outdoor space, green areas and bigger sports facilities.
The admission process is open throughout the year
We organise individual school tours all year round. We encourage you to come and visit.
Do you want your children to have fun during the summer while learning English at the same time? At St. George they will have a great time experiencing a range of activities including sports, workshops, arts and crafts, water games, cooking and music. Students are immersed in English as all of our teachers are native speakers.
“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.”
