Practical guide for new expats with children

Barcelona is a captivating, cosmopolitan, Mediterranean city. Barcelona combines beauty, an enviable climate, tourist attractions and a business-friendly side that welcomes you with open arms. It should come as no surprise that Barcelona is among the top European cities chosen by international companies. Many of the nearly thirty million people that visit us each year do so for professional reasons. Some decide to make Barcelona their home, and those with children are faced with the challenge of finding the right school for their family. Deciding on a school for your child could depend on their age, previous educational background, and languages spoken; how long you plan to live in Barcelona, and finances, among many other factors. Those with very young children can often see the advantage of having their children attend local schools for a few years. Many families that plan on settling in Barcelona opt to enrol their children in a school that follows the local curriculum, but also offers quality foreign-language teaching. For families that relocate with school-age children, finding an international school that follows the same curriculum as their home country can be the most important aspect. The languages spoken at home or during previous schooling will also affect their decision. Cost can also be a decisive factor, and finding the perfect school might condition where you want to live. As each family is different, each family will make choices reflecting its own priorities and preferences. This guide provides key information to make this decision-making process as simple as possible. In Barcelona and the surrounding metropolitan area there is a wide variety of quality options in terms of schooling, including the more than 40 schools featured here that could be of special interest to the expat community. Having international schools is one of the keys to attracting foreign talent and clearly an asset that helps strengthen the Barcelona brand. Primary and secondary education constitute an investment in society’s future. Education is a key tool for economic development and competitiveness, and plays an essential role in social cohesion and the integration of residents from around the world.

Types of Schools

In Barcelona, as in the rest of Catalonia, there are three main types of schools to become familiar with:

  • Public school (escuela pública). Publicly funded, tuition-free, secular, and owned by the government. The state curriculum is approved by the Catalan Ministry of Education. State-organised enrolment is in spring and is based on your catchment area and other factors.
  • State-subsidised private school (escuela concertada). These schools are privately owned and run, and may be secular or non-secular. Tuition is subsidised by the government. The curriculum is also approved by the Catalan Ministry of Education and these schools share the state-organised enrolment process with the public schools.
  • Private school (escuela privada). While the curriculum (aims, contents, teaching methods and assessment criteria, etc.) must be approved by the Catalan Ministry of Education, these schools do not receive government subsidies and the cost of schooling is covered in full by families.

Kids-International-Schools-00-being-barcelonaIn Barcelona, all public schools are owned by public bodies — either the Government of Catalonia or the Barcelona City Council — and they are run by the Barcelona Education Consortium (Consorci d’Educació de Barcelona). State-subsidised private schools (escuela concertada) voluntarily participate in the government subsidy programme by complying with established requirements to receive subsides from the Catalan government that cover the cost of basic educational needs. These schools do not charge tuition, but any other expenses beyond the scope of compulsory education are paid for by parents on a voluntary basis. In practice, this means a monthly cost of between €80 and €500, depending on the school.

The Barcelona Education Consortium, located at Plaça d’Urquinaona 6, offers personalised information services in several languages. Consult the website www.edubcn.cat  for relevant calendars for enrolment periods, a registry of schools in Barcelona, and other useful information for residents. (website in Catalan) For schools outside of Barcelona, you can contact either the school, the city council, or one of the appointed offices of the Catalan Ministry of Education.

International schools in the Barcelona area

What do we mean by international schools? An international school is one that uses a curriculum or language of instruction different from that of the local community. Most of these schools are privately owned and operated, meaning that financial issues must be taken into consideration.

In Barcelona and its metropolitan area there are over 40 international schools. The great majority are purely private, which can an expensive option, compared with public schools, which are paid for in full with public funds.

The international schools in the city of Barcelona are located mostly in the Sarrià-Sant Gervasi and Les Corts neighbourhoods. There are also quite a few international schools in the surrounding metropolitan area with significant expat communities in cities such as Sant Cugat, Sitges and La Garriga, to name a few.
