Our school is part of SEK Education Group, with over 128 years of teaching experience and nine schools around the world whose origins are to be found in a free and independent century-old family tradition committed to offering high-quality education.
We are the only school in Catalonia to teach the 3 International Baccalaureate Organisation programmes, the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP) alongside the Spanish national curriculum.
We also offer our 12 to 18 year old students the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, an all-round personal development scheme focused on the development and training of skills such as leadership, audacity, autonomy, capacity for resolution and teamwork.
One of the learning experiences we are particularly proud of at SEK-Catalunya is our Music school, partnered with Trinity College London, where students develop their artistic side while acquiring first-class musical training.

A leading standard in educational innovation boasting learning spaces fitted with the latest technology. These large open spaces are designed to meet the educational and care needs of all our students.
Another factor that stands our school apart is its setting and surroundings, an ideal environment for learning, encouraging students to play a leading role in their own education through discovery, inquiry, experiencing and acquiring knowledge with the expert mediation of teachers.
