Admissions process

1. Personal Interview with the family

The admissions team will be in charge of interviewing the family and the student candidate. This first meeting will serve to familiarise them with the philosophy of the school and allow them to better understand the programs offered, and see if the school model fits the student’s needs. In case your family is still abroad, we also offer virtual interviews.

2. Candidate Assessment

Candidate assessment is based on the following criteria: a personal interview with the potential candidate, an academic transcript or report and references from your child’s previous school. When necessary, the candidate will undertake an entrance test. 

To ensure a smooth transition, a trial day/period is recommended. Candidates with learning difficulties, social-emotional or other specific needs, must communicate this to the admissions team at the time of initiating the application

3. Acceptance and Enrolment

Students accepted to the school must fill out additional documentation before being able to start their classes, in addition to paying the corresponding tuition and other pertinent payments. In the event that there is no place once the student is accepted, the admissions team will work to resolve the situation as soon as possible. Preference will be given to families who already are at school

Excellent school, with a comfortable environment and an individualized approach for each child! Education is delivered in English, even in secondary school, whereas in other English schools, from the age of 12 onwards, the teaching is in Catalan. The academic year schedule is based on the English timetable, with classes ending at 3:45 PM. The facilities are all renovated, bright, and spacious! The school meticulously preserves Spain’s historical heritage. All teachers are native English speakers, very welcoming and friendly! For children with developmental issues, there is an adapted curriculum. My child arrived with almost no English, and a personal tutor was provided until his English level matched his peers! The child goes to school eagerly and with a desire to learn! I highly recommend it!

It has met that expectation and more. The teachers teach the subjects in a way that even the most challenged student understands it, each person gets individual attention and a friendly learning equipment. The school is international, but everyone gets along, fun culture merges emerge almost regularly. Some students have problems with english, Spanish or Catalan, there are free programs to help your child in school. There are 3 different levels for Spanish and Catalan and 2 different levels for English and French. Do you want for your kid to have excellent IGSCE results and do A-levels without spending a fortune on tutors or extra education courses? Do you want to live in a peaceful seaside town? If the answer is yes then this marvelous school is for you.

I like my school because I learn lots of things. Our shcool special because we speak english every day. We have a big forest where we learn about plants, we built a tree house and learn how to cook fish on fire. I also like my school because we have a farm and we made a cool solkden inside the class. I love to play in the playground because we can play football and many other things.



This school is perfect for me because we have a forest and a football field. Our school has competitions games and fun days througout the year like Halloween, Christmas and Easter. We have kind teachers, perfect food, friendly students and it is international, so that means we speak English. We have fun lessons. Sometimes a group of people even get to fly to other countries during Odissey of the mind subject. We have pet animals at school too and soon, we will have fish.



I love this school, I came from a school in which teachers used to make fun of you and make you feel bad, in which they don’t put effort into explanations. This school made me realize that I love learning, and that teachers will explain to you 100 times if it’s necessary and always with a smile. This school changed my life.



As a Year 12 student at ISCB preparing for my A-level exams, I can confidently say that the support from our teachers has been amazing. They are always there to help with any questions and give great advice to make sure we’re ready for our exams.

The school has a welcoming and respectful atmosphere, which has made my time here really enjoyable. Being part of such a diverse community has opened my eyes to different cultures and ideas, and has prepared me well for university. Thanks to ISCB, I feel ready and excited to take the next step in my education journey.
