The school’s primary focus is on developing well-rounded individuals at both an academic and sociocultural level, via an innovative curriculum that works in conjunction with each student’s individual strengths and abilities. The importance of English as a global language is emphasised, and the school delivers full courses in music, sport and the arts, making Agora IS Barcelona more than just a school.

He also emphasises the school’s Pre-University programme and the wide variety of subjects offered by the school at secondary level that provide students with the foundations upon which to build their future careers and to prepare them for success in whichever field they choose to enter as the move into the wider world.
