Agora International School Barcelona is part of the prestigious Globeducate international group of schools, that owns more than 50 schools worldwide, and its educational project is defined by 5 distinctive principles: the International Baccalaureate as an educational model for the future, Multilingualism, Music, Sport, and a commitment to provide our students with the tools they need to become global citizens, capable of making the world a better place.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a forward-thinking educational model, universally accepted by higher education institutions throughout the world, that focuses on developing key competences and helping students to work towards achieving academic, personal and professional success within an international context. Agora International School Barcelona is authorized to teach the International Baccalaureate® (IB) Diploma Program (PD). As an IB World School we have created a pro-active, innovative and reflective learning environment and we are constantly striving to improve.
We prepare our students for an international future. We offer a multilingual curriculum with immersion in both English and official languages and with classes offered in French and German. Our students experience a complete immersion in English from the outset, with half of the subjects and activities are taught in English during the Preschool and Primary school, and our comprehensive language project adapts itself to each learning stage. As the school is a registered examinations centre, students can prepare for a range of official language qualifications.
Music and Expressive Arts form an integral part of a child’s development and provide enormous cognitive and personal benefits, enhancing communication skills and building confidence and self-esteem. We give a leading role to music education in our educational project: Thanks to our links with the Conservatorio del Liceo de Barcelona, students can work towards both Elementary and Advanced level Music Diplomas. In addition, we offer a wide range of artistic opportunities including art, music, painting, drawing and Visual Arts, encouraging our students to create, inspire, communicate and innovate.
Sport forms an essential part of our curriculum and our aim is to help students to embrace an active and healthy lifestyle, and to establish patterns of behaviour that will help them grow into physically and emotionally balanced young people. We promote the values implicit in participating in sporting activity and our students practice more than 14 different sports in their Physical Education classes and they have a complete “Sport Center” and 40,000 m2 of facilities, with a 25-metre pool where all students practice swimming during school hours.
Agora International School Barcelona, and the Globeducate group as a whole, are committed to the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Children entering education today will graduate as young adults in 2030. Our mission is to prepare them for jobs that have not yet been created, for technologies that have not yet been invented, and to solve problems that have not yet been anticipated. We must encourage our young people to embrace and shape their own futures and to understand that they form part of a wider international community and are capable of shaping the world.
Agora International School Barcelona has a purpose-built sports centre with two astro turfs football pitches, basketball handball, tennis and padel courts and an indoor sports centre with a semi-Olympic sized swimming pool. Our students have access to more than 14 different sports, with swimming included on the curriculum at Primary, Secondary and Baccalaureate, and three sports clubs affiliated to their specific leagues.
Agora International School Barcelona is located in a beautiful, natural environment close to the city of Barcelona. Our school buildings are designed with light and airy classrooms, fully equipped laboratories and specialist classrooms for technology, art and music and a library – all fully resourced for the requirements of each educational stage.
Agora International School Barcelona offers a number of additional services; a dining room and our own kitchens on site, which cater for individual dietary requirements including vegetarians and children with food allergies or intolerances, bus services and extended hours in the mornings and after school, all designed to make life a little easier for our students and their families.
