The English School of Barcelona is an international school that follows the Spanish national curriculum up until the end of ESO 4, teaching pupils ages 3-16. The school introduces French as a 4th language so students may go on to study the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme or the Batxibac, which is a dual qualification covering the Spanish and French national curriculums. For more information on the Spanish education system, read our Education in Spain page.
