Founded in 1964, St. Peter’s School is a private, international school located in Barcelona for pupils from Nursery (12 months old) to Secondary (Pre-U).
The curriculum followed is Spanish, although it is taught in English. All legal matters pertaining to the pupils’ education are governed by Spanish law.
We follow our own Linguistic Project, authorised by the Generalitat de Catalunya, which includes the study of five languages: English, Spanish, Catalan, French and notions of German. Teachers are native speakers in each language.
English is used as our main means of communication at school.
The School is comprised of four stages:
- Foundation Stage
12 months to 18 years old
- Student body made up of 630 pupils of over 30 nationalities
- 110 teachers representing over 10 nationalities
- Enrolment mix of 70% Spanish and 30% other
After school acivities
We offer a wide range of after school activities: swimming, football, volleyball, judo, music, art and craft, Chinese, dance or "psicomotricidad" among them. They are held from Monday to Thursday.
Learning outside the classroom
Learning outside the classroom in no way substitutes what goes on inside it, but rather complements it in a very beneficial way. Putting pupils in direct contact with nature or any other learning environment is not only stimulating, but also assists in the learning process.
At St. Peter’s pupils of all ages participate in a wide range of activities beyond the classroom, with visits to museums, musical performances, conferences, outings and excursions, which, in some cases are of a scientific nature whilst others are of a culture nature.
These outings form part of the students’ global development and are designed to give them the experience of different social situations and environments, and to work on personal qualities such as self-control, self-confidence, independence and autonomy.
