Education

Overview of educational options in Barcelona for children from 0 - 18, that I wrote for Barcelona Expat Life here.

The Barcelona Education Department, known as The Consorci, can be found here (Catalan only ). This is the first port of call for anything related to public school education in the Barcelona area. Fem Escola is a website produced by The Consorci and is dedicated to finding out more about public schooling, opinion pieces, experiences and any new initiatives. 

Information about studying in Barcelona offered by the Generalitat can be found here.

A resource for Catalan-speakers looking for schools in Barcelona: www.mamuts.org

 

A directory of alternative schools and childcare options in Spain:  https://ludus.org.es/es 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tutoring Barcelona is a service for families looking for extra tuition for their children.
