Yelieve, Inspire and Challenge. That’s the vision of this long-standing international school, which, founded in 1957, has been a leading education provider on the island for over 60 years. Regardless of the changing times and technologies, they have remained steadfast in their values and ethos. A belief in their students, their abilities and talents is paramount, as is offering them the best learning opportunities in a safe and welcoming environment.
Housed in two different campuses, one in Sant Agustí and the other in Sa Porrassa, BIC is a founding member of the National Association of British Schools in Spain, a member of the Council of British International Schools and is part of the Orbital Education Group of schools.
Sant Agustí: With regular family events, such as lunches on the beach and hiking days, it’s no wonder parents describe the smaller Sant Agustí school as a big family. Following the English National Curriculum, the school aims to foster a positive attitude towards learning, confidence, communication and physical development from a very young age. It caters for children from 2-11, with classes limited to 20 students. The curriculum is enriched with a variety of languages and sports, and the older children also benefit from the proximity of the National Sailing School at nearby Calanova.
Sa Porrassa: The larger Sa Porrassa campus is open to children aged 3 to 18. In both schools, languages feature from an early age. French, German or ‘The Native German Programme’, and Spanish, are all available. Swedish and Mandarin are also an option on their extra-curricular programme, which includes diverse activities such as Brazilian jiu-jitsu and robotics.
Outdoor pursuits are also prominent, both on the curriculum and as after-school interests. From golf to sailing, the school truly embraces a healthy Mallorcan lifestyle. Their excellent sports facilities include a running track, gymnasium, sports field and swimming pool.Following the English National Curriculum, older pupils sit IGCSE and A Level examinations, granting them access to universities around the world. Qualifications can be convalidated by the Spanish Ministry of Education, so they have plenty of choices for their future.BIC provides a nourishing atmosphere, which promotes student independence and resilience, a deep understanding of key values and a sense of responsibility. In a fast-changing world, their students receive the grounding, skills and opportunities necessary to succeed in life. Baleares International College; Believe, Inspire, Challenge.
