SEK International School Catalunya

Educational principles: rigour, balance and bilingualism

At SEK-Catalunya knowledge is obtained through the exploration of concepts, research and the development of competencies that encourage critical thought and creativity. Learning by doing is a way of learning that is practical, existential, collaborative and reflective. Teachers become facilitators who plan, organise and guide using their own experience. Students are presented with real and relevant tasks, such as organising the business exhibition SEK-Business Expo.


Our educational system means that we can ensure the best academic performance from our students. We prepare an education balanced between the following areas: sports, together with physical education for good health; fostering understanding and enjoyment of other cultures; natural and responsible use of technology; development of social and emotional intelligence; community service integrated into the learning process, visual, musical and dramatic arts, as an expression of other languages, and activities that enrich our educational framework. 


SEK-Catalunya is a member of the IB® World Schools International Community. The International Baccalaureate® programmes are offered from 3 up to 18 years of age, integrated with the national curriculum.
