During secondary school we guide students in their process of learning about the basic areas of education.

We work with 3 basic objectives:

  • Stimulate the overall abilities of students and enhance those in which they stand out.
  • Encourage the development of critical thinking.
  • Help them achieve personal autonomy in the management and analysis of their own work.

During secondary the students:

  • Reinforce Catalan, Spanish, French and English as languages ​​for learning and as vehicular languages for certain subjects, and complete the development of their oral skills for speaking in public and debating.
  • They study works of world literature as an introduction to the values of different literary cultures.
  • They further their learning in the fields of mathematics and scientific-technical subjects.
  • They get a better understanding of the world through humanities and social sciences.
  • They grow on a personal level through the field trips and cultural opportunities that the city has to offer.

In addition, in order to stimulate their abilities, all students have the opportunity to take things further and participate in competitions and projects such as science Olympiads, mathematical kangaroo contests or reading out loud competitions, among others things.

Textbooks and reading

To Top

Through the whole of Secondary, students get used to studying subjects using textbooks.

Each course has a number of textbooks and compulsory reading assignments that can be found here.

If you have any questions regarding textbooks you can write to us at: [email protected].

The school offers a service for reserving and subsequently delivering (to the school) the textbooks. It will be available soon.

Throughout secondary, students read narrative, theatre and poetry in Catalan, Spanish, French, and English. We develop a comprehensive programme of works of world literature, in their original language whenever possible or translated, taking into account that literature is not merely a tool for progressing in language learning, but is unto itself a valuable entryway into the values of diverse cultures.

In addition, books, magazines and newspapers in all four of the school’s vehicular languages are available in the media library.

In secondary school students go on a large number of outings, which allow them to acquire knowledge on the ground, in a much more authentic way.

Students have the opportunity to go on cultural outings to the theatre, visit exhibitions and museums, attend lectures, debates and seminars, go to the cinema. There are also nature outings where they learn about respect for the environment.

Thanks to these outings, students gain greater autonomy and responsibility, discover the meaning of hard work and of going above and beyond, and they learn to work in different group dynamics.

In addition during the year, all students have the opportunity to go on a field trip where they learn, grow and enjoy the company of classmates and teachers away from their usual environment.
