Secondary

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: llibrestext@aula-ee.com.

The school offers a service for reserving textbooks for the 2018-2019 academic year and subsequent delivery to the school. If you want to use them, go to bcnbooks.com/aula and enter the password we’ve e-mailed you. This service is active until 15 July.

We follow a very comprehensive study programme of works of world literature, and whenever possible, we read in the original language. We believe that literature is a crucial complement for learning languages, as well as a valuable introduction to the values of different cultures.

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

Outings

To Top

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.

Exchanges

To Top

All 4th grade secondary students can participate in an exchange that we arrange with two top schools who also organize exchanges between themselves:

  • Lycée Camille Saint-Saëns, in Rouen, France
  • Gefion Gymnasium, in Copenhagen, Denmark

These exchanges allow students to discover the cultural diversity of the country and its educational system. They can attend some classes or activities at the school, they are hosted by French or Danish families and go on cultural visits during the trip.

It is a very enriching experience for students, providing them with a very intense social, cultural, linguistic and academic immersion.

The students of the Lycée Camille Saint-Saëns and the Gefion Gymnasium also visit Aula for a few days and are welcomed by the families of the school.

Relationship with the families

To Top

A close relationship between students, school and the families is necessary for the proper development of each student.

You can contact the secondary department to discuss the progress of your child or any other day-to-day issues, either by calling 93 203 03 54 or by email:

You can also send us written notes which can be delivered by your child. We ask that these notes include: date, the student’s full name and group, reason for the communication, and name and signature of the father or mother.

To monitor the progress of your child in the best possible way, we will call your family to a meeting when necessary. In the same way, families can request as many meetings as they deem appropriate.

Would you like to get to know Aula better?
