Welcome from the Head of Secondary

I would like to welcome you to the Secondary School of the British College of Gava. Students who join us from our Primary School or from other schools can expect to have a challenging, fun, safe and creative experience. We pride ourselves on high expectations for our students and our staff and make sure we help each individual grow throughout their time at BCG.

At BCG we aim to have students that develop a wide range of skills inside and outside of the classroom. Our aim and mission is to create students who are global citizens and confident leaders who will have the ability of making a change in the world and making a difference. The qualifications we offer at BCG are recognised around the world, but we want our students to leave the school with much more than just exam qualifications.

A large part of becoming a global citizen is developing a wide range of languages and developing the ability to communicate effectively with people from all backgrounds and cultures. Our students study English, Spanish, Catalan and French. These language lessons are fully differentiated to enable our students to fully engage in the course, reaching their full potential, no matter their starting point or mother tongue.

All students follow the English National Curriculum from Years 7-9, before students enter Year 10 they pick their GCSE and iGCSE options. Students will sit their exams in the Summer Series of Year 11. We then offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme to our Sixth Form students. This programme is recognised throughout the world and reinforces our students becoming global citizens, with the skills to study at world renowned Universities.

The ability of our students to interact with the whole school community is important to us. Our students participate together in a wide range of extracurricular activities such as Samba Band, music concerts, theatre productions, a wide range of sporting activities and fixtures and environmental sustainability projects.

We are very lucky here at BCG. We have state of the art facilities in which every child can use and enjoy to develop into mature lifelong learners who are global citizens with the skills to go into adult life and be extremely successful.

I look forward to meeting you and your children.
