IB World Schools in Spain

Are you looking for an International Baccalaureate World School in Spain? Here you can find a list of Spanish schools that have a profile in the IB World Schools Yearbook.

The schools featured below offer at least one of the IB's four programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP). You can use the search filter below to look for schools that offer one programme in particular.

Nearly 60 per cent of Spain’s 118 IB World Schools teach in Spanish. There are 55 schools offering IB programmes that teach in English, including a number of billingual schools. For a full list of IB World Schools in Spain, see the IB's website.

Several schools combine IB programmes with the national curriculums of other countries including the United States, Britain and Sweden.

The largest country in Southern Europe, Spain has long been a magnet for expatriates and its immigration rate has soared over recent decades. 

As well as Latin Americans, Africans and Chinese, Spain has drawn in a large number of migrants from within the European Union, including one of the largest overseas populations of British nationals in the world.  A large and vibrant private international school sector has developed across the country to cater for expatriates and demand for international education from Spaniards, with schools concentrated around Madrid, Barcelona, Alicante and Malaga. 

Education is compulsory and free from age six to 16. In the state sector, children attend primary school up to age 11, followed by four years of statutory secondary schooling including a preparatory year leading to the two-year Spanish Baccalaureate or vocational training. 

Most state schools teach in Spanish but some autonomous regions permit teaching in minority languages. Citizens of other European Union countries are entitled to free education in Spanish state schools. Free admission of British-born children after 2018 will depend on the outcome of negotiations over Britain’s exit from the European Union. 

IB World Schools are part of a thriving international school sector in Spain. For information on all Spanish international schools, you can visit: www.internationalschoolsearch.com
