HI - Am considering relocating to Barcelona as result of my employment.  I have 2 boys aged 8 and 12 and wanted to ask peoples advice on schooling in Barcelona.  We won't move until Summer 2019 so they'd enter Y5 and Y9 in UK system if so. Welcome any advice on state system and private/independant also.

Hi. Hopefully you will get some answers from some local expats in Barcelona. But in the meantime, have you had a look at these pages? http://www.expatarrivals.com/europe/spain/barcelona/education-and-schools-barcelona

There are plenty of bilingual and international schools in Barcelona. many of which teach using British or American curriculum. Check out this page which has a list of international schools in Barcelona.

Good luck with your move
