SEK International School Catalunya, founded in 1995, is a private trilingual school (Catalan-Spanish-English) located in the Els Tremolencs residential estate in La Garriga, Barcelona. It offers international boarding on campus.

Our school is part of SEK Education Group, with over 130 years of teaching experience and nine schools around the world whose origins are to be found in a free and independent century-old family tradition committed to offering high-quality education.

We are the only school in Catalonia accredited to teach the three International Baccalaureate Organisation programmes, the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP) alongside the Spanish national curriculum.



Our Group is rooted in a hundred-year family tradition of freedom and autonomy, free from any religious, political or financial ties. Our only commitment is the development of quality education in line with our ethos, values and education principles.

In order to meet this commitment, we implement our own unique educational system, developing every aspect of individual student’s personalities at each stage of their evolution, with the tried-and-tested expertise of our teaching staff, first-class facilities, educational resources, innovative technology and specially designed school environments, organisation and services.

Pioneers since 1892, the SEK Group is proud of its history which today boasts 9 international schools in Spain, France, Ireland and Qatar. Camilo José Cela University was established in the year 2000 to foster teaching research and innovation. See more information regarding our schools and university.
