The mission of our Boarding School is to develop an optimum environment for students’ development, and provide them with a sense of community and a place where they can learn respect for others.

The residence is a Modernista country mansion built in 1913 in the natural park of Garraf. It has been fully renovated and is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves in a quiet environment.

The estate forms part of the Garraf communityand we celebrate local events. Additional activities designed for our boarders will help them develop strong relationships with day students and teachers, and achieve their potential.

Our students like having structure for their time. They enjoy living close to their friends. They appreciate the facilities on offer and the fact that there is always plenty to do. Most of all, they love being part of a community that cares for them and puts their interests first.

ISB has a truly international feel, with students from a wide range of countries among the boarding community. Current and recent students hail from Russia, China, Hong Kong, Venezuela, Italy and Spain.


Situated in the heart of the Garraf area is the picturesque coastal town of Sitges, just 25 minutes from Barcelona. The town is interesting and easy to get to with a great beach and a variety of shops, restaurants and cinemas. It has all the advantages of a city without the inconveniences of urban life.

ISB International School of Barcelona is located in a quiet residential zone overlooking Sitges, with easy access and plenty of free parking.

The campus has playing fields, a sports centre and a swimming pool. All of these can be used after school hours and during the weekends.

The residence, Clos la Plana, was built in 1913 and is a wonderful example of Modernista architecture. It’s 5 minutes from Sitges and nestles in 10 hectares of vines, olive trees and flower gardens. It borders Garraf Natural Park and is a perfect spot to enjoy a healthy environment.

Each and every one of our activities is designed to develop the abilities of our boarders and allow their innate talents to grow, helping them to integrate into the multicultural world in which we live.
