About Escola Global
Escola Global is an innovative school with a holistic approach to education, where an understanding of nature and nutrition are valued as much as academic learning.
The school opened in 2008 originally catering to 3 to 11 year olds, but in the 2013/14 academic year the school relocated to new premises in Parc Bit now welcomes secondary students as well.
Escola Global is an independent school, authorised by NABSS, where education is based on the English National Curriculum. Most classes are therefore taught in English but there is a strong focus on Spanish as well, to ensure a bilingual education. Children who are not native English or Spanish speakers are supported with additional language classes.
Social and emotional development and an understanding of the environment are considered as important as academic progress, and creative, critical thinking is nurtured.
The school’s commitment to nature means that classes are conducted outdoors when possible and students are encouraged to help in the vegetable garden and in meal preparation. School meals use fresh, seasonal and, when possible, organic produce.
Conventional facilities at Escola Global are limited.
