At BFIS we are always trying to provide new opportunities that will strengthen and develop the character of our students, helping them to grow into well-rounded and contributing members of society.

For the past year, the school has been working with the Head’s of School in other international schools to begin to develop a sports league for our students additional to the current ones (Barcelona Local School League and Barcelona International Schools Association Tournaments.  All schools we spoke with loved the idea, and, therefore, we are excited to announce a new addition to BFIS as we are a founding member of the Iberian Sports League.

We will be providing opportunities in a number of sports, for both Middle School and High School boys and girls.  We will start this year with a few sports and we hope to build on this in the coming years.  We also hope to expand to arts, drama music and technology in the future as well.
