School

Welcome to the website of
La Salle Bonanova

Present in Barcelona since 1889, today we are one of the educational centres in Catalonia and Spain of the institution to which we belong: the Brothers of the Christian schools.

The educational project we develop integrates the tradition of being a century-old school with pedagogical innovations that allow us to adapt the project to the times we live in to form the societies of the future, which are already in schools today. This commitment to innovation is possible thanks to the involvement of the school’s teaching team and the fact that it belongs to a network of schools present in all five continents.

Our main objectives are the commitment to the educational success of all students and to promote talent and excellence from an academic and human point of view. To achieve this, we provide them with the knowledge and skills they will need to live and develop in the society of the future.

Everything set in a unique space and environment, located practically at the foot of Collserola, with extensive and renovated facilities.

    Continuous improvement

    At La Salle Bonanova, the pedagogical organization and the set of actions that are daily carried out here are based on the “continuous improvement” concept according to the ISO 9001/2015 rule. That is why all the school staff, from their different sections, work according to these three major goals:

    • To achieve good results to ensure school success for all students, and general educational excellence.
    • To promote active participation in the school life to guarantee equity, inclusion and social cohesion.
    • To improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the ISO 9001 Quality concept and to move forward on the path to achieve a status of excellence.

    Our school achieved the Quality Certification in 2010, providing our management system with a set of tools and techniques that allow us to guarantee this level of Quality.

    New facilities

    In recent years, the school has made a significant effort to modernize its facilities. This has been done from the conviction that the space influences the way students learn, as well as their motivation, as evidenced by neuroeducation specialists. And all this with the aim of transforming the learning of contents and skills into a more meaningful experience.

    A good example of this commitment can be seen in the imaginary world, the scientific world, the language, mathematics and robotics laboratories, the Agora and the new science laboratories among others.
