Richmond International School is the first school in Catalonia of its kind. We are leading the way in providing internationally-relevant, world class education in a dynamic, friendly, and comfortable atmosphere.
Located in Sant Pere de Ribes, the school sits between the sea and the lovely pine-clad hills of Garraf Natural Park, only 35 minutes south of Barcelona. Our proximity to the world-renowned city of Barcelona means that we have the opportunity to explore its history, architecture, art, music and museums. The picturesque artists’ colony of Sitges is right next door, as are the beautiful vineyards of Penedes and the lively fishing town of VIlanova i la Geltru.
We offer the International Primary, Secondary and 6th Form Programme for 3-18 year- olds in an attractive, purpose-built school. Behind its modern facade Richmond International is at heart a warm, family-run school, where academic excellence, high-tech facilities, and a solid sense of community all come together under one roof.
Richmond International is most definitely not a typical school. There is a bright uniform which reflects our energy and passion, the admission process requires qualities that go beyond to academic attainment, and students are encouraged and guided to be questioning, analytical, and original thinkers, not mere repositories of examination answers.
All Primary students explore the worlds of classical music, theatre and the arts. From the age of 5 upwards we learn to play either the violin, the piano or the guitar.
We have a weekly swimming class, and all students have the opportunity to experience a multitude of sports such as tennis, golf, horseriding, surfing, sailing and skiing.
We make Catalonia our home, taking full advantage of the cultural riches of the region’s cities, towns, and inhabitants. Our student council representatives, with the involvement of parents and other family members, endevour to make Richmond the best school in Catalonia and beyond.
At Richmond, we are passionate about education, both inside and outside of the classroom.
