Hamelin-Laie International School Barcelona opened its doors in 1989. We were the first private school in Barcelona to offer learning in English, Spanish, and Catalan. Authorised by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Spain (MEC) - and the world-renowned International Baccalaureate - we continue to be the leading multilingual school in the region.

Since our founding, Hamelin-Laie has continued to grow, and now offers a premium boarding programme that’s home to a community of up to 45 international students. 

In 2022, we joined the Nord Anglia family, an international schools’ group with an outstanding reputation for academic and personal excellence worldwide.
