BSB Nexus is a purpose-built campus for students aged 16 to 18. Located in Castelldefels, it provides a real-world Pre-University experience where distinct study and social spaces support independent study, and encourage the development of the 21st century skills as they prepare for university and their future careers.

The campus addresses this focus with study areas and social spaces for individual and group projects, and also strengthens personal skills such as initiative and leadership, social skills and the sense of belonging to a community.

The three-storey centre has:

  • Specially designed seminar and tutorial rooms

  • Large independent research/self-study centre

  • Indoor and outdoor social and study areas

  • Cafeteria

Students also have access to the top-notch BSB STEM Centre just opposite BSB Nexus with cutting-edge Lab technology for real-life Science work.

In addition, they have access to the art rooms, the music rooms, the large theatre and the sports facilities on the main school site next door, including the adjacent 9,000sq rugby stadium.

BSB Nexus is located in Castelldefels, next to the main BSB Castelldefels campus. Castelldefels is an increasingly popular destination for expat families. Our campus lies within easy access to the centre of Barcelona, and is just a 10-minute drive from the airport.
