A private institution of secondary education, founded in 1992, has been offering quality education to students of different nationalities and from 2 to 18 years old for more than 20 years.

BSV was originally founded for a small stream of young children.

Since 1996, the capacity of the educational institution has been 200 students, and since 1999 the academic program has been supplemented by a program for the middle classes. From 2007 to the present, the full secondary education course has been supplemented by A-level graduation classes, which gradually attracted more and more students to the walls of the school.

The goal of the British BSV school in Spain is to introduce an educational model that is different from most schools, with the help of which students will be able to get high-quality academic preparation and develop personal skills through creativity, awareness and initiative.

The British School of Valencia creates for its students a school environment in which students are inculcated with mutual respect, a desire for cooperation and an enthusiasm in acquiring new knowledge. All this helps students of all ages to feel their value and importance, to increase self-confidence.

BSV is part of the educational association Cognita, which has 7 educational points in Spain and more than 70 schools around the world. The organization began its work in 2004 and during this time it released more than 77 thousand people in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
