Throughout July, the British College of Gavá organises a thriving summer school which attracts a high attendance from students travelling from all around the world.  The summer school operates a dual programme with morning activities being delivered by the fully qualified British teachers of the British College of Gavá.  In the afternoon qualified sports coaches and arts/crafts leaders take over.  

Once weekly participants spend a morning out on the beach with a local watersports company that provides exciting opportunities such as kayaking, stand up paddle board, sailing and windsurf as well as team-building games on the beach.   The week finishes with a grand presentation for parents during which students show off their achievements.
