School Costa i Llobera

Costa i Llobera is participating for the second time in the program, with a group of first and second ESO students.


The Institut Escola Costa i Llobera (Sarrià) is an education centre with a long tradition of involvement in educational reform movements and has very close connections with the neighbourhood of Sarrià. It opened in 1958-1959 and, together with the CEPEC centres, transferred in the 1980s into the publicly-run education system under the Catalan Government Ministry of Education. It promotes innovation and experimentation programmes at every level of education.
