About us

Our School Pons d’Icart is a mixed state Secondary School devoted to teaching and developing the personal and academic qualities of our students aged 12 to 18.

The school dimensions provide a friendly environment with approximately sixty expert teachers specialized in particular cultural areas, and about six hundred students, sharing their personal backgrounds and cultures to become competitive and well trained students.
The building, a monastery in former times, was later established as a Secondary School in 1978. It is located in the very city centre, near the URV faculties of Law, History, Philosophy and Language Studies, and not far from the City library of Tarragona and many interesting historical sites, as well as the shopping area and popular youth hangouts.

The School is organized to provide its students with a qualified secondary compulsory curriculum (students aged 12 to 16), as well as to teach and prepare those who are interested in further education to become university students.

The School aims to prepare its students to succeed in achieving a university degree in the Technological, Scientific, Humanistic, Social and Artistic areas and focuses especially on the Performing arts, Music and Dance as essential subjects to develop.
There is an interesting and considerable development of activities to improve student skills in science (laboratory practice), languages (several student exchanges), world of business and commerce (work experience), artistic performances (concerts, theatre, music) as well as outings to visit culturally interesting sites (Roman remains, chemical industries), attending lectures based on topics connected to the students’ syllabus, and sporting activities (skiing, water sports…) among others.

The school also offers students the possibility to prepare for admission to a French University, by validating the High School Diploma to the French Baccalaureate.
The School is also involved in the so called “1x1 project”, an initiative set up by the Catalan Department of Education, which combines the use of new technologies (laptops, digital books, digital interactive whiteboards...) with the traditional books and teaching methods.
It is also important to mention that the school is set on running a new programme, the so-called PELE, which integrates the learning of scholarly contents of a particular subject through the learning of a foreign language.
