International Schools on the Costa del Sol

We’re blessed with a large range of options for schooling here on the Costa del Sol, and due to the highly international population there are schools to suit all kids. Most of the International schools will either follow the English curriculum or the International Baccalaureate as it’s a more portable qualification. Many teach in English, but offer a lot of time for Spanish and factor it into the curriculum in the younger years so the kids get a good base in the language.

There’s a great list of the International schools in Andalucia on website Mum Abroad. Check out what you feel would suit your family best, many people choose the school first and then where to live to make it more straightforward, but if you’re renting long term on the Costa del Sol, you have the flexibility to move over to a preferred location, get a feel for the area, find the right school and then either decide to move closer to the school or look at transport options.

Sotogrande International School receives excellent comments for their IB education from primary to diploma, child-centred focus and outstanding sports and arts programmes. They also have transport options from Marbella and also from Gibraltar. Aloha, English International College and Laude also have good reputations, all the information and website addresses are on the Mum Abroad post.

If you want to ask questions for your specific circumstances or if your child has any individual difficulties, post a question on Marbella Family Fun or check out their list of popular schools in the area  this is an excellent resource for families moving to the Costa del Sol.
