"My child enjoys school every day"

I have been very impressed with the calibre of teachers at The British School of Marbella and the enthusiasm they display towards all children. I also appreciate the sense of discipline in the school and seeing how my child enjoys going to school every day. I would have no hesitation recommending BSM to any parent looking for a British curriculum school.
