British Schools in Marbella
We are a family originally from the UK & are hopefully moving to the Marbella area next June 2013 for around 2 years to start with. Hubbys job.
I am literally tearing my hair out with regards schools!
(International / British schools)
For one the school fees vary so much it is both bizarre and suspicious! We have been expats in Asia for 13 years so I am not new to the whole International School thing (got to add all of the schools fees are signifigantly less than we are paying the 'rip off merchants' here!).
Another thing is the number of Spanish lessons required?! It would be like my children doing 8 hours of Korean per week just because they happened to go to an International School located there!
My kids are 12 & 16 so way past immersion. Plus I think a 12 year old boy will pick up the language (especially Latin based) by his location I don't think the issue needs to be forced to the deteriment of other lessons.
Can anyone cut through the fog for me!! I need A levels for my daughter and a good academic support system for a son who would rather be playing guitar or skateboarding than sitting in a boring classroom!! An enthusiatic vibrant enviroment might just reel him in!
Any help would be very gratefully recieved.
