British education in Marbella is on the rise and more and more parents choose to move to the Costa del Sol, because of the international education options, weather, proximity to an international airport and the infrastructure the Costa del Sol has to offer. There is not one best school, but rather a better school that suits your child's needs. In order to figure this out, it is best to visit the schools you are interested in, decide on a curriculum, take into account driving time and proximity to home, read parent reviews and, if appropriate, what kind of exams you prefer your child to take, such as the International Bacchelaureat (IB), Bachillerato or A Levels.
