More About Marbella Schools

As there are a wide range of schools in the area to choose from, you will find that some of the best bilingual schools Spain has to offer can be found right here on the Costa del Sol.

Some of these schools have been established here for many years with a solid foundation and reputation, with state-of-the-art facilities and professional teaching and management staff that have operated in the area for years. 

Larger schools like Aloha College in Nueva Andalucia, Laude San Pedro International School and Sotogrande International School offer a strong focus on academics in purpose built facilities with strong sports programmes.

The British School of Marbella offers the English National Curriculum in the heart of Marbella. It is very convenient to get to if you are living in the centre of town. The school accepts children from ages 2 to 7, so it is ideal for the younger set.

If you are looking for a newer school in the Estepona area, you may want to consider International School Estepona, which has relatively new facilities and strong reviews on our site. The school caters to children 2 to 12 and follows the Montessori program and the British National Curriculum offering a balanced education for both young and old.

Marbella Montessori School also offers the Montessori education alongside the British Early Years Curriculum for kids 3 months to 6 years old and is a good choice if you live closer to San Pedro, Guadalmina or Estepona.

Smaller kids may enjoy some of the smaller schools in Marbella that offer the feeling of safety and security in an environment that makes a smooth transition from home to school, such as Calpe School in San Pedro Alcantara.
