Many people ask me about English schools in Spain. People ask for my opinion about which school is the best.

I believe that choosing the right school for your child is a very personal decision and I advise you to contact the schools direct to organise an interview and to make an unbiased opinion.

If you are planning to move to the Mijas region of Malaga and would like your child to be educated in English, you may wish to consider the following options.

If you click on the names below you can visit each of the school’s websites.

Take your time deciding which school is better suited to your child. Organise visits to the schools before looking for a place to live. If you would like me to organise the visits for you, just get in touch and I’ll be happy to help out.
