International Schools in Marbella,

Marbella, and the Costa del Sol in general, is an incredibly popular place for immigrants. There are large expat communities of English, Scandinavian, Dutch, and German, up and down the coast. It is not difficult to see why, with the endless stretches of beautiful beaches, the guaranteed sunshine (around 320 days per annum), the amazing food, and the relaxed, carefree way of life.

 

Many thought that Brexit would dent the interest from British buyers, but the resurge in the property market throughout 2021/2022 and continuing right up to the present day, has added to the influx of new homeowners from all over Northern Europe.

Plenty have chosen to make Spain their permanent home, (rather than those that choose to have a second home in the sun to escape to during the long cold winter months) and it has become a base to work from, with online jobs and telecommuting having become increasingly popular.

For those with children, schooling is an important factor when considering making the life-changing decision to move country. Marbella and the surrounding areas of Estepona, San Pedro, Benahavis, Cabopino, Banalmadena, Fuengirola, are home to some of the best international schools in Spain. Offering lessons in English, Swedish, Danish, and a first-class education.

 

Below is just a small selection of what is available in the area.
