The Times Online has made a list of advice for English relocating to Spain, also for families
The first thing to decide is whether to educate your children at a local school, or whether to put them into a ‘foreign school’.
About 80 per cent of ex-pats send their children to a Spanish state school, where the education is free. ‘Foreign schools’ can be international schools, or British schools which teach the British curriculum.
It is worthwhile talking to other ex-pats to find out about their experiences, and consult you local Spanish town hall, and for British schools contact:
- NABSS (National Association of British Schools in Spain, www.nabss.org);
- the British Council www.britishcouncil.es, tel. (00 34) 91 337 3500); or
- ECIS (www.ecis.org, (00 44) 1730 268244).
