All state education in Spain is free and compulsory for children aged 6 years and above. Spain is home to many nationalities and most Spanish schools have a large number of non-Spanish pupils. In our experience, young British children attending Spanish school, have a basic understanding of Spanish in 4 months and are fluent within the year. Children will also be pleased to know that school hours are from 9am - 2 pm with plenty of holidays, including 10 weeks in the summer!

There are also a number of British / International schools with G.C.S.E subjects being taught and exams taken, these are normally private and you will have to pay, however, these schools are considerably cheaper than UK private schools.  Nurseries in Spain are plentiful. This is an ideal way to introduce your child to the Spanish language. Hours and costs may vary, though prices are very low compared to Britain.

We do not recommend one particular school over another and Fiesta Property suggest that you make an informed decision after you view the schools for yourself.

Below, we have provided a selection of schools that you have available and their contact details:
