Schools in Marbella East
Published on: 19-11-2017

The area known as Marbella East is a particularly lovely residential area. It has some of the best beaches on the coast, especially the stretch from Cabopino to the Artola dunes, and plenty of green, forested areas on both sides of the N340 main coast road. There are several top quality golf courses, including Santa Clara, Río Real and Santa María, plus numerous restaurants and beach clubs, such as Nikki Beach. But, it is also one of the best areas to live if you need to be near a school.

One of the best international schools is the English International College, which is just before you reach Elviria from Marbella. The English International College (EIC) follows the UK National Curriculum for pupils of all nationalities from 3-18 years. Students sit IGCSE exams in Year 11 followed by AS levels and A2 level examinations in preparation for university entrance.

Up in La Mairena, one of the most exclusive residential complexes of Elviria, there is the Colegio Alemán Juan Hoffmann, otherwise known as the German School Marbella. This popular school provides an international education, primarily using German and Spanish to early years, primary and secondary levels.

Colegio Alboran offers a bilingual education in Spanish and English from early years to the end of secondary. The buildings are in a beautiful green zone with sea views and it is highly respected for its students’ achievements.

And, in recent weeks, Marbella council has announced that it has put land aside in the Las Chapas area between Río Real and the Hospital Costa del Sol for a new school. This will be a Spanish state secondary school serving two of the local primary schools. Neither of these currently have a corresponding secondary school and the addition of a new educational establishment will greatly improve the lives of children and their families who otherwise had to travel further afield once they had finished primary.
