Hi there. Thinking of moving to grab Alicante and were just wandering if anyone could give any info on schools please. For a 5yr old and 11 the old. Looking for a free state school. Thank you.

I'd love to hear more about your motivation to move to the area. Do you have work lined up? Do our kids speak Spanish? I ask because the local schools teach in Spanish.

When i last looked, the state schools teach only in spanish,little allowance made for other languages. Lots of international fee paying schools where you can take your pick of languages. As with most things in spain very little is free.

Hi Poppy

There is a school for younger children in Gran Alacant, the older ones get the school bus into Santa Pola, dont know how you go about getting a placement but i know the little school in ga is oversubscribed. The little ones seem to adapt to the language quicker than the older ones so any help you can give, especially to the older child will be a big help if you do end up giving it a go. Good luck.
