Important note: If you need a British School for your children during your stay in your new luxurious villa in Marbella, choose a NABSS school.

NABSS (The National Association of British Schools in Spain) is the only association of British schools recognised by the Spanish government.
All member schools are listed on The NABSS website.

In order for a school to be a member of NABSS, they must fulfil the criteria published on the NABSS website and achieve full authorization, via British inspection, from the appropriate Spanish authorities. The rigor of the NABSS inspection system, and of the authorization process itself, is a guarantee for parents who are choosing schools in Spain.
Choosing a NABSS school for your child ensures that he will be able to move seamlessly between British Schools whether in The UK or Spain.
