Understand The Spanish Education System And How You Can Ensure That Your Child Prospers In A School In Spain

Schools & Education In Spain ebook cover

Educating your child can be a minefield wherever you live in the world and in a foreign country with a foreign system even more so. For parents moving to Spain with their children, one of their biggest concerns is education.

It is difficult for you as a parent to know what to expect so this can make it problematic when trying to prepare your children to adapt to a new system.

Most parents worry about providing the best education for their child which prompted me to share my own thoughts, experiences, facts and findings with you.

I am providing here a great source of information, both objective and subjective, for people who are at the moving to Spain stage and also some useful insights and food for thought for those who have children in school in Spain, albeit state, private, international, whatever the endless options are.

Sometimes I think life would be far simpler if we didn’t have the options which cause for so many sleepless nights and hours of debating amongst friends. For me I just want my children go to school happily, achieving a good balance of learning and fun during the day and return home feeling fulfilled.

Actually, it seems like rather a lot to ask.

We all want our children to do well in school and many of us have moved to Spain to give our children a better life. Unfortunately too many parents don't understand the Spanish education system and believe that simply plonking their kids in a Spanish school is all that's needed for them to do well.

This often has the opposite effect to the original reason for moving to Spain meaning that many expat kids fail in a foreign system which neither they nor their parents understand.

Don't Let It Happen To Your Kids

Your children will only ever have one chance in life to complete their education. It's important that as a parent you give them the best possible chance to do as well as possible in school.

In a foreign school they need your support even more, which is why I've put this in-depth guide together for you, so that you can truly understand the Spanish education system and how you can help your child to prosper in a Spanish school.

Here's What's Covered In The Guide

After six years in Spain with two children I have amassed a huge amount of knowledge and understanding about how schools in Spain work, how kids integrate with the Spanish and very importantly, the language issues they may face which can really impact the learning ability.

The advice and information I've included in this guide is what I could only have dreamed of having at my disposal before moving here. Take a look at some of the topics I cover for you:

Within each of these sections I don't just cover the basics, in some instances I go into huge depths discussing the social aspects of foreign children in Spanish schools, and very importantly how they integrate with Spanish children and other expat children. It's a fascinating insight into a foreign child's life in Spanish school.

The International School Debate

For those of you with older children or those of you considering International School instead of the free state schools, I have dedicated a lengthy chapter to the problem of deciding which one is best for your child, and how either option will impact your child's future prospects.

One of the areas I cover, which concern parents the most, is "How Quickly Will My Child Learn Spanish in a British/International School?". This is a fascinating insight into how International schools work and the impact it will have on your child's ability to learn Spanish.

What You'll Learn From This

There is much to learn from my own experience with Spanish and International schools here and so this guide will benefit you accordingly:

Arrow Understand how Spanish schools work and the often associated frustrations that go with it
Arrow Know what and how your children will be learning in school
Arrow Determine if your child is too old to join a Spanish state school (it's not what you may have heard)
