Hi everyone, ive just joined and would like some help please.  my family and I will be moving over to costa blanca south hopefully this year as soon as our house here in manchester sells. We are coming over in 2 weeks and we would love some information on the best areas as we have 2 children aged 13 and 7..and would appreciate any info on the different schools available. We will be staying in the villamartin area for a week so really hope to take a look at many areas. my 13 year old daughter does have some slight learning difficulties so i do not know which type of school would be best for her????? My husband is a musician, so if anyone could point us in the directon of any agencies. i hope you can help me!!!! xxxx

Many Thanks

 Hi Ella

Welcome to Eye on Spain.  I don't know the area at all but at 13 years old, and with learning difficulties, you really need to find an international school for her.  That is a very difficult age for a child to start in a Spanish school.  You really need to find her an English school.

Your youngest child should be ok in a Spanish school although he/she may be put back a year as his/her level of Spanish will be (I'm assuming) very poor.

Best of luck with it all.

Welcome to EOS. You will find very helpful and truthful advice on here.

Villamartin is a nice area, they have an International school near there in San Miguel, its called Mar Azul International school, it's a private school but probably a better option for your 13 year old. Spanish schools are fine but definitely for kids who are younger than 10. Check out


Also there is another private school in the area, Blue Lagoon is near Villamartin, this is a new school, check out


I agree with EOS team, that your 13 year old will find it difficult at that age.

There is also a dance school in Villamartin, maybe your Husband could contact them, they may need a musician. Also your kids might be interested in dancing.

Ghost Performing Arts Academy
67 Calle rigoletto , 03189  Villamartin (Alicante)
Tel: 679531737

I hope this info helps you.

 i expect you have done tons of research, so forgive me if you have already sorted the following. have you found out how moving to spain will affect you regarding family allowance for your children, as i think you will not be able to claim this any more, and it is quite a lot of money to lose. also you must tell the DWP,DVLA, tax office and bank that you will be living in spain-this will make all your affairs easier to sort out. it can be a nightmare if you leave it. some here don't tell the relevant authorities they are moving here and then find they are in a mess.   also think about health care, no nhs, and dentists are all private.  i think you are very brave to move here, especially at this bad time of the recession, and the terrible unemployment, but if you have plenty of money, and are aware of some of the things that have been done out here, have a house back in the uk if it doesn't work out , then good luck!
