"i know we would have to put him into a private international school but i am wondering if this will benefit him much more than staying here ?"
As Ian has said, if your son is up for moving, then this can only be beneficial for him. He will have the opportunity to speak another language in his daily life (as opposed to just during a school lesson and if he doesn't already know Spanish), he will engage with multiple nationalities (there are over 40 nationalities in my son's school) and the education (at least at the private schools I know of) is of a very good quality, with excellent results being achieved at most. I can certainly vouch for my son's school!
I can't compare the lifestyle to the UK as we don't know what it's like to live there with a family - but comparing it to the Middle East, Spain wins hands down!!!
As has been said before, though, this is a decision that has to be made with your son - our son was just 10yo when we made the decision, but your son is older and will have a valid opinion to consider.
