The Aloha International College (often called Aloha College Marbella) offers the British National Curriculum for international families, while providing education in Spanish language and culture, and enabling students to gain qualifications from both the British and Spanish national education systems.
The Aloha College Marbella was founded in 1982 by six teachers, at the behest of local and expat families, who invested their own money in what was then and is to this day a not-for-profit-making project. The school has grown from 210 pupils to approximately 840 currently and from one small building which housed everyone to the present 27,000 m² of buildings and sport/recreational areas.
The Aloha College Marbella is one of Marbella’s premier private schools and annual Aloha College fees can range from 3,930 to 14,900 euros, according to isbi Schools. The school has a FIFA approved football pitch and a multi-purpose indoor sports area.
If you would like to start the admissions process and discover more about the school’s annual fees, you will need to fill out an enquiry form on the Aloha International College’s website.
Read an extract following an inspection from the National Association of British Schools in Spain (NABSS):
“The quality of teaching is always good and in the majority of cases is excellent.
These high standards reflect the positive relationships between teachers and children.
Teachers know their pupils well. Students are engaged and motivated and enjoy being
challenged in their lessons. The teachers have high expectations for work and
behaviour, which are consistently met.
The level of spoken English in the school is high, both inside and outside classrooms.
Teachers are skilled at helping pupils to acquire new vocabulary and to become fluent
users of the language. They also use questioning exceptionally well to draw information from the students, including the very youngest, and to help them better understand
