In their own words

When I work with families, I start by finding out what their needs and priorities are, which I then match to schools that are, as far as possible, a good fit for their family. This process is not always straightforward since there are so many things to take on board when choosing a school. One thing that families have to decide, for example, is what language they want their child to be taught in. People often don’t realise how prevalent the Catalan language is in public schools and concertades and find themselves limited to private schools if they would prefer something else. I love Catalan and have embraced its place in my family’s life but understand that not all foreign families feel the same, especially if they do not intend to stay here long-term.” Anya van der Drift, Founder
