SCHOOL HISTORY

In 1997, I had the Idea of educating children in a friendly, family environment, where respect is the main common denominator.
The school started in a small town called Arroyo de la Miel, near Benalmádena Costa in a small apartment block. The 5 children who started , quickly grew to over 100 students in just a few years.
I am thankful to the Ayuntamiento of Benalmádena Costa to construct our present school.
Careful design over its 27 year history has seen the school develop into a modern and inspiring centre of excellence for international children, while still maintaining our original ideology.
It has been a journey I am proud to have experienced.

Mark Halliwell, Principal

The school was founded in 1997. Since then, we have grown into a well established educational institution with an excellent reputation for academic success and caring staff.

The College is purpose built, with outstanding facilities for learning and preparation for university life. Our philosophy is to give each child focused learning in an enjoyable environment, an experience they will treasure for the rest of their lives.

Student numbers are made up of over 33 different nationalities. Many of these children can speak several languages before they reach the senior school. We pride ourselves on Languages and Science Technology, with sport playing a vital role in their overall development.​

I hope you find our college as exciting a place for your child to study and enhance their talent as we do.
