International Schools In Mallorca

There are now 9 international schools in Mallorca, providing high quality educational facilities for the ex-pat communities.

Quality of schooling is obviously a key concern for anyone with children who is considering relocating to Mallorca. Most are in the southwest coast area and this is likely to influence where you choose to live.

Alternatively, you might opt for the local Spanish schools. This will allow you to live in any part of the island but is perhaps more suitable for younger children who are more adaptable.

We would also advise plenty of first-hand research in the localities you are considering – just as in the UK and other countries, the quality of schools varies from one to another.

Referring again to Mallorca’s international schools, places are limited, so we advise visiting them and discuss availability of places as early as possible to stand the best chance of getting a place.
