Welcome to the English International College

The English International College, established in 1982 and situated on the Costa del Sol in Marbella, is one of the longest-established schools in the area. As a British International School, we follow the British curriculum and have consistently achieved outstanding academic results. Our students graduate annually to some of the world's best universities, testament to our high educational standards. We pride ourselves in ensuring that student talents are encouraged and nurtured across not only the academic field, but in the sporting and cultural ones. We are passionate about developing young people to be inquisitive, independent learners who are confident to express their ideas and opinions, whilst demonstrating tolerance and respect.

Our teachers are passionate about the learning that takes place here, ensuring that students are challenged to reach their potential in a caring and supportive environment. It is important for us that we continue to innovate both what we do and the opportunities that we provide to students, ensuring they are equipped and ready for the world around them.

The key to our success is the strong working relationships that are forged and maintained between our academic staff and students. In our care, students feel comfortable to question, to take risks and to ask for help. Our job is to help guide them through the highs and lows of growing up in an ever-changing and fast-paced world, whilst maintaining their own happiness and well-being.
