Hi, I am looking to move to Majorca with my young family. Looking for a progressive primary & secondary school that ideally teaches bilingually. From my research these international schools charge 10k+/year - which is out of my budget. In London we attend a Waldorf school . Any advise would be very welcomed. Maybe a, part private, or government school , in nice grounds, caring teaching, academic - just seems difficult to find.Anthony
Hi, myself and my husband, with our son (who turns 4 in June 2017), are relocating to Soller in August. We are looking for any information regarding pre-school options in Soller. I have received a list of 5 local schools and 2 concertadas from the Ajuntament in Soller, all of which I have contacted to arrange a visiting appointment while over in March. I would greatly appreciate if anyone can offer any advice or recommendations regarding schools in Soller.Our son attends creche here in Ireland at present. He does not speak spanish or catalan/mallorquin.
Hello. I'd really appreciate some advice on relocating to Mallorca ( I have never even been!) as I don't know where to start! I have two young children (1 and 4) and my husband works in the yacht industry. We recently came to the realisation that financially it would make much more sense for us to move abroad for a couple of years at least and rent our house in Bath out. My husband is away 10 months a year so I'd be doing this mainly on my own. Mallorca appeals from the research I've done. I speak Spanish and Catalan as grew up in Catalunya and would start Spanish lessons for my daughter before a move with a view to her attending a local school. I'm thinking Soller might be a good place for us but is difficult to judge with not a great deal of info. I like the idea of a multinational area but would not want to be surrounded by non Spanish speaking Brits. I have no idea how to go about getting info on local schools or basically anything! Please advise me where to start! It's not really realistic for me to travel over a lot on my own with the two little ones so would like to gain info before I come over for a recce. Thanks so much!
Is there a one off payment from the Spanish government for having a child here? A young couple I know have just fallen. They're not in a very good position financially and am just trying to find out as much information about financial support as possible for them. Thanks for any information you may have.
We are an English family moving to Sol de Mallorca in November. We have lived in France for several years and have a health card. This will need to be suurendered as we are leaving France permanently. I am wondering about health insurance. Should we get private insurance as we won't be entitled to Spanish health immediately. We have a 3 year old Daughter so, need to make sure all in place as far as being covered for health goes.
