We are hopefully moving to Madrid later this year. We have two girls, 8 and 6. I have been looking at Endaze international school and The English Montessori school, can anyone advise me on these two schools? Also what is Boadilla sel Monte like to live in? Or also Aravaca? Which is best for families and also for trains into the city? Thank you in advance.

I heard very warm and exciting reviews of Endaze international school. I know that they stick to the British system of education so children would be able to enter universities not only in Spain, but in UK too

Hi Tareth,

Madrid's extensive public transport system means you can get to any point in the city quickly and conveniently, and expat families will find an impressive number of private schools (with bilingual or full English curricula) in the city.

Take a look at the Scandinavian School of Madrid, they have both, a Swedish Section and an International Section, this one uses English as the language of instruction and follows the Cambridge Primary and Secondary Curriculum (with IGSCE & A Levels).

They are located in "La Moraleja", a small and very familiar school with small sized classes.
