    I now realise that i know this school very well.
    It's on the outskirts of Marbella, on the road to Fuengirola. Originally the site was that of a small hotel, and some of the classrooms are in the original chalet-style hotel rooms. Very attractive.
    Since then, under the guiding light of an excellent Director, it has grown in numbers and premises, with some excellent ICT and Science blocks.
    There is a pecking order among the schools in this area and this is near or at the top, with excellent exam results. Student population very international, cosmopolitan and very affluent. The sixth formers have much better cars than the teachers!
    I realise that I have overdone the word excellent. Substitute another of your choice, but it reflects my view of this school.
    Best wishes

    Oh, sounds amazing, I don't know if I could feel at home in such a place. Will send the application and see, it's very confusing though. If you have time maybe you could have a look at it? I would really appreciate it.

    I'm confused mainly on two parts


    1. additional information
    2. commitment to extra curricular programme

    no 2 I wrote the things I would be available to do extra curricular, i.e. ict and drama, i could put more but there's no room!

    and then for no 1 i feel it could be a repeat of no 2? I'm not sure what to put in that box

    Sorry if this message is a bit muddled, but so is my head :-o

    thanks again

    Sorry, Mairead pronounced to rhyme with parade . . . Sorry, but no, I can't give individualised advice like that.
    |Once I started I'd never stop, and Mrs TG would never get me to wash up for her . . .
    Good luck

    Mairead, have you also looked at the other school on the Costa del sol that's looking KS1/2 (i think) I don't know how the wages compare to the one you are talking about but I knew people who were happy there.
