    Hi everyone, I’m interested in a school in Sitges that is currently advertising. Please can anyone share any info on it? Thanks for your time

    Hi,

    There are a couple out there - not sure which one.
    Make sure you're being paid for 12 months and it's not a 9 1/2 month contract.
    Cost of living is VERY high there - you'll be looking at a minimum of 700 p/m for rent (not a house, just a flat) not to mention just living, so make sure they pay above the convenio (union agreed minimum pay - about 1,500 p/m after tax).

    Good luck!

    My sister lived there, and very nice area. Its very expensive and you will be earning barely enough to survive.

    Can't comment on the school, obviously, but I've visited Sitges and (although beautiful) it's a very 'touristy' part of Spain. Factor that in to your expected life-style. Also, the location could have a big impact on the type of school and (most importantly) - the intake. Find out what sort of children attend the school. The school I write about is 98% Spanish children being taught in an 'immersion' style. Very different to a school with a majority of children being Brits, or Germans or a mix. I don't say this would be better or worse, just a very different experience, I'd imagine. Good luck. I've been in Spain over 13 years now having come on a 2-year contract... ´nuff said.
