Since 1982

Aloha College Marbella offers a British-style education for the international community, while offering education in Spanish language and culture, enabling students to gain qualifications from both the British and Spanish examination systems.

The school was founded in 1982 by six teachers, at the behest of local and expatriate families, who invested their own money in what was then and is to this day a not-for-profit-making project. The school has grown from 210 pupils to over 800 currently and from one small building which housed everyone to the present 27,000 m² of buildings and sport/recreational areas.
