Welcome from Elizabeth Batchelor, Principal
Welcome to Aloha College, a school with over 30 years’ experience in providing a British-based education to an International Community representing over 50 nationalities. We are a family school with pupils from 3 – 18 years.
Academic achievements are exceedingly important, with many of our pupils ending their learning journey with offers from top universities all over the world.
Alongside this, we place a great emphasis on fostering strong values; Care, Respect, Effort, Honesty and Resilience are essential for our pupils’ development as unique individuals. We encourage our whole-school community, governors, staff, parents and students to adopt these values, which underpin our high expectations of behaviour.
Aloha College is a British school in Marbella with a community made up of 3 sections: Primary, Secondary and Administration.
Each section is overseen by a separate manager; who reports directly to Aloha College’s Principal, Mrs Elizabeth Batchelor. All work closely together as a team to ensure a cohesive and integrated whole-school ethos.
The pupils and parents of Aloha College are served by a committed, professional staff carefully selected to provide the highest quality of expertise.
All teaching staff are fully qualified, the vast majority having trained in the UK, or in Spain (for subjects taught in Spanish). The College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its pupils; therefore all employees are required to obtain an enhanced DBS Disclosure or its equivalent and follow Safeguarding Policy and Practice.
The teaching staff have to be excellent practitioners. They need to have the ability to inspire pupil learning and raise pupil achievement and demonstrate this in a caring, secure environment.
The College offers excellent opportunities for professional development. Each academic year begins with a mini conference where all staff share good practice and learn from recognised educational consultants, keeping them up to date with worldwide educational issues. Throughout the year, the college supports extensive staff training, particularly in the areas of IB and A level. All managers attend one external conference per year.
The teaching staff is well supported by an administration department of 16 members of staff.
