SCHOOLS

Thank you excellent information, however, if possible a real life view would be appreciated ie people with children already at the schools in Alhaurin el Grande and how their kids are getting on etc etc.

Thanks again though, have downloaded the booklet.

PRIVATE HEALTH CARE

Hi

Can anybody recommend any Private Health Care Companies in Spain. Ideally reasonable, family cover and prepared to insure with health problems. This is proving more difficult than I imagined.

Thanks

And another question

Does anybody know of an acting school or a Drama school in the Costa del Sol. I think I have heard of something like this in the Benalmadena area although I am not sure.
