It’s easy to see the appeal of expat life on Spain’s Canary Islands. Sun, sea, sand - need we say more? Gran Canaria sits right in the middle of the archipelago, so its capital Las Palmas makes for a convenient base for exploring the rest of the islands - not to mention flying back to mainland Spain or elsewhere in Europe.

When it comes to international schools in Gran Canaria, Las Palmas is the place to be. All but two of the island’s international schools are located in Las Palmas or the towns surrounding it, such as Los Hoyos, Los Lentiscos, Almatriche and Trasmontana. Within Las Palmas, the Ciudad Jardin neighbourhood is home to three international schools.

Whether you prefer to be among the hustle and bustle of Las Palmas or the more relaxed coastal towns, Gran Canaria’s international schools are all easily reachable by car. This is a small island, remember - the journey from Las Palmas in the north to Maspalomas in the south takes less than 40 minutes. School buses are also a common feature in Las Palmas’ international schools should driving not be an option for you.

While the Canary Islands may not have the wide choice of international schools available in mainland Spain’s cities, such as Barcelona or Madrid, there is still an array of curricula on offer in Las Palmas. British, Spanish, International Baccalaureate or IB, French, German and American curricula can all be found in this small city. Fees are also somewhat lower than the mainland, depending on the school in question.

International schools in Spain can receive government funding if their student body is at least 25% native Spanish students. It is therefore common for international schools to have a high proportion of local students, often much higher than the 25% minimum. International schools in Las Palmas are no different - in some schools, Spanish is the most common nationality in the student body.

Due to the high numbers of local students, both Spanish and English are offered as languages of instruction in most Las Palmas international schools. You’ll also find both native English and native Spanish teachers. As for other facilities and features, you can expect the same standards you would find in international schools throughout the rest of Spain, and indeed throughout the rest of Europe. That means small class sizes, a variety of extra-curricular activities, extra language classes, digital technology in classrooms, and much more.
