Bilingual Colegio Atalaya

Who we are:

Colegio Atalaya is located in the municipality of Estepona and is easily accessible from Marbella, San Pedro, Benahavis and other neighbouring municipalities. The school was founded as a private educational institution in 2014, marking the culmination of a project launched in 2012 under the initiative and development of the founding partners (the Mata and the Mateos families), with a view to creating a school equipped to offer families an educational project that would respond to the demands of today’s world.

The commitment of these two families, the management team and the teaching and non-teaching staff have allowed the school to become a reference in the educational sector, combining the best aspects of Spanish and English educational traditions while incorporating modern methodology to allow our students to develop to their full potential within a healthy, safe and happy environment.

Educational model:

Colegio Atalaya offers a bilingual educational model where the student is the protagonist and the teacher’s role is not only to transmit knowledge but also to stimulate their curiosity and encourage experimentation, discovery, social skills and creativity. We are committed to educational innovation and to the use of active learning methods, such as cooperative learning, which encourage collaborative knowledge building in an environment of tolerance and mutual respect.

Our learning pathway provides our students with highly developed skills in our two main languages: English and Spanish. We have built a linguistic environment in which our students learn languages in the most similar way possible to the way we learn our native language: first language immersion, with the development of basic communication skills, then moving on to the formal analysis of the language and then, little by little, delving into the study of the literary tradition. All of the language skills acquired are certified through the Cambridge exams, for which we are a registered Cambridge English preparation and examination centre. As a complement to this language education, from first year of Primary Education all of our students study German as a third language.

It is also our understanding that learning should relate to today’s reality and to situations that motivate our students. With this in mind, we are committed to the use of information and communication technologies in the classroom and to hands-on learning methods that encourage investigation, participation and the integration of all students.

Each and every student is important to us and, for this reason, we propose an education that offers individualised monitoring and attention. We are convinced that the most appropriate atmosphere to achieve the best results is created through cooperation and communication with the families, thus allowing our students to reach their full potential.

As a complement to the education offered at Colegio Atalaya we also offer extracurricular academic, recreational, social and sports activities. Our goal is to form well-rounded individuals, expanding their horizons beyond academic aspects and providing them with the tools they need to become active, discerning, involved and healthy individuals. All of this contributes to their personal maturity and prepares them to face the challenges they will encounter in the future.




If you are looking for a school for your child, we would be very happy to show you our facilities and explain, in greater detail, the educational project we have on offer.
