San Pedro


At Laude San Pedro International College we strive to be the international school of choice for the national and expatriate community in Marbella, pursuing academic excellence whilst reflecting the identity of our students in all of our work and school celebrations.

Our educational provision, offering the full British Curriculum (the International Primary Curriculum, GCSEs and ALevels) and Spanish equivalent (ESO and Bachillerato) in a happy and inclusive environment are unique in the area; whilst our cutting-edge learning technology and state of the art performing arts and sports facilities are some of the factors that set us apart from the other Schools.

Our GCSE and A Level results, as well as the Spanish Selectividad, are well above the national averages in both countries and we will continue working in this direction to ensure our students have the best opportunities to enter top universities worldwide and be successful and progress in their future careers.

For international students who have just relocated we also offer an extremely successful Accelerated English Programme and Personalised Student Services, so that pupils have the support they need to access the curriculum and make amazing progress.

Malaga city’s much-anticipated Christmas light display will have a celebrity start this evening (Friday) when actor Antonio Banderas gets the job of flicking the switch.

This year the city’s central light displays have been completely renewed, although the central Calle Larios will still be the scene for a light and music show every evening between now and 6 January. Events kick off this evening at 6.30pm.

Among the new features this year is the projection of a Christmas story in Calle Alcazabilla, with the Alcazaba castle as the backdrop. From Saturday these shows will adopt a regular timetable coinciding with the displays in Calle Larios, at 6.30pm, 8pm and 9.30pm.

The newly pedestrianised and landscaped Alameda Principal will also be one of the city’s focal points. Private funding from El Corte Ingés, the Metro construction group and Fundación Unicaja has contributed to a new show focusing on an ancient ficus tree close to Calle Larios. The enchanted tree will come to life every evening, with regular times from Saturday at 7.15pm, 9pm and 10.15pm.


Christmas spirit also arrives this weekend in towns around the region as lights go on. Fuengirola’s big switch-on is scheduled for 7.30pm this evening (Friday) in the Plaza de España. The evening will also see the opening of the Christmas market and a dance display.


Saturday (30 November) is the big night for Marbella, where the focal point will be the “big Christmas tree” in Avenida del Mar which will offer its own light and music show at 6.30pm, 7.30pm and 8.30pm. Festivities this evening kick off in the Paseo de la Alameda with a street parade and children’s party from 5pm.

San Pedro

Neighbouring San Pedro also starts the season this Saturday with a children’s street parade from the Plaza de la Iglesia. The big switch-on will be at 7pm, which will be followed by a free concert from Merche (Spanish singer). The music and light show in Marqués de Duero will take place three times every evening, at 6.30, 7.30 and 8.30pm
