Hi - can I please get some info on schools/colleges for 16-18 year olds.  We are hoping to relocate to the Costa Blanca South area when our daughter finishes her GCSEs next June.  

1.  Is the education system to same as in the UK, ie. Does she need to stay in the system until she reaches the age of 18?

2.  Are there English speaking schools/colleges local to the area?

3.  Would we have to pay school/college fees?  Any idea how much?

Thanks in anticipation. I have tried looking for these answers on the internet but without success!

... I don't know if there is a legal requirement to stay in education until 18, but without it she will have very limited career options. Youth unemployment is very high in Spain

2.  Are there English speaking schools/colleges local to the area?

... State schools operate in Spanish. There are several international schools in the area

3.  Would we have to pay school/college fees?  Any idea how much?

... here is an example school's website, just across the Murcia border ... https://newcastelar.com/
