Let me help you find the Best School for your Child in Madrid


Sinéad’s School Search provides parents and children with bespoke advice and education options to fit a family’s individual circumstances.

Your child’s education and contentment is my top priority and I will work along side you throughout the school search process, providing support and guidance from start to finish.

No matter what level of service you choose, at the start of the process I get to know more about your child’s needs through an indepth questionnare so when we have our first call I already have a clear idea of your requirements. 

The school search packages vary depending on the level of support and range from an online consultation to a fully bespoke service tailored to meet complex, urgent or other specific circumstances.

Online 1h Consultation

This is ideal for families who have narrowed down their schools to a shortlist  and need support making the final decision. 

Classic School Search

This is ideal for families who need help and advice in identifying two schools but prefer to navigate the enrolment process alone afterwards.

Premium School Search

This is ideal for families who need support and advice every step of the way. Three schools will be selected and Sinéad can join you on school visits.

Late Application

This is ideal for families who wish to apply to public and or concertado schools but have missed the regular application dates (usually in April). 

Steps into Spain made it super easy for us to choose our daughters school in Madrid and the registration process a breeze!
Thank you Sinead for helping our family setting up in this adventure!

I had an excellent experience with Sinead (Steps into Spain) in our venture to find the right schools for our children, prior to moving to Madrid.
I chose to use this service as we needed the knowledge of someone local ‘in the know’ and of course her being Irish like myself was a bonus.
I believe her service has made a significant difference in the choice of school for our children. The personalised attention to detail was greatly appreciated, especially as our kids had a slightly atypical schooling background in English and French.

Would definitely recommend!
