First days are always exciting and a little nerve-wracking and it was no different for our opening day at Phoenix College Málaga.

At about 8:30 in the morning the first students started to arrive and were welcomed by Mr Mitchell, Ms Ridyard and Mr Riley. It was great to see them all: some new faces and many familiar to us. The strange thing is how normal everything felt and how quickly we fell into the routine of everyday school life, as if Phoenix College Málaga had always been there.

We know that with the students and staff we have at Phoenix College it is going to be a wonderful place to work, learn and to develop in every possible way.

We would like to thank all of the parents, students, partners, teachers as well as our supporting families and friends, who make up the broader Phoenix community, which we are all part of. Without your support and commitment, this first day at Phoenix would never have been possible.
