Default Working in Private Schools (not academies)

Having worked for a couple of years in Academias, I was hoping of getting a job in a private school (maybe a bilingual one) for September. However, I'm a bit confused about the legal requirements. I have the Celta but no PGCE. One bilingual school I contacted said the PGCE is required. I know this is true for state schools, but thought private schools would be different. Maybe the fact that the distinction between private/state and church schools is more blurred in Spain is important here?

From the experience of several teacher pals working in Spain I think that the requirements are simply those of the school. My wife has the PGCE and has worked in Madrid and Elche in private schools but some of her colleagues had no teaching qualifications other than being native english speakers and available.
