Sotogrande International School, founded in 1978, is a leading international, British-style, co-educational, day and boarding school, offering a high quality education to the international community of southern Europe and northern Africa.

In 2001, the school moved to a new campus on the Costa del Sol, with views of the Mediterranean Sea and surrounding countryside. The campus is designed to reflect the school’s philosophy of collaborative learning that develops active, high-achieving, life-long learners, with an understanding and appreciation of the cultural diversity.

The school applies innovative teaching and learning strategies that prepare pupils for a technological, multicultural and global society. The Primary School is preparing for implementation of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. Secondary students follow a programme based on the best of international, English and Spanish curricula leading to IGCSE examinations in Year 11 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme is offered in Years 12-13. There is a diverse extra-curricular programme, with many activities making use of the wealth of nearby facilities.

School facilities include three teaching buildings surrounding a central Learning Centre which houses a theatre, multimedia library and research centre, computer suite, art and music studios, adult education centre, cafeteria and main reception. The Early Years building includes a specialist library and a playground onto which each classroom has direct access. The Primary school is based on the ‘pod’ concept where collaborative learning is encouraged through integrated projects. The Secondary school is also arranged in pods, with each one reflecting a particular area of the syllabus. The science pod includes three modern, well-equipped science laboratories.

A wireless communication network links the entire campus and many classrooms have data- projectors and interactive white boards to enable the use of technology as a tool for learning.

The school’s commitment to outdoor and physical education is reflected in the sports facilities which include a large multi-purpose sports hall, 25m swimming pool and an all-weather sports pitch and running track.

Boarders live in a modern, spacious boarding house on the campus. Boarders have access to school facilities that provide excellent opportunities for recreation and study.

The school is also authorized by the Spanish authorities and offers a convalidated programme that allows students to prepare for entry to Spanish universities. A programme of English language and special educational needs support is offered.
