At Sotogrande International School we recognise that each child is unique and therefore flourish in different environments. For this reason we have developed a small network of trusted host families who welcome boarders into their homes during the school term. Host families offer a warm, friendly environment in which students live, study and enjoy day to day life.

Boarding Options

Coarding options + SIS Full Boarding

Students who board full-time benefit not only from supervised study time and weekday activities, but also enjoy the full programme of weekend activities. During the week, boarders concentrate on their academic studies, as well as participating in a wide range of leisure and sporting activities. Weekends are a time for fun, with lots of opportunities to learn new skills, enjoy trips out and pursue interests.

Boarding options + weekday boarding

Weekday Boarding offers students the opportunity to experience the fun of boarding life as well as the extra, supported, study time Monday to Friday, while spending weekends at home with family and friends. This option is perfect for students who would normally have a long daily commute.

Boarding options + Flexi boarding

Flexi-boarding is provided for working families, allowing students to stay, for example, just a few nights per week or a week or two each month. This is a great introduction to boarding life and particularly popular with parents who are regularly abroad.

Boarding Options + School family suport

Families with children at Sotogrande International School have the option of using the Boarding House on a more ad-hoc basis. We can happily offer occasional boarding to cover for parental travel, work commitments or for students who want to get a taste of what Boarding is like. This option is only possible where we have available places at the Boarding House.


Sotogrande International Boarding House seeks to cater for all individuals and all families. As a result, we have a clear understanding that a flexibile provision is important. We therefore offer a wealth of different Boarding options to suit every family
