As a school growing in numbers we now also need to grow in size and facilities. In December 2019 we began an ambitious building project which will see our campus grow!
Our new building will include 20 new secondary classrooms, allowing our departments to cluster together, a new IB Diploma common room, for our oldest students, a new staffroom, offices and a wonderful entrance space. The views from the new building are simply breathtaking and look over La reserva towards the sea. They will be a truly inspirational learning environment for all students.
Being at the cutting edge of 21st Century learning, the interior design of the classrooms have been created using student agency as a guide. We have created flexible learning environments that enable students to have choice over where and how they sit to approach different tasks. We will have tiered seating in some classrooms, to allow presentations, foldable tables, which will allow large spaces to be created quickly and different height tables and chairs, to cater for student needs.
Our current sporting facilities at the school will be increased to provide a new 5 a side astro football pitch and a multi surface sports area.
Once the secondary building is complete, we will remodel the current main building, creating new learning spaces for our oldest primary students, allowing us to expand to 4 classes in one of these year groups. Our library will be remodeled to enable more space and learning opportunities for all students.
We are very excited with the plans for the expansion of Sotogrande International School and look forward to seeing our classrooms ready for use in January 2021, while our other facilities we expect to follow soon after.
