Sotogrande International School is a World IB School offering the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (3 – 11 years old). The curriculum is inquiry-based and concept-driven which equips students with the skills needed for their future. For our youngest students (4 months – 3 years) we have a separate Reggio Emilia inspired Early Years Centre, Fundamentals.
At Sotogrande, not only do we strive for academic excellence, but we focus on the development of the whole child, using a multitude of exciting learning environments. Classrooms are modern and equipped with the latest Apple technology, allowing teachers to be creative and prepare interactive and fun lessons. Outside children have access to playgrounds, woodlands with play areas and even a bug hotel!
Our established, passionate and experienced teaching teams offer a personalised approach to learning, providing extraordinary educational experiences that allow our students to connect with, and explore their passions and purpose. Within Primary this is supported by teams of homeroom teachers, teaching assistants and specialists in Spanish, music, drama, sports and technology. In addition, we have dedicated Student Support Services, an English Language Development department and a peripatetic music team.
We offer a full and varied extra-curricular activities programme providing many opportunities for students to explore their unique interests, gifts and talents. Activities range from music and expressive arts to STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths), chess and sporting clubs.
