Parent Ambassadors

Parent Ambassadors

The Parent Ambassador role demonstrates a personal commitment to positively promote and represent Sotogrande International School, while learning more about SIS and the educational path you have chosen for your child.

The role of the Parent Ambassador is simple: to believe in the school, to communicate the great results that we achieve, and be very, very proud of the wonderful, confident, articulate and engaging and well-rounded students that emerge from SIS!

Our school community is passionate about learning, which is a complex process. SIS focuses on inspiring all children that join our school and wants pupils to have inspirational experiences. We have very high expectations of learning and teaching standards; therefore it is vitally important that our teachers know how pupils best access and understand information so that they are able to create exciting opportunities for our students to flourish.

How to Become a Parent Ambassador

All SIS parents are welcome to apply to join the Parent Ambassador programme. We organise a Personal Development programme to show Parent Ambassadors how and why personalised learning works.

Discovery Days are a tour of SIS and the school facilities. They are great fun and are designed to help you learn a great deal more about SIS, from the fundamental aspects of our mission, to the Diploma programme.

A Practical Workshop for Parents: “How to support your child’s learning beyond the classroom”

In collaboration with the Heads of Learning, we hold hands-on workshops, where parents can attend classes in action and see how their children learn first-hand. Workshops will be available from the Autumn term:
