An Inspired School

Sotogrande International school is a learning community passionate about providing an International Education, which inspires and encourages learning and intercultural understanding.

At Sotogrande International School, we believe that being a global citizen goes well beyond simply traveling around the globe or living an expatriate lifestyle; it refers to a more holistic view of the world, understanding the commonalities we share and recognizing our responsibility to help our fellow man and safeguard our planet’s future.

As a whole school community, we define Global Citizenship as:

  • being aware of, learning about and understanding the world beyond ourselves; our planet, all people and species with whom we share it
  • demonstrating and promoting values of compassion, respect and acceptance for all people, diverse cultures and beliefs; embracing cultural differences and commonalities
  • taking personal responsibility and working interdependently to create local and global sustainable solutions for a more peaceful, inclusive and united world.

With this in mind, we have developed a unique Global Citizenship Programme at Sotogrande International School which empowers learners to assume active roles to face and resolve global challenges taking proactive personal responsibility for creating a more peaceful and sustainable world. Guided by the UNESCO and The Council of International Schools, we have created a framework for the Global Citizenship Programme linked to, what we believe, are the four pillars of Global Citizenship.
