More than 1,000 students from Sotogrande International School, Spain, continue their classes despite the announcement of the temporary closure of educational centres by the Junta de Andalucia. The school, a member of the Inspired Education Group, will provide an interactive programme during regular school hours that allows students to “attend” virtual classes and interact directly with their teachers.
The virtual system facilitates both the continuation of the academic curriculum and direct communication between parents, teachers and students. The online programme includes virtual classes, video tutorials, daily exercises and group dynamics, and is provided during usual school hours, Monday through to Friday, to all educational stages.
Lessons are being delivered interactively via a variety of online programmes, some of which are already a part of Sotogrande International School’s innovative approach to learning, which means the transition to a virtual school is made simpler for both students and teachers.

No matter where you are in the world right now, Sotogrande International School is ready and waiting to welcome students and families into their virtual school community.
Children from the age of 2 to 18 are creatively engaged in lessons delivered through a range of digital learning platforms. Following the IB curriculum, online classes are a mixture of:
- Live lessons
- 1:1 support
- Student-led inquiries
- Group debates
Learning this way is providing students with an unrivalled opportunity to develop their time management, organisational, and communication skills, and improve their knowledge of, and ability to use, a wide range of technology while working in a fully supported virtual environment.
As an Apple Distinguished School, our teachers are IT literate and confident in creating and delivering interesting and engaging ‘virtual lessons’. The timetable ensures students receive a balance of academic, physical and off-line activities all designed by our qualified, experienced and dedicated teaching team.
Lessons are delivered from Monday to Friday, typically from 9 am until 3 or 4 pm. If you would like more information about our virtual school, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
