Our primary school follows the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), specifically  designed for children from 3 to 12 years old. The PYP is an integrated approach to teaching and learning that balances the search for understanding, the acquisition of essential knowledge and skills, the development of positive attitudes and the opportunity for positive action.

At the heart of the PYP is a commitment to using structured inquiry as a vehicle for learning. Students are encouraged to think for themselves and generate and respond to questions, taking responsibility for their own learning. At SIS we strive to inspire a spirit of inquiry in all our students and to prepare them  to be responsible global citizens. We believe parents are essential partners in children’s education and it is the child’s environment, both at home and at school which helps to nurture happy, inquisitive learners.

For a further information on how the we embrace the PYP at Sotogrande International School please see our  Early Childhood Handbook for students age 3 to 5  and the PYP Handbook for students age 5 to 12.
