A new multi-million euro second campus for the British School of Marbella will open its doors to students this year.
The state of the art building is being built near the Monte Paraiso Golf course and will house the school’s older year groups.
Located on a 60,000 m2 plot of land, BSM Monte Paraiso is being constructed in several phases and will eventually accommodate all years up to A-Level students.
Once building work is complete, the school will boast world class facilities including a football pitch, basketball and tennis courts, a swimming pool and a theatre for school productions.
The British School of Marbella currently has a campus on Calle Jacinto Benavente in the centre of town, but this will remain open for the Foundation Stage and Lower Primary aged children – with shuttle busses running between the two schools.
Head Teacher Sian Kirkham, said: “This is a very exciting time for the BSM community. The new site is in a beautiful location on a huge plot of land offering so much potential – there really are no limits to what we can achieve. The new campus will allow our commitment to sports and the arts to flourish. I am looking forward to having the excellent facilities to match the outstanding educational experience we offer at BSM.”
Michael Elms, Director at the British Schools Group, said: “The new campus will be located at Monte Paraiso Golf, a short five-minute drive from our current campus. It will provide dedicated sports and leisure facilities on a 60,000 m2 plot, and a 3,000 m2 school building which will cater for the growing student body as they progress into secondary education.”
The British School of Marbella opened in 2010 and follows the English national curriculum.
Part of the British Schools Group, it has sister schools in Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Moscow, Nanjing, Navarra, New York, Sao Paulo, Tashkent and Yangon.
