When the school opened its doors on January, 2000 the building coverage of 63,224 square feet, the initial enrolment was expected to grow to 300 students to a maximum of 450. Between the years 2005 to present, as part of ISPS Facility Capital Planning several teaching spaces were built to accommodate the delivery of the expanded curriculum and growing enrollment. As such, today the current building coverage is 82,967 sq. ft.
On September 15, 2008, seeing the limitations of the site to provide sufficient green space for athletic and other outdoor activities, ISPS signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Westmoorings South East Limited, to gain access to an additional 1.0949 hectares (30,734 sq. ft/2 acres). This Park located along the north eastern end of the site provides limited access to ISPS between the hours of 7.00am and 4.30pm. The park offers two playing fields, a practice field, a football field and jogging track. These facilities are used for physical and community events (Sports Days and Inter-school sporting competitions).
The school was designed to meet international standards for teacher to student ratios while providing sufficient access to general services such as washroom facilities, cafeteria services and basic medical treatment at the Nurse’s clinic. The physical educational needs of the students is also of great priority with the indoor and outdoor spaces created for our students to appreciate, explore a variety of interests, and pursue their passion.
