School Sites


Botafogo Site

The current oldest school site is located at Botafogo and was developed in the 1940s on land held in trust for the British community.

Consequently, the school shares the site with Christ Church and the British and Commonwealth Society. The students at Botafogo are between 2 and 12 years of age. The Primary School and the first year of Secondary School are based in various facilities at this site, including the Cashman Building; the Mackenzie Building; the Thompson House; and two independent houses for Pre-Nursery and Nursery.

“I love bringing Chloe to school because it’s such a revival moment. I love these stairs because my graduation pictures were taken on the stairs, so a lot of good memories.”

Barbara Makant, Class of 1993
