In addition to the evident physical and mental benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle, participation in sporting activity encourages students to develop personal values such as perseverance, self-discipline, teamwork and cooperation. For pupils at Agora Sant Cugat International School, sport forms an essential part of the curriculum: we try to encourage a passion for active and healthy habits, establishing patterns of behaviour that will help our students to grow into physically and emotionally balanced adults.
Agora Sant Cugat International School boasts a magnificent multi-use sports facility and a great sports club, accommodating the needs of each sport offered by our centre. Our facilities include two grass football pitches, basketball and handball courts, two padel courts, one tennis court, an indoor multi-sport centre and a 25-metre indoor swimming pool.
Pupils choose from a wide range of sports on offer, including basketball, football, tennis, padel, handball, swimming, volleyball, skating, yoga or modern dance, among others. All our students participate in swimming lessons and our swimming pool is the venue for a Federation swimming gala.
The school has extensive sporting facilities (13,715 m2), including a full-size Astroturf football pitch, four hard courts, two gymnasiums, and more. Throughout Infant and Primary students have a weekly swimming lesson and pupils are invited to participate in school and leagues fixtures, as well as larger sporting events organised throughout the year. The pupils at Agora Sant Cugat International School enjoy numerous sporting events over the course of the school year: skiing and snowboarding week in Andorra and La Molina, the Bicycle Race against Hunger and the Fair Play Tournament during the “Fiesta Major”, the Sports Day, and the Rhythmic Gymnastics and Dance Festival. Sports Camps, multi-sports programmes and skills improvement sessions are organised during the summer and Easter holidays.
We also organise events such as the Volkswagen Junior Masters of Football Tournament, talks, and school events with the participation of elite sportspeople such as world padel tennis champion Fernando Belasteguin; David López, former pupil and Espanyol FC player; Gemma Mengual, synchronised swimming champion; or F.C. Barcelona players, thanks to whom our young sportspeople play an exhibition match in front of the spectators at the Palau Blaugrana during half time at some Indoor Football League matches.
As well as taking part in sports within the mainstream curriculum, students at Agora Sant Cugat International School are also invited to participate in a range of international sporting events organised by the Globeducate group. These events celebrate sporting excellence and healthy competition and provide an opportunity for our international community to gather together. The Globeducate Olympic Games is an international Olympic-style event that brings together over 500 athletes from Globeducate’s schools around the world. In addition to promoting an active lifestyle, our students also participate in a comprehensive health project, focussing on good nutrition and healthy eating.
