Sport is fundamental for the children’s comprehensive education, it supports their social skills and helps them to learn the wide range of values implicit in it.

Games and fun find new travel companions such as respect, effort, tolerance, camaraderie, discipline, perseverance, and team work, always accompanied by top professionals who help with the acquisition of knowledge and enable our pupils to be great sportspeople.

The school competitions are a tool through which pupils can develop and put their acquired skills into practice, without prioritising pure competition over training, never excluding anyone, but integrating pupils with greater difficulties into those sports organised by the school.

On a global level, Agora Sant Cugat International School participates each year in the NACE Olympic Games. This is a competition organised by NACE Schools which promotes sport and international education, while welcoming students of different nationalities, cultures, and languages, from the different schools in the group.

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 the participation of elite sportspeople in school events (such as world padel tennis champion Fernando Belasteguin; David López, former pupil and Espanyol FC player; Gema 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.

Our facilities, with an artificial grass pitch, the very latest padel tennis courts, different multi-sports pitches, and other multi-purpose areas enable participation in sport in privileged and unrivalled surroundings.

WHAT THOSE INVOLVED HAVE TO SAY

“From the Sports Department, and with over twenty years of experience at the school, we believe that sport is fundamental for our pupils’ comprehensive education. In all these years we have grown as professionals, as they have as sportspeople. Physical and sporting education has been and will be a very important part of our education in values.

Throughout all these years the school has also evolved a great deal, both in sports facilities, with a football field, new padel courts, and different multi-sports courts, and in sporting projects, participating in different international competitions and sports events throughout the school year.

Through sport and physical activity we encourage the acquisition of habits and our pupils learn to know their own bodies, their own limits, and accept them, though always seeking personal self-improvement. Work and effort is an essential characteristic within physical education, a value which will help them a great deal throughout their lives, without forgetting the fun side of sport.

We also encourage teamwork, collaboration, and co-operation in order to reach one same goal, encouraging respect for others, and valuing the skills and characteristics of each pupil.

At the school, we also want to place particular importance on swimming, and for this reason, it is an activity which is part of the school’s curricular project from 2 to 12 years old.

With all this, the subject of physical education and extracurricular sports provide our pupils with a healthy life and the option of an education rich in values.”“From the Sports Department, and with over twenty years of experience at the school, we believe that sport is fundamental for our pupils’ comprehensive education.
