Sport plays a key part in an all-round education. Aside from the obvious benefits for personal health and fitness, there is an intrinsic ethical dimension to sporting activity. Through sport, students develop values such as respect, tolerance, cooperation, discipline, perseverance and teamwork. Our sports staff are highly qualified professionals who are dedicated to helping every student to achieve their physical potential and personal goals and teaching them to work successfully as part of a team. For pupils at Agora International School Andorra, 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 International School Andorra has excellent sports facilities, which include a covered sports centre, an indoor swimming pool, outdoor sports courts and an excellent ski programme with ski slopes practically adjacent to the school site. Swimming forms an important part of the Early Years and Primary curriculum and pupils can also participate in baby gymnastics, soccer, tennis, kung-fu, skiing or chess. Skiing lessons are taught in English by qualified instructors and the school offers a High-performance Sport Programme with unique opportunities for the preparation of elite athletes: we will make sure that their personal, academic and sporting needs are carefully considered.
As well as taking part in sports within the mainstream curriculum, students at Agora International School Andorra 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.
The Principality of Andorra offers excellent benefits to athletes to help them to improve their athletic performance. Our facilities are located at an altitude of 1,250 metres above sea level and 10 minutes from the ski slopes, and we can therefore offer unique opportunities for the preparation of elite athletes. At Agora International School Andorra, we offer various study-sports programmes that are tailored to the specific needs of each student, ensuring that their training programmes coincide appropriately with their academic studies. We will make sure that their personal and sporting needs are carefully considered including: academic preparation, sports-specific and general training, nutrition and rest.Find out more
Football is a sport that inspires passion, requiring players to be responsible, disciplined, clear-thinking and focussed on success. Agora International School Andorra, in collaboration with the Andorran Football Federation and supported by UEFA, has established an educational programme that coordinates the training needs of talented young footballers with their academic requirements. This ensures that promising footballers get the opportunities and support that they need to fulfil their sporting potential, whilst enabling them to maintain excellent academic standards.
The school’s location in the heart of the Pyrenees means that we can offer a truly unique opportunity for children to acquire and develop their skiing and snowboarding skills. During the winter season, pupils from Early Years to Post 16 who wish to participate in our ski school programme, spend one day a week on the slopes of the Valnord ski station. Children are divided into small groups based on their level of skill and are taught by highly-qualified, English-speaking instructors.Find out more
In addition to the importance of learning to swim from a safety point of view, swimming also provides an excellent means of maintaining overall fitness, promoting strength, endurance and flexibility. Swimming can also offer significant emotional and cognitive benefits, improving mood, memory and the motivation to learn. Our indoor swimming pool allows us to include swimming as part of the curriculum throughout Early Years and Primary, and extracurricular sessions are available for those who want to develop their skills further or improve their competitive performance.
