Our rigorous programme of extracurricular activities offers all our pupils the opportunity to develop different skills to complement their all-round education. We have various activities which seek to strengthen pupils’ skills in specific areas: our language school, our music school, sports, cultural activities and technology.
Pupils take part in extracurricular activities outside of class time, and the aim of these activities is to boost their physical, intellectual and social development. All of them offer great benefits for pupils’ development, such as learning to manage their time, organise themselves, improve their coordination, practise their oral expression, and gain self-confidence.
At Agora Lledó International School, the extracurricular activities we offer stimulate your children’s sense of team spirit and help them to burn up some energy while they have fun and relax.
A whole world of possibilities within reach!
