THE HOME OF CHAMPIONS
SPORTS ACADEMIES AT SOTOGRANDE
Sport plays an important role in our students’ lives, both as part of the school day and in their free time. Sport is rooted in the curriculum and linked to physical education, health and sports science and our privileged location and climate makes sports so much more appealing all year round.
No matter what level kids wish to engage with sports, whether it’s kicking a football in the playground or training to become a pro, we are there to support them and help them to find their passion. Even if it’s an unusual sport, we will work to give them access to it. To meet the needs of the highest achievers we are developing academies such as our highly successful golf academy SIGA, which is producing golfers who are winning titles on the national and international stage.
In 2013 we launched a football academy to turn the passion for soccer into professional training and development. To enrich the experience we are using smart solutions to get players the match experience they need, such as the agreement with Castellar Football Club for our top boys to train and play with the team. This is a great partnership in so many ways; developing the sport, Spanish language and intercultural understanding and we are working on further exciting partnerships such as this in the fields of polo, basketball and kite surfing.
We are focused on offering students the opportunity to excel at the sport they love whilst not detracting from their academic studies and believe that commitment to physical excellence promotes discipline and the will to succeed which favourably influences all areas of personal and academic development.

SIFA FOOTBALL ACADEMY
Football is arguably the world’s most popular sport and many children think they can ‘make it’ in the world of professional football. Some can, and will, but professional coaching is the essential ingredient. Our Football academy takes kids – boys and girls – who want to reach the best possible standard they can and reach elite levels in playing and understanding tactics and this is achieved with high standards, a rigorous training regime and opportunities for each layer to excel.
