Sport is an integral part of school life
It is vital for our students physical and mental wellbeing, and also something that many are passionate about.
Students all do a minimum of two hours of sport each week as part of the curriculum and younger students aged between 5 & 7 / in Reception through to Year 2 have timetabled swimming lessons.
Our main team sport is basketball and in 2022/23 we have entered four teams in the Madrid leagues – students train after school and then play matches against club teams on Saturdays. In 2021-22 our “Infantiles” team even won their league! Very excitingly we have also entered our first Volleyball team this year.
We also have links with local clubs for football, rugby, swimming, volleyball, dance and martial arts. Further details of the sports programme and opportunities for students can be found below.
It is important for intellectually curious students to be able to explore their academic passions beyond the classroom, so we offer a huge range of clubs from science and maths to debating and Mandarin.

HJLA (Hastings Junior Leadership Award)
The Award provides opportunities for students to pursue their interests and challenge themselves in different areas. They can achieve Bronze, Silver or Gold awards and the modules are: My interest, Get active, My world and My adventure.
A variety of activities and clubs
Students can make movies, create graphic novels, play chess, enter stock market competitions and many more. We also encourage older students to set up and run their own clubs!
