Sport at The English School a tradition, a passion, a need

Throughout the 60 years of our school, many changes have taken place, including the transformation from a small bilingual school to an international school of great importance in our country. Likewise, sport at The English School has grown little by little with the help of UNCOLI (Unión de Colegios Internacionale), an association which, today, has 27 schools that each year schedule more than 100 events in seven sports (Chess, Athletics, Basketball, Football, Gymnastics, Table Tennis and Volleyball).


During the 50 years that we have participated in UNCOLI, we have played in many finals. In some we have won and in others we have lost, but our students have always kept the tradition of representing their school in the best possible way. A sign of how important it is for our students to participate in UNCOLI every year is the interest they show from the beginning of the school year, asking questions such as: When does UNCOLI begin? When do the training sessions start?


Once training begins and the regular season of each sport is underway, the interest in how each team is doing grows. 

If, fortunately, they make it to the semi-finals, the cheering teams are quickly organised to support The English School. It is no problem here to shout and cheer throughout the game even if it finishes at 7:00 p.m. and everyone arrives at home at 9:00 p.m. Supporting our teams is worth it, as we are a committed and united community.


Although this school year began in a very different way to the others, we invite all students to take up the tradition of representing our school colours, to rediscover the passion of accompanying our athletes which, although it stopped for a while, has not been lost. 

We are aware of the urgent need to start training, to engage in physical activity, to meet up with classmates in a context other than the academic one, to strengthen self-esteem, to embrace joy and to be optimistic about the future.

We welcome sports, The English Way!
