School Life

Athletics at BFIS

Athletics, and sports in general, offer opportunities to cultivate communication and leadership skills, to work as part of a team, and to develop resilience by learning to meet success and failure head-on. Sports are a great lesson in time management and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Building relationships

Many research studies reveal that participation in Sports Programs improves students’ physical health, stress management, self-confidence and academic benchmarks. School athletes work together in practices preparing for competitions. They build relationship and learn to care for each other. At BFIS all students are encouraged to participate in and enjoy themselves across a wide range of sports and team sports. There are both, competitive inter-school sports leagues at a local level and also inter-schools sports competitions within international schools in and outside Spain.

New State-of-the-Art gymnasium

We are thrilled to announce a major addition to our school campus that will take our commitment to innovation and creativity to the next level. In Fall 2026, we will inaugurate the brand-new Center for Innovation and Creativity, a space dedicated to nurturing the imagination and talents of our students.


As part of this exciting development, we are also constructing a state-of-the-art gymnasium right beneath the Center for Innovation and Creativity.
