At Elian’s British School, the leading international school in La Nucía, Alicante, they are proud of their extracurricular activities. They have always stood out for their diversity and quality, and to promote our students’ development, they also ensure these activities are integrated into the school’s overall educational program.
Extracurricular activities motivate students to improve their academic level by offering them enjoyable and inspiring pastimes, which also help to build their interpersonal skills and increase their drive.
Elian’s offers a range of extracurricular pursuits at the start of each school year as part of their belief that education should extend beyond the classroom. Overseen by a member of their staff, these activities are provided by a team of external experts, who understand the value of providing students with a well-rounded education.

Depending on the nature of the extracurricular activity (educational, recreational, artistic, or sporty), it provides a variety of mental and physical benefits. After-school exercise promotes both the child’s academic achievement and physical growth. If the activity is artistic or expressive in character, it will benefit their mental agility.
