Pupils can choose an extracurricular activity at our Language or Music Academies, participate in sporting, recreational or cultural activities or choose from a range of trips and excursions. Extracurricular activities take place after school hours and help to enhance physical, intellectual and social development, in addition to offering other benefits such as better time management and organisational skills, improvements in cognitive and motor function and increased self-confidence and motivation.
Our onsite Language Academy offers classes in English, German, Chinese and Spanish, delivered via a practical and efficient methodology by highly-qualified, native teachers. The teaching groups are small and are organised according to the needs and abilities of each student to ensure maximum progress from each child. Classes are offered at all levels, from beginner to advanced, and students are able to sit official language examinations, including the Confucius Institute’s Youth Chinese Test, or Spanish Language Certificates from the Instituto Cervantes.
The Active English programme at Agora Portals is the perfect way to ensure that your children have fun whilst they learn, improving and perfecting their confidence, understanding and fluency in English whilst participating in activities such as music, crafts and games. Active English classes are open to Agora Portals International School students and to children who are not enroled at the school, and are available every Saturday morning from October to June from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. A great way to spend Saturday mornings!
