The  “Sagrado Corazón” Teacher Training School is located near excellent sports facilities which are used by the Physical Education Department for giving practical classes. The facilities regularly used by our teachers to provide instruction are listed below.

  • “Las Margaritas” Municipal Sports Centre: Located at Calle Poeta Emilio Prados, S/N, this sports centre is just a 10 minute walk from the  “Sagrado Corazón “Teacher Training School. Several of our practical physical education courses are given here. The sports facility has a multi-sports court, tennis court, turf soccer field, changing rooms, and spacious rooms for giving large classes.

  • “Hermandad Sagrada Familia” Gym: Located next to the “Sagrado Corazón” Teacher Training School, the gym is equipped with three rooms, one of which is used to provide practical instruction (see picture). The practical classes given in the gym involve low-intensity activities that do not require a large amount of equipment, focusing on basic physical education, body language and psychomotricity.

  • Sports ground: Located adjacent to the car park, this sports ground can be used to practise a wide variety of team sports, including basketball, volleyball, outdoor futsal and handball. It is also used by the Physical Education Department for its practical classes.

  • Asomadilla Park: This 27-hectare park is the second largest urban park in Andalusia. Just a 10 minute walk from the “Sagrado Corazón” Teacher Training School, it is used for outdoor activities such as map and compass reading, adapted games, or relaxation exercises to learn about specific topics related to physical activity in the outdoors.

In addition to the above sports facilities, other more specific facilities may be used on occasion by the Physical Education Department for class activities when necessary.


Much more than just academic lectures, our school provides you the opportunity to go beyond the classroom and blaze a trail. To see for yourself, take a look at some pictures of the activities we organised during the 2007/2008 academic year.







The Physical Education Department is committed to building ties between our school and other schools and entities in the field of sports, with a view to providing our students the opportunity to do internships in clubs, federations, educational centres, as well as sharing experiences with professionals in the field, and creating links for future career opportunities.

To achieve this aim, we are currently in the process of establishing agreements and relations with other entities to permit students to participate in these initiatives in the present academic year; a goal that we will continue to work towards and improve in coming years.


To keep our students up-to-date on news related to physical education, we post information regularly on our digital notice board about sports events, courses and conferences, leagues and competitions, visits by prestigious speakers, trips, and lots more. 

The site allows students to find out hot news about sports and education related to their specialty, any time and anywhere.



At the  “Sagrado Corazón” Teacher Training School, we believe that physical education is a fundamental aspect in teaching and learning processes aimed at adolescents. The pedagogical value of this discipline has been recognised by society in the last decades, but there is still much work to be done. In today’s society, and especially in the academic and professional spheres, research has come to be viewed as an important tool for development and progress in all fields, while the adequate balance between research and teacher training leads to higher quality education.

Within the current process to adapt to the Bologna Plan, we believe that teacher training, and in particular physical education training, require a basic knowledge of research to enable us to search for, find, understand and apply new scientific findings in the field of physical education to the primary school setting. Moreover, this new approach in higher education aims to specialize students in specific fields through postgraduate programmes of study. For this reason, it is important that students receive basic training in research methods before deciding to continue their studies at the postgraduate level.

With a view to the advancement and development of the physical education field, this section provides information of interest on national and international research projects, relevant research articles published in international journals, as well as scientific events and meetings. Spain currently has several research groups which are pioneers in the assessment of physical activity, physical fitness, and its relation to children and teenagers’ health, whose results have a significant impact on teaching practice.

Additionally, in an effort to improve teaching practices, we are working to establish the basic principles of physical education research in the school setting. Our aim is to conduct physical education experiments and pilot studies within schools that involve future physical education teachers who are undergoing training.

Where there is a will there is a way. Turn your education into a source of personal and social enrichment. You can count on the staff and faculty at the “Sagrado Corazón” Teacher Training School to support you in achieving this aim and make you feel proud of being a part of our institution. Today, society and education are two inseparable realities that need committed students. The Physical Education Department will provide you with the necessary tools to launch your initiatives as a fundamental part of this great educational challenge.
