HDN ACADEMY’S FITNESS FACILITIES
Physical preparation: a pillar of the HDN Academy
Our pupils must be athletes first and foremost. The physical side of things is decisive if they are to achieve this, both inside and outside the gym.
LOWER & UPPER SECONDARY SCHOOL CLASSROOMS
Our classrooms at the heart of our campus
We have 7 classrooms in total which accommodate small working groups of 3 to 10 pupils per class.
BOARDERS’ BEDROOMS AT THE ACADEMY
Residential schooling: a family atmosphere that our pupils appreciate
Our residential facilities are comprised of bedrooms with 2 to 3 beds but we also have individual rooms and box studios.
Girls and boys bedrooms are separated and boarders are allocated to rooms according to age. These accommodation facilities are monitored by video surveillance.
To promote harmonious relations among boarders in our “community”, each pupil must sign a life contract in which tolerance and respect are emphasised.
CATERING ON CAMPUS
Catering tailored to the needs of our athletes
Full board is available through a self-service cafeteria from Monday to Friday and optionally on week-ends and school holidays (subject to booking).
HEALTH AND FITNESS MONITORING
Physio and fitness...
Health and fitness monitoring is extremely important for prevention as much as for cure. This is provided in collaboration with a sports physician and a physiotherapist who visits the site several times a week.
THE HDN ACADEMY’S INTERNAL SHUTTLES

HDN PADEL CLUB
The Hauts de Nîmes Padel Club:
8 courts adjoining the HDN Academy campus
Padel is a racquet sport which is exclusively played in doubles. It therefore helps develop team spirit and a sense of conviviality.
It also helps players develop senses such as touch and vision while also helping to rapidly improve dexterity.
