The gymnasium is a large school space, duly equipped with the necessary materials to carry out school activities.
The gymnasium, together with the playground or the sports centre, are educational spaces used in the teaching of physical education, depending on the educational practices programmed.
It is a space with sufficient capacity for the number of pupils who use it in each session, and with the specific materials normally used: balls, ropes, mats, wall bars, benches, etc. It will also have other areas for storage and for the students’ toilets.
Spanish legislation states that schools must have “a playground, partially covered, which can be used as a multi-sports court, with a surface area appropriate to the number of school places. In no case shall it be smaller than 900 square metres. Many schools find it difficult to meet this requirement and occasionally some move their pupils to a municipal sports centre to hold some of the scheduled sessions.
