Enrichment School Activities

At Horizon English School, we encourage learning to go beyond the classroom.

At Horizon, we believe in providing a well-rounded education that extends beyond the traditional classroom setting. That's why we offer a diverse range of before and after-school activities and enrichment options to cater to the interests and talents of every student.

For those inclined towards sports, we have football, basketball, netball, rugby, swimming clubs and more, where children can develop their physical skills and teamwork abilities. For the creatively inclined, there are art and music classes where students can explore their artistic expression through various mediums. Additionally, we offer STEM clubs where young minds can delve into the exciting worlds of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. With such a wide array of options, every child at our primary school has the chance to discover and nurture their passions beyond the regular school day.

Different options exist depending on the child’s year group.

Examples of free, staff-led Enrichment School Activities (ESAs) include:

School trips and residentials

At Horizon English School, we encourage learning to go beyond the classroom.

We enrich our classroom curriculum with relevant school trips and excursions, which enhance students' experiences outside of the classroom. Trips are often linked to curriculum topics and promote skills such as team building, self confidence and independence. Many of our school trips instill a sense of adventure in our young students.

We run an appropriate school trip for every year group once or twice a term. Excursions include The Green Planet, Dubai Aquarium, Al Ain Zoo, Oli Oli and Children’s City.

In addition, our Key Stage Two pupils (Years 3-6) go on an outdoor adventure once a year. Designed to promote skills of leadership and independence, Year 3 visits a wilderness site, usually in RAK or Sharjah for a day trip, whilst Years 4, 5 & 6 stay overnight. This direct experience of nature is the highlight of the school calendar and often sees life-long friendships being formed.

Horizon English School also offers an annual international ski trip every January. Students from Years 4-6 are eligible to join the popular trip to France, where they enjoy student friendly accomodation located close to the slopes.
