Horizon English School prides itself on its offering and commitment to sport and physical education (PE). Children will take PE lessons twice weekly and a number of extra-curricular activities are provided by the school for children in Years 3-6.
Sports include: Swimming; Football; Rugby; Netball; Rounders; Running Club and Athletics.
Children are encouraged to participate in competitive team fixtures in these sports with other British primary schools in Dubai, either playing Home games here at Horizon or travelling by bus to Away games at other schools. This enhances competitive spirit in sport and teaches children important lessons about both winning and losing. Our students take great pride in representing their school and being part of a sports team.
Cognita’s new Enrich ME sports programmes for Swimming and Football provide children with extra opportunity to develop their skills in these sports.
Several external providers also offer a range of paid-for sports such as: Tennis; Acro Dance; Ballet and Karate and can be booked directly with the provider.
