Physical Education

At The English College, sports play a crucial role in the holistic development of every student throughout their educational journey from ages 3 to 18. Our dedicated team of PE teachers, specialised in both Primary and Secondary education, incorporate values such as Respect, Teamwork, and Perseverance into our comprehensive curriculum.

Central to our mission is the promotion of opportunity and inclusivity, as we aim to introduce students at The English College to the numerous benefits of embracing sports and physical activity in their daily lives. In recent years, our presence in the DASSA leagues has grown, and we are now focusing on achieving success in top leagues and tournaments across Dubai.
