Sports and PE

At Dubai Heights Academy we truly believe in the motto ‘healthy bodies equals healthy minds.’ Physical activity and sports play a hugely important role in the holistic development of our students - providing them with the platform to flourish in life skills such as teamwork, leadership, communication, collaboration, and respect, among many others. Our varied PE and sports programme is tailored to help encourage and motivate participation at all levels and ages; allowing students to find the activity they are passionate about. We have created clear pathways which allow them to push themselves and always strive for improvement by competing in the DASSA inter-school leagues in sports such as athletics, aquathon, basketball, cross-country, football, and netball.

We boast a wide range of world-class facilities that allow our students to thrive and showcase their special talents. These include:

• Three age-specific, temperature-controlled swimming pools
• Two purpose-built sports halls
• A full-sized, FIFA-approved football pitch with 1,000 seats for spectators
• Rooftop courts that cater to netball, volleyball, and tennis
  • PE Programme
