Sport forms an integral part of a pupil’s life at Brighton College. All of our pupils experience a wide variety of different sporting activities through PE lessons, as well as the diverse after-school activities programme that the College has to offer. Our pupils are taught in state-of-the-art facilities and also benefit from the partnership Brighton College has with Zayed Sports City and the outstanding array of top-class sports facilities it has to offer.
The ethos of the Sports Department is sport for all, with a focus on progression and enjoyment. Our main team sports are football, cricket, athletics, netball, swimming, touch rugby, volleyball, basketball, cricket and badminton. We believe that every child should be given the opportunity to develop their potential to the very best of their abilities. All pupils are encouraged to pursue sports in which they are talented or interested. In achieving this we hope that our pupils leave us with a love of sport and a desire to continue participating that will stay with them throughout their lives.
The Sports Department will aim to establish teams that are in line with the traditions of Brighton College UK whilst at the same time being mindful of the opportunities and competition that is available in Abu Dhabi and the UAE. All pupils will have the opportunity to participate in competitive matches, either through fixtures against other schools or inter-house competition.
