Sports in the Primary School

Sports in the Primary School at UTS begins in the PE curriculum. All students attend weekly PE lessons that enrich and extend the unit of inquiry study in their classroom. Swim is usually one of the weekly lessons with the other lesson on our multi-purpose sports field or in the PYP dedicated gymnasium. The sports programme is extended through the extensive free extra-curricular activities (ECAs) offered after school on various days during the week. In addition, UTS PYP competitive sports teams are U11, U12 boys and girls football teams, swim squad for students in Grades 2-5, U12 girls netball and U12 boys and girls basketball teams.

Sports in the Secondary School

At UTS, we firmly believe in ‘a healthy mind in a healthy body’ and hence Physical Education (PE) plays a major role in our curriculum. To keep everyone informed of all things sporty at UTS, we are a member of the Dubai Affiliated School Sports Association (DASSA) (the organisation responsible for competitive school sport in Dubai). UTS students are competing in a variety of competitive leagues and we are proud to showcase not just results on our very own fully integrated sports website: Here, you will be able follow specific school teams, view fixtures and results, including location maps and kick off times, download your students fixtures to the calendar on your PC or mobile device and even have a look at upcoming opponents past results.
