At Cranleigh, we make PE and sport fun for our students and encourage their active and enthusiastic participation, at the same time producing motivated sportsmen and women who are good role models. As a consequence, we have a growing reputation within the Abu Dhabi International Schools Sports Association (ADISSA) and the British Schools Middle East (BSME) from Y3 – Y13. 

We have an extensive after school CCA program, with a choice of many different sports, and regular inter-school matches for Y3-Y6, students are kept healthy and active. Many students play several sports, and we encourage this: our belief is breadth of experience is preferable to specialisation at school level. 

We are very lucky to have our own first-class facilities onsite to match a wide range of interests and abilities. A team of well qualified and motivated PE staff deliver our broad and diverse PE programme. Our major sports are football, netball, swimming and rugby, but we are also competitive at athletics, cricket, touch rugby, volleyball and basketball.
