Sports & PE

A Celebration of Victory And Achievements On The Sporting Field

Our students enjoy an extensive timetabled programme for PE including Health-related fitness, Swimming, Badminton, Table Tennis, Trampolining, Cricket, Rounders and Athletics.

This offer is further enhanced by our Games Programme which gives students exposure to competitive team sports such as Football, Touch Rugby, Basketball, Netball, Volleyball, and Handball alongside further opportunities for developing health and fitness.

Representing the school at any of these sports is a sought-after honour. We often have returning students coming back to school and speaking with pride about times they played in sports fixtures at Sunmarke.

Specialist Team

In addition to our committed PE staff, we enlist specialist coaching to strengthen the Games Programme and motivate students to engage in competitions at the local, regional, and national levels. Our teams, known as the Spartans, compete in events organized by DASSA and DAPSA, which are Dubai sports organizations, as well as the British Schools in the Middle East (BSME).

World-class Facilities

On-site, we have a full-sized and a 5-a-side Astroturf pitch, along with MUGA courts outdoors for multi-sport use. Indoors, we have two Multi-Purpose Sports halls, a dance studio, a gymnasium, a 25m swimming pool, and a learner swimming pool.

Sunmarke's House System

All students at Sunmarke school are members of one of our houses: Lions, Tigers, Leopards & Panthers. These houses continue to promote team spirit within our community.

Throughout the school, students regularly participate in house competitions where they can earn flourish points, leading to both personal and group recognition.

In secondary school, students are acknowledged for their contributions to their houses by taking part in house competitions, being an engaged learner, contributing to the community, and showing care and respect for others. Every week, a student of the week is chosen in each year group and celebrated for their efforts.

Students are encouraged to stay updated about upcoming house competitions through internal advertising and on our dedicated Instagram page @sunmarkehousessecondary.

Our current house captains are:

Leopards: Matteo, Leen

Tigers: Bobbie, Jana

Lions: Adham, Hasan

Panthers: Fairouz, Virginia
