KCD Sports

 

Welcome to Sports at Kent College Dubai

We are one of the best British Schools in Dubai, and we’re mad about sports!

At Kent College Dubai, we believe all children are entitled to a high quality, positive experience of Physical Education (PE).  We use sport as a tool to develop ambitious young leaders who fulfill their potential both on the pitch and in the classroom, proud of their uniform, moral fortitude and personal bearing. Our mission is to develop the full potential of each individual in an engaging and empowering environment.

Our young athletes have core values, rooted in tradition:

  • respectful of the laws, officials and opposition; 
  • tolerant of our own and other’s mistakes;
  • and at all times, ambassadors for the school, demonstrating the utmost integrity in endeavor.  

These sports values are in line with Kent College Dubai’s Core Values of Integrity, Tolerance and Respect. We routinely instill these virtues in our students, because we believe that character, effort and resilience are more valuable than talent alone.
