Extracurriculars & Enrichment
Students are inspired and challenged to experiment, take creative risks, innovate and find their own voice through participation in diverse enrichment activities from music to performance art to coding, all of which are aimed at enhancing their mental and social development, and interpersonal and social skills.
We try, we fail, we rise, we shine – we believe that our enrichment activities are integral to learning here.
Enjoying every moment of school
We have developed a curriculum of MultiSmart Learning tailored to stimulate and engage all minds. Our curriculum offers extension opportunities for big thinkers and dreamers who demonstrate an exceptional aptitude for learning.
Regent offers over 60 extracurricular activities besides sports (which also include the World Scholar’s Cup, Model UN, our Performing Arts Academy and more) to suit the interests of children and develop their personalities and strengths.
Additionally, we offer lunchtime Enrichment Clubs, as well as a wide range of extracurricular activities and competitive opportunities to challenge students to explore their creative instincts and perform at global levels.
Art & Design is an integral part of our educational offering as it encourages student learning and development, fosters creative thinking, and nurtures a heightened sensitivity and appreciation of life. Regent’s Art curriculum helps students develop their artistic and creative skills and explore a range of media.
We provide a supportive and structured environment so students are able to interpret and articulate the subtle nuances of the language of Art, understand and appreciate different contexts, cultures and traditions, and develop their own creative voice.
Dance and Movement is a key part of our curriculum and dovetails neatly with our Music and Drama programme. Regent has a large and impressive dance studio with teachers who nurture students who wish to develop their talent and skills in this area and sharpen their abilities as performing artists.
Music promotes creative expression, cognitive development and creativity. Teachers weave Music across the entire curriculum and all year groups. Students are encouraged to learn an instrument of their choice and gifted students who wish to consider Music as a choice of higher study and or profession, are encouraged.
Regent’s Academy for the Performing Arts (RISSPAA) provides varied opportunities to students interested in music. Our qualified and professional music teachers help students realise their goals, whether it is to prepare for the Trinity or ABRSM Music exams, learn an instrument or just have fun jamming in a band.
We take students to various festivals and events held in Dubai to enrich their learning and broaden their horizons. These include acclaimed and much-sought after events such as the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, Art Dubai, Dubai Design District, Dubai Museum, Dubai Fitness Fest, Dubai Opera and others.
All students are encouraged to participate in at least one sport of their choice. In addition, talented students are invited to apply to our sports squads in Football, Swimming, Netball and Basketball. Regent participates in a number of sports leagues and is a member of the Dubai Affiliated School Sports Association (“DASSA”), a body that organises leagues and tournaments for schools in Dubai.
In addition, we play friendly matches with other schools which have competitive squads. We typically schedule games after school hours during the week, and on weekends to make it easier for parents to come and watch. Our students often train before and after school hours on weekdays and weekends for competitions.
Visit our Sports Hub here to find information on all our squad match fixtures in the various leagues in Dubai. The Sports Hub is also available on our VLE Mobile App.
Theatre helps a child develop public speaking skills, making them more confident. Our theatrical productions encourage participation from children as performers or backstage crew. Regent’s productions consistently draw a full house and every year they get bigger in scale with a large part of the student body involved.
There are 60+ clubs serving the Regent community. From sports to special interests, and career to cultural clubs, we encourage students to participate in a range of activities to develop their interests, hobbies, and individual personalities. Club activities typically take place at lunch-time and after school.

- Martial Arts
