Sport at DBS EH is exciting, fun and engaging, to be felt throughout the school, bringing both physical and mental wellbeing to our students and staff.  There is always happy competition and inclusion throughout the year groups to provide something for everyone. Being part of a team holds important values of respect, motivating and compassion, that transpire beyond the playing fields. 

The Facilities include an outdoor, fully shaded, temperature-controlled pool.  It is host to swimming lessons throughout the school and a number of exciting competitions. Primary and Secondary Swim squads train multiple times during the week, in the morning and afternoons. Try-outs are at the start of each term, organized by the PE Department.

Swimming Gala’s between the school Houses as well as inter-school Galas are all held here.  This is a fun, exciting and very noisy part of the school.

The DBS multi-purpose sports-hall is used by all students as part of their varied PE programme. Curriculum activities include gymnastics, ball games, volleyball, badminton and basketball. Our netball, volleyball and basketball teams and recreational squads also use the facility regularly for training and hosting inter-school sports fixtures.

Our sports field is one of the busiest facilities. Our students love the space that this provides for their lessons and after school activities. The fully enclosed astroturf hosts an array of  sports fixture and our teams enjoy the DBS home crowd support on these occasions. We follow the DASSA Sporting Calendar and try-outs for rounders, cricket, athletics, football and rugby teams will be held at the start of respective seasons.
