It is proven that if a student is happy and fulfilled they will thrive. Encouraging, respecting and nurturing each student’s areas of interest outside of the curriculum plays an important role in their academic development.
At English International School Moscow, your child will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of co-curricular activities in and outside the classroom, including sports, drama, music, art and more, both within the school day and after school.
I see how my child academically progressing, gaining self confidence and being very happy. Those are fundamental things for me as a parent.

Physical Education & Sports
Physical education is an essential part of our curriculum. A balanced programme throughout the year develops four key skill areas:
- Mobility, suppleness and body awareness;
- Sports technique and ball skills;
- Stamina training and fitness;
- Team games and sportsmanship.
Sports include gymnastics and dance, athletics, swimming, cross country skiing, football, basketball, volleyball, touch-rugby, field hockey, cricket and tennis. These sports are not only part of the curriculum, but can be taken up as an extracurricular activity too.
Physical fitness is essential for a healthy life and a lively intellect. Teamwork and competition, trying one’s best and learning from victory and defeat are essential training for life.
