In Physical Education we want to inspire young people to participate in and enjoy physical activity, and to recognise the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle which continues into adulthood. We demand high standards from all our students and expect excellent levels of organisation, effort and behaviour. We are proud of the teams we produce in rugby, netball, hockey, football, rounders and cricket. We also believe and understand the importance of offering activities of a less competitive nature.
At Key Stage 3 we believe it is far too early to pigeon hole students into sporting activities. Instead we offer them a wide range of activities and experiences whatever their ability level. During this stage they are taught knowledge, skills and understanding through four main areas of activity, these include games, gymnastics, athletics and swimming.
At Key Stage 4 we now believe that students can make informed choices and, whilst still offering traditional activities, we allow students to opt into a range of activity blocks. For example, students are given the opportunity to complete the Junior Sports Leaders Course which develops sports leadership skills within their core PE lessons.
In addition to this students also have the opportunity to study Edexcel GCSE PE (See Mr Daly for more details) and BTec Level 2 Sport (See Mrs Green for more details) through the option system.
At Key Stage 5 we offer AS and A2 Physical Education and BTec Level 3 Sport (See Mrs Green for more details).
Sport continues to play an influential part in students school lives in that many students help coach younger students and lead inter-house activites. In addition to this regular fixtures are organised throughout the year.
