Key Stage 3 & 4 Core Physical Education
Students from 7 to 11 will participate in 2 hours of Physical Education a week, the curriculum aims for these lessons are:
- To instil a lifelong love of sport;
- Students to acquire and develop skills in a wide range of sports and apply these in a competitive environment;
- Improve physical and mental health.
The department aim to achieve this by giving the students experience in a wide range of sports both in lessons and after school and to make these as active and as enjoyable as we can. In KS3 students are assessed in two sports every half term, this is to help inform them of ways to improve and track progress. Students are not assessed in core PE in KS4.
GCSE Physical Education
Years 10 and 11 students are given the option of choosing to study a GCSE in Physical Education in addition to their core practical lessons.

PE is important, because it helps your fitness, mental health and makes you a much healthier person. It is also important to get fresh air and learn new skills. You could discover a sport you really enjoy or you are very good at and it could be your new favourite pastime
