Physical Education

 

Lessons change on half termly basis, allowing students to take part in different areas of the curriculum.  These include gymnastics, swimming, games, leisure activities and outdoor adventure pursuits.  Students also have the opportunity to take part in extra curricular activities to further develop their skills.

Throughout these activities the PE Department aims to:

  • Develop the students' interest and enjoyment in physical activities
  • Raise student self esteem levels through their achievement in physical activities
  • Develop students' understanding of sportsmanship and fair play
  • Develop physical competence and artistic and aesthetic understanding

Students are assessed using National Governing Body Award schemes.  These include BAGA (Gymnastics), ASA (Swimming), BTF (Trampolining), AAA (Athletics), BCU (Canoeing), AKW (Karate).

 

 

As well as taking part in practical activities all students in Key Stage 4 are entered for the BTEC First Certificate in Sport, a course that they follow throughout Years 10 and 11, which combines theory elements from PE with the practical side.  Students in Year 11 also have the opportunity to opt for the Sports Leaders Award Level 1, which involves developing leadership skills whilst working with younger students.
