Welcome to Physical Education

Welcome to the physical education department. We pride ourselves on an ethos of participation and opportunities. This is reflected in our, inclusive, Key Stage 3 and 4 core programme and our GCSE PE and Level 2 BTEC courses. Not only do we have an inclusive curriculum structure but we also offer a wide range of extra- curricular opportunities ranging from football to rock climbing.

Our highly committed and motivated department members also aim to offer a range of trips that enhance the learning process and offer opportunities for students to achieve pledges.

Key Stage 3

The Physical Education course at Key Stage 3 provides students with the necessary skills and knowledge to access the GCSE PE or BTEC Sport course in Key Stage 4. Core techniques are built upon through enabling students to improve their ability to select and apply skills before transferring them into situations which allow them to outwit an opponent.
