The aim of Physical Education at Outwood Academy Shafton is to embed in each student a love of sport and physical activity and a knowledge of how to stay fit and healthy throughout life. To do this we offer a very broad curriculum where you will take part in lessons such as Team Building, Trampolining, Climbing, Dance and Leadership alongside the more traditional sports like Football, Netball and Rugby.
All these options lead towards our option choices at Year 9,10 and 11 where you can pick to study GCSE Sport. This is an excellent course that is assessed partly through your ability in 4 sports, a coursework section on a Personal Exercise Programme and a final exam.
Students who have studied GCSE PE have gone on to study both A levels and BTEC courses at college or 6th form. Helping students towards careers like Coaches, PE teachers or Sport Scientists.
We also have a vibrant extra-curricular timetable offering activities like Football, Dance, Netball, Fitness Suite and Trampolining on a weekly basis to students. This compliments our competitive sport where we have Football, Netball, Rugby, Table Tennis, Handball, Athletics, Cross Country and Rounders teams.
