Physical Education provides students with high expectations to extend all students’ previous knowledge, skills and understanding through a range of lessons and activities.

Students will be taken on a journey of personal development as they learn about the importance of leading an active lifestyle and how this can develop their social, cognitive and physical skills.

In addition, topical links to the KS4 curriculum are embedded to establish the foundational knowledge that will be required by students who go on to pursue Physical Education or BTEC Sport in Key Stage 4 and 5.

Our students will learn to become independent learners and effective leaders by being encouraged to ‘think for themselves’. Enjoyment is focused on heavily to ensure students’ are enthusiased by PE, physical activity and school sport regardless on their primary school experience.
