Physical Education

The Physical Education Department offers access to excellent School and local professional facilities, dynamic and experienced teaching staff, a multi-dimensional and diversified syllabus, a substantial co-curricular programme and varied and stimulating material involving applied sports theory and practical sessions.

The study of Physical Education as an academic subject is open to GCSE students using the Edexcel syllabus. This course aims to:

  • Develop knowledge and understanding through practical application: A large section of the course is taught in a practical way thus allowing theory to be understood through practice.
  • Encourage a holistic understanding of PE: Students will receive a well-rounded introduction to the world of PE, sport and sport science through the combination of physical performance and academic challenges.
  • Nurture skills and knowledge for progression to further study.
