PE: Physical Education

Compelling Learning in PE

Within the PE faculty we work hard to instil a learning environment where all pupils develop the skills to challenge themselves and others in a positive, practical way. Compelling learning is evident throughout all lessons as we establish clear goals through practical skills and enhance progression in many different and challenging formats.  Pupils will demonstrate the importance of working in a team, utilise their  leadership skills and enhance their own learning and the learning of others.

In Physical Education we follow six week schemes of learning. The activities we develop are seasonal, for example in the Autumn term we will follow:
KS3 – Netball, Football, Rugby, Basketball, Volleyball, Cross Country Running, Orienteering, Gymnastics and Trampolining, Fitness, Athletics, Rounders, Softball and Cricket
KS4 – Badminton, Football, Rugby, Netball, Trampolining, Hockey, Volleyball, Cross Country Running, Basketball, Rounders (including Flat Bat Rounders), Softball, Tennis, Athletics and Cricket.
Throughout the activities covered we will be looking at specific parts of pupil development, such as teamwork, umpiring and refereeing,
The faculty offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, such as Football, Netball, Rugby, Cricket, Rounders, Tennis, Cross Country, Badminton, Basketball, Boxing, Golf and Trampolining. We also offer enrichment in Health Related activities, such as our Fitness clubs and Pilates sessions.
