Welcome to the PE Department


Physical education is strong department with a well rounded team of staff. PE is a core subject throughout key stage 3 and 4 and also is offered out as examination PE in KS4 for those students wishing to expand upon their knowledge of sport and related topics. Core PE encompasses a wide variety of sports including but not limited to, football, basketball, netball, rugby, hockey, badminton, trampoline, swimming, OAA, athletics, tennis, rounders and golf to name a few. We also offer leadership and lifesaving courses throughout core PE. Examination PE currently consists of Edexcel GCSE PE from year 9 and then students are selected to continue with GCSE or move to a more vocational PE course to maximise their opportunity for a high grade. Both pathways include knowledge on body systems, methods of training, nutrition, components of fitness, health and wellbeing, performance enhancing drugs and lifestyles. Each pathway currently has an exam, with the GCSE having 2 papers, as well as a practical assessment. Students have the opportunity to expand upon their sports by taking part in residential trips involving climbing and skiing over the 5 years of study.

Curriculum Content


Below you will be able to read what your child is studying during each half term.  ‘Key Stage Three’ will give an overview of study for Years 7 and 8.  ‘Key Stage Four’ will outline teaching content for Years 9, 10 and 11.

The ‘Curriculum Rationale’ will give you the reasoning behind why we teach your child what we do and why we have chosen to order the topics in the way we have.

We hope that you will find this information useful, but if you require anything further about your child’s education in this subject please do not hesitate to contact the Head of Department.
