Why we study Physical Education
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all students to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for students to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Our PE department prides itself on providing an active, varied and challenging curriculum where all students experience opportunities to become physically confident and engaged in health and fitness. We have highly qualified PE teachers who deliver a PE programme that inspires all students to succeed and excel in sport, competition and physical activity as outlined by the PE National Curriculum.
