Physical Education plays an integral role in developing students physically, socially and morally. It develops students’ physical competence and confidence and their ability to perform in a range of activities. It promotes the development of physical skills, whilst developing knowledge about the body in action.
Physical Education provides opportunities for students to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges, both as individuals and in groups and teams. It promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles. Physical Education aims to develop students’ interests and abilities in a range of different activities and helps to identify and support sporting stars of the future.
BTEC Sport courses in Physical Education are available as options from Year 9 to 13 for those students who are particularly talented on the practical side, want to consider a future employment in the fast world of sport and enjoy extending their knowledge about the development of skill and how the body works.
Physical Education offers an in-depth and diverse programme of study in a variety of different activities, encouraging students to develop their existing skills whilst experimenting with new sporting experiences. Students are given the opportunity to become involved as a performer, a coach and an officiator.
The wide range of activities available to Year 8 students will allow them to develop greater physical competence, confidence and self-esteem. Collaboration will be promoted through teamwork in sporting activities and Leadership opportunities, as well as personal attribute development.
Year 9, 10 & 11
Our aim is to encourage continued enjoyment and participation in physical activity, resulting in lifelong participation once the students leave the College. Therefore, opportunities are provided enabling students to develop their understanding of sport and their physical wellbeing based on their personal experiences from Years 7 and 8. Students experience a wide variety of activities from across all areas of sport and physical fitness that will hopefully inspire them to continue participation for the rest of their lives. Students can also opt to enrol on the BTEC Sport course. This will enable them to study the subject in more detail and develop their knowledge in a field they particularly enjoy.
