Physical Education (PE) is a compulsory subject from Year 2 to Year 11. Lessons develop teamwork, cooperation, resilience, determination, loyalty and creativity.
Opportunities for physical challenge, analysis and evaluation of performance and the development of personal fitness levels feature strongly within lessons. These activities provide pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead healthy, active lifestyles.
Sport is an important part of the curriculum and a broad range of topic areas are covered, including: Football, Netball, Rugby, Cricket, Athletics, Swimming and Dance. There are numerous opportunities for extra-curricular activities, both during and after school. Fixtures against other schools, of all abilities, are held throughout the school year, in a range of sports.
During PE and games lessons, children may be supported by an occupational therapist to develop general body coordination, hand-eye coordination and gross motor skills.
Within Years 10 and 11, our aim is to keep the students active and continuing to participate in sports. To do this, we offer a different and more specialised range of sports such as Bouldering, Boxing, Team-building games, Kayaking, Powerboating and Sailing.
