The aim of the PE Department is to provide a balanced curriculum of team and individual activities which allows you to:

  • Gain understanding of your own physical ability and to provide experiences which help to promote your character

  • Develop a love of sport and a healthy, active lifestyle

  • Develop leadership skills in lessons

  • Learn from each other in small group contexts

  • Try a variety of activities

  • Be challenged at all levels of ability and develop physical skills as a result

  • Define clear progressions for those wanting to study PE at KS4 and 5 and guidance for those who may seek a career in sport

Group Settings

You are placed in ability bands at the beginning of each year. We believe that this leads to pupils who are more motivated and challenged at the correct level. You can be moved throughout the year if you score highly in assessments. You may be placed in different groups for different activities if you show promise in that area.
