Overview

All students follow the current National Curriculum for sport at Key Sage 3 and 4 with Key Stage 5 following an option timetable. Students are encouraged and supported to enhance their skills and experiences throughout.  Our aim is to create a passion for sport within a learning environment that promotes inquisitive minds, positive values, and strong physical skills that breeds a life-long enjoyment for sport.

KS3 

Overview

Students at Key Stage 3 have the opportunity to follow a diverse and well- structured curriculum that includes archery, rowing, boxercise and zumba as well as the main stream National Curriculum sports.  Students are assessed practically throughout the year and have written assessment stages at each half term.  These written tasks give the students the opportunity to self-reflect and develop their literacy skills in preparation for GCSE Physical Education and the wider school curriculum.

KS4  

Overview

Students who choose to study GCSE Physical Education have the opportunity to expand their knowledge in a wide variety of sports specific areas, including Fitness and the Body Systems, Health and Performance and Sports Psychology.  Students currently study 4 hours over the fortnight with 1 hour dedicated to developing their Personal Exercise Plan as part of their written coursework.  The new specification demands that students are practically assessed in 3 sports of which at least 1 sport must be a team game which contributes 40% of the final mark.  Students will then complete a final written exam that is worth 60% of the final mark.
