Physical Education

Our primary focus is to follow a philosophy of 'sport for all' where all students can gain a positive experience of sport that will help them to understand the importance of a physically active lifestyle.  Where possible we strive for the strong pursuit of excellence with competitive fixtures against other schools, which give our more able students the opportunity to test themselves against similar standard peers. Our curriculum is varied and stimulating to all students, whether you are interested in simply living a healthy lifestyle or want to go to university and make a career in the world of sport our curriculum.

To achieve our aims we provide opportunities in many areas to cater for your needs.  All students have one compulsory PE lesson per week (Year 7-12) with a range of opinions available. All students in Years 7-11 have Games lessons where we coach and play inter-house matches in the College's main sports (football, rugby, hockey and cricket).   Extra-curricular practices/matches run at lunchtimes, after school and on Saturday mornings in a range of activities.  These provide opportunities for pupils to represent the College or participate in a new sport at a recreational level.

GCSE PE is a popular option in Year 10 and Year 11 and A level PE involves a deeper look into the world of sport in Year 12 and Year 13 for those who have a passion for sport and the sports performer.
