Subject Overview

The aim of the Physical Education department is to allow pupils the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of physical activities and promote lifelong participation in sport and physical activity. Pupils cover a broad curriculum in KS3, developing skills and confidence in a range of sports including invasion games, gym, dance, fitness and outdoor adventurous activities. We want the girls to get fit and enjoy their time being active.

In Key Stage 4 pupils can choose BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Sport, Activity and Fitness.  We are currently studying through te Edexcel exam board.

All KS4 pupils take part in 1 hour a week core PE time where they will be allowed an element of choice in the curriculum that they receive, rotating activities regularly.

There is a full extra-curricular programme in placeafter school. Pupils can take part for recreation or in competitive matches in summer and winter sports.
