The Physical Education Department consists of three full-time teachers and two part-time teachers.
Year’s 7 to 9 students follow the National Curriculum at Key Stage 3, allowing them to experience a range of activities and to develop their knowledge of rules and tactics. During Key Stage 3 students also have the opportunity to receive the accolade of Student of the Term in each activity covered.
All Year 10 and 11 students follow the National Curriculum at Key Stage 4, where the focus is to develop previous areas of activity while also introducing new activities which may prove to be lifelong sports. The department also offers the GCSE AQA Physical Activity specification; currently 42 students are studying this course.
At Key Stage 5, Year 12 and 13 students are given the chance to participate in a range of sports as well as compete in fixtures with other schools as well as undertake the Level 3 Sports Leaders Award. The department follows the AQA specification for Physical Education at AS and A2. At present we have 10 students studying at A level.
