Physical Education at Key Stage 4

All students at Key Stage 4 continue to have two fifty minute core PE lessons per week. The activities designed to help students find appropriate exit routes into sport in the community that they can continue to participate in when the leave school.  These include the traditional games but also activities such as yoga, boxercise, uni hoc, trampolining and table tennis.

For those with a particular interest in Physical Education GCSE PE is offered, which is a further three fifty minute lessons per week.  Our exam board is GCE or OCR.  The qualification is broken down into 60% theory, for which there are two written exams, and 30% practical (students will be assessed in three activities as a performer).  The final 10% comes from a coursework piece which analyses a performance within a specific activity.  

We also offer the students the opportunity to study Sports Leadership at Level 2 within their core PE lessons.

Students with an interest in Dance may also take the opportunity to study BTEC Dance at Level 2.
