Physical Education

Our Physical Education curriculum utilises different physical activities as a media to educate our students. Through different kinds of sport, exercise and physical activity, we aim to create a motivational learning environment for our students to learn both physical and generic skills which support their independence and confidence in all areas of life.

Our curriculum encourages a healthy, active, and balanced lifestyle, with the ultimate goal of enhancing the holistic health, fitness, well-being and holistic development of each of our young people.

In order to motivate our learners we use lots of different games and activities which can be modified in order to cater for our young people’s wonderfully individual differences. A wide range of sports and activities are provided such as archery, football, rounders, trampolining, swimming, walking, cycling, tennis etc.

We provide general Physical Education lessons for all students from KS2 to KS4 as part of our outdoor learning curriculum. In KS4, students have an option to choose BTEC Sports or Junior Sports Leader qualifications.
