Key Stage 3

On arrival in Year 7, each pupil is expected to undertake a specific baseline test. The test gives us a basic indication of a pupil’s strengths and weaknesses in Physical Education and allows us throughout the duration of Key Stage 3 to support development of progress and skills.

In the Physical Education lessons pupils take part in a broad and balanced curriculum designed to build upon existing skills and then lay the foundations for introducing new challenging skills and experiences.

Pupils are given the opportunity to enjoy and embrace new skills whilst developing the ability to analyse and evaluate their own performances and the performances of others.

Health and fitness is an on-going theme throughout and pupils are given the opportunity to understand the importance of fitness and the significant role that it plays in later life to maintain a healthy body and lifestyle.

Key Stage 4

GCSE

Pupils can opt to study P.E. at GCSE level. The AQA P.E. GCSE is a very popular option with the pupils. It gives them an insight into the working of the human body and its response to exercise and training. The courses enables those who are interested in playing sport to have two extra sessions of P.E. per week balanced with theory based lessons. It also gives them an opportunity to learn more about sport and the provision of sport. Pupils are assessed on the knowledge that they have learnt through an end of course exam which is worth 60% of the overall grade, the remainder of the mark is made up from a 40% practical grade based on the levels of ability shown in three particular sports in which the pupil excels.
