Aims

The P.E. department give each pupil the opportunity to have a high quality sporting experience in lessons and the opportunity to represent the school in competition.

Key Stage 3:

Pupils in Years 7-9 receive a double lesson of core PE a week. The pupils travel offsite to Kings Oak Primary September until Christmas and from Easter until the end of term in July. From January until Easter lessons take place in the Bunyan Centre.

Core PE consists of a diverse range of sports to meet the demands of the national curriculum. Sports are delivered in line with the competition calendar allowing pupils a pathway through to representing the school in competition.

Key Stage 4:

We offer Edexcel GCSE P.E. at KS4. The course is mainly theory based with pupils requiring a good level of physical ability before undertaking the course. The course is examined through two written papers, a practical exam focusing on three sports and coursework with a weighting of 60% to 40% theory, practical.

Pupils in KS4 also receive core P.E. lessons with a double lesson a fortnight. Pupils can also supplement the PE offer through electives.

Advice for parents:

We would advise that pupils wishing to take part in GCSE PE should wherever possible play club sport outside of school
