KS4 Specification - OCR

In the Physical Education department there are four subject specialists who teach a wide variety of activities. Our aim is for the students to experience enjoyment whilst achieving the highest possible standards of which they are capable as well as developing their self-confidence and self-esteem.

During Key Stage 3, our students will develop their skills in various games activities, gymnastics, dance, orienteering, fitness and athletics. At Key Stage 4, all students follow the core Physical Education programme but are also offered the opportunity to study GCSE Physical Education. For those students who want to extend their interest and knowledge in the subject we also offer A-level Physical Education to our sixth form students.

Our facilities include a gymnasium, dance hall (with iTV technology), an astro-turf pitch, five netball/tennis courts and playing fields. We encourage all students to participate in our extensive extra-curricular programme. We have representative teams in a wide variety of sports and have achieved success at county, regional and national level. Throughout the year we also enhance the curriculum by offering trips to the theatre, international sports matches and gymnastic and dance performances.
