Physical Education

Physical Education is an opportunity for students to develop their social, physical and mental well-being. We offer an extensive and varied curriculum that allows all learners an opportunity to succeed whether that would be through performing, leading or demonstrating a theoretical understanding of sport and physical education. Through high quality teaching and learning we provide engaging and challenging lessons with the aim of instilling a lifelong passion for sport and physical education. Throughout our curriculum we strive to build an ethos around teamwork where learners collaborate to overcome challenges giving them a sense of togetherness and pride.
