Physical Education is a vital part of every pupil’s development and by creating a programme that is both broad and balanced, the PE Department teaches a wide range of key skills.

As a Department, we provide pupils with valuable and hopefully enjoyable experiences in a range of activities. We aim to:

  • Offer learning experiences designed to give each pupil the opportunity to develop a positive awareness of their body, and be better informed of its function, ability and potential in Physical Education and everyday life.
  • Encourage pupils to foster a positive attitude to physical fitness and health that will continue post 16 years of age.
  • Provide challenging situations and environments that improve specifically identified skills and techniques.
  • Contribute to a pupil’s social development through cooperation, teamwork, leadership and competition.
  • Enable pupils to work independently and as part of a team, so as to contribute to the development of core skills such as communication and teamwork.
  • Encourage each pupil to achieve success, have enjoyment and reach their full potential.

In addition to timetabled sport within class time, a wide range of activities take place after school and at weekends, including regular scheduled matches in a variety of sports.  All pupils are encouraged to participate in these activities.
