PE helps students develop personally and socially: by working as individuals, in groups or in teams, they learn the principles of fairness and social responsibility toward others. The range of opportunities in PE allows them also to take on different roles and responsibilities, such as leading, officiating or coaching. Through this range of challenging activities they understand how to become effective participants and how to get involved and remain involved in sport.
The Key Stage 3 curriculum
Through Years 7, 8 and 9 students experience a range of activities covering all aspects of the National Curriculum, developing the key concepts of Competence, Performance, Creativity and leading a Healthy Active Lifestyle. This includes a number of team and individual games, as well as swimming, gymnastics, athletics and health and fitness.
PE at Key Stage 4
