At Key Stage 3

PE is delivered in a ‘mixed’ gender setting for most activities. Pupils are taught all aspects of the PE National Curriculum including team activities, swimming, dance, athletics, gymnastics and outdoor and adventurous activities. All year 7 pupils attend an overnight camp with associated outdoor pursuits.

At Key Stage 4

Pupils will follow one of the following pathways for Key Stage 4: Sport Science (As an option), and then either OCR Sports studies or “Passport to Fitness” for core PE. The school has a tradition of developing the pupils’ skills and channeling them into their ideal activity by links with local sports clubs.

We believe in ‘sport for all’ and offer a wide range of activities. As well as inter-house competitions, the pupils have the opportunity to represent the school in most team games. Sportsday is also an annual event for all pupils in year 7, 8 and 9. Pupils involved in dance are given the opportunity to represent the school in local competitions as well as in our own talent and musical shows.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is offered to Key Stage 4 pupils at Bronze & Silver Level.
