It is the aim of the Physical Education Department to deliver high quality Physical Education and School Sport. The sporting philosophy of the school is to provide opportunities for pupils of all abilities to enjoy sport and to develop their abilities to their full potential.
Through participation in high quality provision, our students will be able to demonstrate the following personal qualities:
- A strong desire to learn and make progress.
High levels of dedication, attendance and involvement in PE and school sport.
High levels of commitment to PE and school sport.
High levels of positive sporting behaviour such as fair play and helpfulness.
Within this we ensure all students develop their whole body skills and confidence to enable them to take part in a range of physical activities, develop a wide range of skills, begin to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully. They develop their ability to analyse situations and make decisions whilst reflecting on their own and others’ performances, finding ways to improve them and importantly gain knowledge of a healthy active lifestyle.
We aim to ensure student have high levels of enjoyment and enthusiasm and a strong desire to get involved, to do this we offer a wide range of activities within curriculum time (see below), extra-curricula activities (see below) and numerous trips to see elite sports performers throughout the year.
The school prides itself on our students’ commitment to their teams. This has resulted in recent District and County competition successes in football, netball, girls rugby, athletics and cross country.
