At KS4 students have the option of selecting PE as one of their GCSE's, following the Edexcel syllabus which accommodates students who are both practically and theoretically gifted.
The course involves a range of practical and theory lessons with a certain level of competence required as 60% of the examination is based on practical ability.
Students must take part in activities which include:
- Team Games
- Individual Sports (which includes compulsory swimming)
- Net Games
Each activity has a theoretical aspect to test the students’ knowledge of tactics and rules.
We also offer BTEC Sport in KS4 which can accredit the students with 2 A* to C GCSE grades. This involves a range of assignments which can be completed to a Pass, Merit or Distinction level and is an increasingly popular course with our students.
