KS4

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.
