Welcome to Physical Education

Within Physical Education we combine a range of different courses including GCSE PE, Btec Sport at level 2 and 3, Sports Science and Alevel PE. Further to this all students take part in CORE PE which consists of two hours at key stage 3 and one hour at key stage 4. We run a full extra curricular programme throughout the year offering opportunities for students to participate for fun and for performance. This has resulted in a range of teams and individuals having a wide variety of successes at a district, county, national and international level.
