We give our students a choice in Sports and PE, there’s an activity, exercise, team, spot, squad and place for all. Learn more about our PE programme and inclusive sports model and how this develops the love for physical activity and sport on all levels.
Our PE Curriculum
The curriculum is delivered in six different blocks, so that every student from Year 3 to 11 participates in at least eight different sports. In addition to this, students studying the GCSE Physical Education course have the opportunity to take part in a wider variety of sports. Our students also compete in a Fun Run and an Aquathon for which they train during PE lessons.
The sports and activities we offer are:
- Football (Soccer)
- Touch Rugby
- Water safety, Waterpolo and Swimming
- Inclusive physical activities
- Striking Games (Teeball, Softball, etc.)
Our PE curriculum at St Andrews helps build a love for sports and physical exercise. This appreciation for PE can be taken further through our inclusive Sports programme and as an IB subject; Sports, Excercise and Health Science.
