Physical Education

Physical education engages and energises students. It provides authentic contexts in which to learn and challenge yourselves to develop physical and interpersonal skills. You will experience movement and understand the role that it plays in sport and life.

You will improve your knowledge, performance and understanding in a variety of activities including:

  • Football
  • Rugby
  • Badminton
  • Basketball
  • Health related fitness
  • Swimming
  • Cricket
  • Gymnastics
  • Trampolining
  • Athletics
  • Wall Climbing

The skills taught in lessons will sharpen your knowledge of strategy and tactics, and help you to transfer knowledge from one context to another, including sport, recreational and outdoor activities. The concept of challenge by choice enables appropriate learning at your level that will build confidence.

We will study the importance of team work and the need to communicate with your team mates constructively and positively; support and encourage them so that everybody performs to their potential. 

Physical education provides a range of opportunities for students to challenge and extend themselves in an environment of managed risk. Students step outside their comfort zone to take on new social, physical, and emotional challenges. Taking on challenges and assessing risk requires the exploration and development of decision-making skills.

Skills for Life

One of our main aims as PE teachers is to prepare you for life after school and teach you how to train yourselves to keep or get fit and healthy. We hope to promote an interest in lifelong leisure and recreational pursuits to keep you participating in Physical activity. You will even learn how to be an analyst and acquire the ability to observe, assess and suggest how to improve weakness while praising strengths of each individual performer. 

Physical Education is a very enjoyable, challenging and important subject that develops physical fitness, psychological wellbeing and develops leadership qualities. There aren’t many subjects in school that give you the knowledge to live longer, happier and healthier lives.
