Sport, Health and Nutrition

PE and sport have a high profile around the school. We have six members of the PE department and both a sports hall and gym. We also have an astroturf with floodlights and the department have their own teaching space, equipped with PCs and an interactive whiteboard. The department cover not only PE but health and nutrition as well.

At KS4 all students study one of NCFE health and fitness or BTEC health within the core curriuclum. In the sixth form students can study A level PE.

Practical lessons will form part of each course, however for more information about the courses and assessment please follow the curriculum link.

We have both sports ambassadors and run the Duke of Edinburgh Award. This is open to all students from year 10 onwards.

We have an extensive programme of extra-curricular activities with teams and clubs covering all the main sports. We have very good links with the local gymnastics club and liaise closely with our primary feeders.

Students should make sure that all items of kit are named, so that in the event that it is lost it can be returned to them.

Students have the opportunity to shower at the end of every practical lesson.

If a student is unable to take part in the physical part of the lesson, then he or she will be expected to have kit and help with the coaching, officiating and in the organisation of the lesson.
