Physical Education


SUBJECT OVERVIEW

The aim of Physical Education is to develop students’ competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school and help them to develop a pattern of exercise which they continue to enjoy into their adult life.
 
Within PE we offer a high-quality curriculum which enables all students to enjoy and succeed in many different kinds of physical activity.
