Core Physical Education

Course Content

Students will have the opportunity to follow an options programme within Physical Education, which offers a wide variety of activities. Students are able to participate in both in-depth and taster courses throughout Years 10 and 11. We encourage students to take responsibility for their learning and an options programme in Year 11 facilitates this process, providing students with some control and ownership of their learning. It enhances motivation levels and encourages inclusion and participation of students. This has a massive role to play in the fostering of healthy lifestyles and encouraging life long participation.
