Physical Education

Why study Physical Education?

A level PE allows students to explore a number of completely different aspects of sports participation. It is this breadth, together with the nature of the syllabus that allows us to offer a range of teaching and learning styles; students will often find themselves engaged in practical activity in order to further their understanding of theory. They will combine their practical performances, in one chosen activity, with academic assessments in pursuit of a strong overall grade. Our large indoor sports hall, two designated classrooms and an Astroturf pitch provide for a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience. A level physical education is recognised by all Universities as a scientific-academic qualification and is particularly useful in the pursuit of places on sports science, physiotherapy and sports related teaching courses.

More information about Physical Education can be found in the subject film below or in our Sixth Form Prospectus (on our website).
