Physical Education plays a vital role in the development of young people. A healthy active lifestyle provides a wide range of benefits in all aspects of life.
As well as the obvious physical benefits the subject promotes a range of social skills and encourages students to work together and develop leadership qualities.
The Physical Education Subject Area is committed to teaching students why a healthy active lifestyle is important and offering them guidance and opportunities to follow such a lifestyle.
Students will be taught a wide range of physical skills and activities. They will be offered opportunities to develop these skills and apply them in a range of recreational and competitive situations.
Our aim is to give every student a positive experience of sport and allow them the opportunity to develop this into a lifelong association with physical activity.
