Vision: 

As a department, we aim to provide a challenging, disciplined and safe environment for high quality learning and teaching in Physical Education. Pupils should experience a balance of activities which has the necessary breadth to inspire lifelong physical activity habits. Progression should be evident as the pupil passes through key stage 3 with a more personalised focused choice of activity in key stage 4. Pathways for accreditation suited to the pupil’s individual learning needs will also be offered through key stages four and five. The department is focused also on improving the leadership skills of our pupils to provide them with key employability skills, through their experiences in sport. Sports leaders qualifications will be offered to pupils from year 10 onwards. We will ensure each pupil is offered a stimulating and relevant choice of extracurricular provision in both a recreational and elite capacity. By the end of their physical education at the College, pupils should have developed a personal commitment to, and genuine passion for sport, maintaining their health and well-being into adult life.
