Physical Education

Subject Intent: Why Physical Education?

In this modern era it is important that students understand the importance of exercise and our Physical Education curriculum is designed to enable learners to become confident, resilient and healthy learners; both theoretically and applied practically and encourage a lasting interest in sport and physical recreation.  Applied general and A Level routes require students to be meta-cognitive and self-regulating in their grasp of exercise physiology and each route demands a confidence in applying this knowledge into different roles within challenging environments (for instance, community fitness centres or competitive sport).
