PE

KEY STAGE 3


Pupils have three lessons over two weeks of PE and Key Stage 4 have one core hour per week (if not taken as a GCSE option). During this time a mix of activities from the above sports is followed. GCSE PE is offered at Key Stage 4 as an examination option. The GCSE syllabus follows OCR PE syllabus and the option consists of practical and theory sessions, with 40%/60% split of marks respectively.


The School’s sports facilities include sports hall, changing rooms and showers, a brand new multipurpose all-weather pitch, extensive playing fields marked out for hockey, rugby and football (winter games), rounders, athletics, softball and cricket (summer games); fully equipped gym and a fitness centre for stamina and endurance training.


We have strong links within the community, particularly with Sharlston Cricket Club. The PE staff enjoy profitable and harmonious working relationships with parents and external coaches.
