Key Stage 3

What you will study:

All Key Stage 3 students participate in 2 hours per week of curricular PE. They participate in a broad and balanced curriculum, with 28 different sports being taught last year. Different sets and year groups follow bespoke curriculum pathways that suit their needs. Excellent facilities allow us to offer Orienteering, Trampolining, Parkour, Table Tennis, Dance, Boxercise, Body Pump, Cycling, Handball, and Health Related Fitness as well as the more traditional sports. Dodgeball, Parkour, Inclusion in Sport, Handball, Hockey, Cycling, Volleyball, Boxercise and Yoga have been added to the Curriculum as a result of student voice. A Sports Leadership Programme has been embedded with students following Young Leaders in Year 8 and Your Leaders in Year 9, as well as the Youth Sport Award Bronze and Silver.

Students are assessed at the end of each half term in the sports they have participated in. They log their grade and what they need to do to improve in future in their PE Assessment Passport.

Key Stage 4

What you will study:

Most Key Stage 4 students participate in 2 hours a week PE, still following bespoke curriculum pathways. They are assessed as they were in Key Stage 3. Leadership is continued with students completing the Sports Leaders UK Level 1 Award. Some also opt into the Level 1 Award in Fitness And Physical Activity.

Additionally in Key Stage 4 we offer GCSE PE and BTEC Sport Level 2 as Option choices. In GCSE PE students undertake a wide range of sports and do activities off site such as Personal Survival, Rock Climbing and Canoeing in order to gain practical scores (60% of final grade). They sit an exam at the end of the course (40% of final grade). Last year we achieved a 74% pass rate which is significantly higher than the national average, with 40% of students gaining A and B grades. In BTEC Sport Level 2 students complete 4 Units; Fitness For Sport And Exercise, Practical Sports Performance, Training For Personal Fitness And Leading Sports Activities. Pleasingly, 66% of students gained either a Distinction or Merit grade.

Key Stage 5

What you will study:

In Key Stage 5 all students participate in 1 hour a week recreational sport and physical activity. They can also opt into the Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award. Sports Leadership continues with the option of doing a Community Sports Leaders Award, a Higher Sports Leaders Award or the Youth Sport Gold Award. We also offer other courses such as NGB Level 1 Awards and Refereeing Qualifications.

We also offer BTEC Sport Level 3 Diploma as an Option choice. We select Units that best suits our students' needs. They particularly enjoy the 4 day Outdoor and Adventurous Expedition, Sports Leadership, Work Experience and Practical Sport. 90% of students achieved Distinction** or Distinction* grades last year. Another option choice is Level 2 and Level 3 Coaching Awards and NVQs, delivered by Little League Soccer.
