Curriculum Aims

The PE Curriculum Area is extremely committed to providing a safe, relevant and inclusive curriculum. Every student will take part in at least two hours of PE a week and the extra-curricular opportunities are vast. PE is an imperative part of the school week as it is the only subject that enables students to focus on their physical development and movement.

The PE Curriculum Area looks to deliver the curriculum with energy, vigour and flair. It will provide a wide variety of sports, ensuring that students can pursue their sporting interest both inside and outside of school. A strong emphasis is also placed on educating students about the importance of Health and Fitness, and encouraging the pupils to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

We seek to promote a culture of achievement, leadership, teamwork, participation and sportsmanship to ensure every student in PE is successful. 

The PE Curriculum Area is well established and very successful, with last year's GCSE cohort achieving a progress 8 score of 0.79 (students achieving 3/4 of a grade more than expected) and with 33% achieving an A* or A grade - both of which significantly exceed the national averages for girls.

Year 9

We aim to provide the following outcomes for students:

  • To create learners who have high aspirations and go onto success in to Years 10 and 11
  • To provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all students where they learn, enjoy and participate in PE outside of lessons and school
  • To create tangible success criteria to inspire and motivate students to want to achieve to the next level and have clear steps of exactly how to get there
  • To provide evidence that students have made progress in knowledge, skills and character.
