Physical Education Department
Physical Education (PE) has a unique contribution to make to the school’s curriculum and many students enjoy the challenge of the subject. The long-term aims of the PE Department are:
- That our students achieve their potential.
- That they understand the importance of PE and a healthy lifestyle.
- That they leave school with a committed interest in some physical activity, or at the very least an appreciation of what is involved in skilful performance so that they can become knowledgeable spectators.
To enable us to achieve these aims we try to cater for the needs of individuals by offering a variety of teaching styles. How successful we are depends on many factors including changing attitudes in society towards sport and PE, along with, and most importantly, the specific needs of our students.
