Physical Education (PE)

In PE, students experience a range of fantastic sports that develop a broad set of skills and a knowledge of healthy living, from cross-country and football to orienteering and gymnastics, with other sports including netball, basketball, rugby, trampolining, athletics, fitness, striking and fielding on the way.


How we deliver these subjects:

  • Year 7 and 8 have two lessons per week of PE
