Physical Education / Sport


The Physical Education Department will develop self-esteem, confidence and respect in all students at the Academy. We believe Physical Education can be the foundation to student development; it can contribute to spiritual, moral, social and cultural experiences, and most importantly physical development.

Students will be given opportunities to participate in a wide range of sporting activities, but first and foremost they will learn to lead a healthy and active lifestyles that benefit young people through life; this will include guidance and support for pathways that are external to the Academy. Students will also develop the qualities of team work, problem solving, commitment, self-discipline and resilience.

The Physical Education curriculum has been developed to fulfil the whole school vision and to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum. It is of an educational, competitive nature, requiring individual effort and co-operation. This enables a diverse range of options, including student leadership and the values of the Academy.

Theoretical and practical knowledge at Key Stage 3 will support transitions, as students study accreditation or participate in core lessons. This not only educates students' understanding, but also prepares and inspires for the many career pathways that sport offers.
