At KS4, students have up to 2 hours of core PE a week, where they will be focussing on:
- Developing their health and fitness and applying tactics and strategies to games
In Year 10 students take part in a wide range of activities such as Badminton, Basketball, Aerobics, Boxercise, Softball as well as the more traditional games activities such as Rugby, Football, Cricket, Netball, Hockey and Rounders.
In Year 11, students opt into activities to take part in for a halfterm. Options could be Dance Mats, Football, Country Walking, Fitness Suite, Zumba, Danish Longball or many more.
At this stage the focus is on participation for enjoyment and health and fitness benefits in order to increase the likelihood of lifelong participation in sport.
