Physical Education

Physical Education should inspire all students to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities.


In every one of our academies a vast number of after- academy enrichment activities take place each week. Students are provided with opportunities to add depth to their learning and develop personal skills through a rich and varied enrichment programme.

Students will have the chance to enjoy new experiences and consolidate their timetabled learning through this programme. Further detailed information on the opportunities available to students can be found in the academy’s Enrichment Brochure by clicking HERE

Expectations of a PE student

  • Unable to participate – you will still need to bring kit as you will be asked to be an official or coach. We will also need a note from your guardian to explain why you are not able to participate
  • Forgotten kit – you will be expected to borrow our freshly laundered kit and a detention will be given.
  • Health and safety – no jewellery or watches allowed, and hair must be tied back (girls and boys!).
  • Effort – We expect that you always try your best. While there may be future sports stars amongst you, we simply want all of you to be the best that you can and enjoy the opportunities provided.
