What will the students learn in PE?

Physical Education aims to provide an enjoyable and balanced programme enabling all students to develop physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively. The curriculum offers a comprehensive range of experiences to meet the needs of individuals. All students are encouraged to participate and develop positive attitudes towards active involvement as performers, observers and officials. All students are encouraged to develop confidence, tolerance and appreciation of their own strengths and weaknesses and those of others.

Students of all abilities are encouraged to take part in extra curricular activities and for the more talented participants there is the opportunity to represent the school at one of a variety of sports.
