Key Stage 3

2 hours of Core Physical Education is taught to all students in Years 7, 8 and 9 as it is very important to continue to participate in PE lessons in order to develop a healthy lifestyle and to remain active. Some of the sports we teach in Key Stage 3 are:

  • Swimming at New Parks Leisure Centre (Year 7 only)
  • Football
  • Trampolining
  • Hockey
  • Rounders
  • Badminton
  • Table Tennis
  • Netball
  • Gymnastics
  • Rugby
  • Handball
  • Athletics
  • Softball
  • Tennis

Students also take part in 1 hour of theory per week where students learn about topics such as the structure of the body, fitness methods and training and how to be a good leader. This is to help prepare students when given the opportunity to take PE in Key Stage 4 as an examination subject.
