The PE program aims to develop students’ competence and confidence to take part in a range of physical activities that become a central part of their lives, both in and out of school.

The high quality PE course on offer enables all students to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity. Students are taught to develop a wide range of skills and the ability to use tactics, strategies and compositional ideas to perform successfully. When they are performing, they are encouraged to think about what they are doing, analyse the situation and make decisions. They also reflect on their own and others’ performances and find ways to improve them. As a result, students develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles. Discovering what they like to do, what their aptitudes are at school, and how and where to get involved in physical activity helps them make informed choices about lifelong physical activity.

PE also helps the students to develop personally and socially. They work as individuals, in groups and in teams, developing concepts of fairness and of personal and social responsibility. They take on different roles and responsibilities, experiences that PE offers, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations.

In Key Stage 3 all students receive one double lesson per week where they will cover a range of activities  including – Football, Netball, Gymnastics, Dance, Health & Fitness, Badminton, Basketball, Table Tennis, Athletics, Rounders, Cricket, Handball, OAA and Trampolining.

In Key Stage 4 all students also receive one double lesson per week but can opt for the GCSE course with an extra 3 lessons per week, two theory and one extra practical lesson.

Throughout the school students are encouraged to select activities they are most interested in and in which they wish to gain further expertise in. They are given the opportunity to practise activities at lunchtime and after school, and can represent their House in intra-school competitions. School teams are entered in all the Preston Schools’ tournaments and competitions
