Physical Education

Physical education is an important subject in the development of young people. It enables them to develop a wide range of skills including communication, team-work, leadership, analysis, understanding of tactics and strategies, personal endeavour, decision making and knowledge of a wide range of sports. In lessons students are given an understanding of how the body works and the importance of leading a healthy active lifestyle with the aim that they develop a habit of sport for life. We believe that sport is inclusive and there is a sport for everyone and we aim to encourage young people to find that interest and passion and continue this beyond school.
