GCSE Physical Education (Grades A* – G) and BTEC level 2 is also offered at Key Stage 4. Level 3 is also offered at Post 16.

Lessons are adapted to suit the needs of the less able pupil and individual assistance is given when required.

Group and team activities are geared to take into account the individual needs of each pupil. Quite often children with Special Needs are very talented in Practical Activities.

All pupils have equal opportunity to participate in extra-curricular activities.

Education plans are drawn up for those children who require them and their progress is monitored.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Extra – curricular activities play a vital role within the school and are seen as a means of improving the social, moral and physical development of the child as a person.  Bearing this in mind, the school policy is to offer a range of activities which covers a broad spectrum catering for all tastes, sexes and ages. (see Extra-Curricular page)

Socially, extra-curricular activities provide pupils with the opportunity to mix with and meet people with whom they would not normally do so, both in school and outside the school environment.  It is felt that this interaction is of great benefit to pupils when they leave school and have to mix with people from all walks of life.

Pupils who participate in extra-curricular activities should develop into more mature adults who will more readily respect the individual needs, wants and opinions of others and recognise the right of each person to express the same.

Though some activities are purely recreational, many provide pupils with the opportunity to represent the school in competitions.  School Football, Hockey, Netball and Rugby teams are entered each year in League and Cup competitions while in many other activities, pupils are entered in Local or National competitions.  A sense of pride, in themselves and for the school, should come with the honour of representing the school.

Members of the P.E. Department are closely associated with extra-curricular activities. Their talents and expertise are invaluable in this area.
