Core P.E.

Course Outline ‐ What will I learn?

In Y9 and 10 the pupils are able to choose a pathway which involves them choosing mixed or single sex groups. This allows the pupil to choose the right group to be able to feel comfortable and confident to perform. The curriculum is balanced and the programmes of study are longer and tailored to the needs of each group. 

In Y11 options are given allowing pupils to choose their favourite activities. An emphasis is put on enjoyment and stress relief from exam pressure. 

In 9, 10 and 11 where possible offsite activities are booked to show the pupils the opportunities for participation within the community.

Each pathway in Y9 and Y10 cover: 

  • Invasion activities 
  • Net and Racket
