Aims and Philosophy
As a department we are very inclusive and try to offer activities that will appeal to all our students, be it the traditional team games or more modern sports. Our standards and expectations are very high and students are encouraged to take part in an excitingly wide range of activities that are delivered in curriculum time and in our extensive Extra- Curricular schedule. As a department I would like to see us really take off with competitive sports for both girls and boys and really make are presence known within the school.
- Jordan Cook (Yr10)- 7th in the world in the Electric Boogaloo and 18th in Europe for Break Dancing competition in Amsterdam.
- Billy Cable (Yr10)- Up and coming boxer from Heart of Portsmouth Boxing.
- Liam King(yr11)- London Irish Youth development squad. Also “Head Prefect for PE”.
All students follow a course including Invasion games, striking and fielding games, net/wall games, athletic and aesthetic activities. Our intention is to develop physical skills, mental agility and problem solving, leadership and group cooperation and an understanding of the body and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. In addition to completing the assessment areas students also start to work on aspects of Sport Education such as organising, coaching, reporting, officiating and collecting data. This takes place across both KS3 and KS4. Pupils are assessed to National Curriculum levels in a variety of sports in our PE program.
