Physical education (PE)

ballPE is sometimes known as Games

BUT it's much more than that

It will include team and individual games and sports, for example, badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders, rugby, tennis, athletics and gymnastics. 

But PE is so much more. Lessons will develop your skills and improve your performance in other competitive situatuions. If you are not keen on sport you may get chance to do other active things, like keep fit or Tai Chi.

Taking part in outdoor and adventurous activities that challenge you intellectually and physically is very much part of PE lessons. You may also learn how being active can help to keep you happy as well as healthy. 

You'll be encouraged to take part in competitive sports and activities outside school through community links or sports clubs.

You'll learn:

  • how to use a range of tactics and strategies to help your chances of winning
  • different types of dance styles
  • team work, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, individually or as a group
  • how to analyse and question how you perform compared with the last time, showing how you've improved to achieve your personal best.
