Head of PE: Mrs E Ince

The key aims of the PE department are to maintain or stimulate student interest and enjoyment in physical education and to promote health and fitness for current and future lifestyles through engaging in purposeful physical activity. Students help develop their academic, physical and social capabilities through competition and co-operation.

The curriculum is broad, including a variety of games, gymnastics, athletics and dance. There are well established and successful GCSE and A level PE courses and the Community Sports Leaders Award course is offered in the Sixth Form.

There is an extensive extra-curricular provision and fixture list which gives opportunities for many students to participate and compete. These opportunities include clubs, coaching/practice sessions and fixtures ranging from friendly games, festivals, Borough Leagues, Cup and Championships through to County Cups, Championships and National competitions.

Healthy competition, citizenship, fair play and co-operation are encouraged and demonstrated by students.
