Physical Education

Our aim of Physical Education is to enable each student to find a love of sport or physical activity and develop knowledge of how to stay fit and healthy throughout life. To do this, we offer a very broad curriculum where students take part in lessons such as; Gymnastics, Trampolining, Badminton, Dance alongside team games like Football, Hockey, Netball and Rugby.

We also have a vibrant extra-curricular timetable offering different activities such as Football, Dance, Netball and Trampolining on a weekly basis to students. This compliments the competitions we enter through the Barnsley Schools programme of events.

All these opportunities lead towards our option choices at key stage 4 where students can choose to study GCSE Sport. This is an excellent course that is assessed partly through students’ ability in 3 sports, a coursework section on a Personal Exercise Programme and a final exam.

Students who have studied GCSE PE have gone on to study both A levels and BTEC courses at college or 6th form, helping students towards careers like Coaches, PE teachers or Sport Scientists.
