Our indoor facilities include a sports hall which has markings for four badminton courts, a full-sized basketball, netball and volleyball court and also an indoor hockey pitch with wheel-out goals.  Staff also have the use of a portable TV screen in order to enhance learning and four tablets that students and staff use to support assessments and feedback.  The sports hall also has three smaller sized basketball courts across the sports hall.  The sports hall can also be divided in to two teaching spaces when required.  The PE department also has a gymnasium which is used for dance and fitness.  


Our outdoor facilities include the field which in the winter has: two full sized football pitches, a 9 a’side football pitch and two mini hockey pitches going across, two sets of grids for teaching and a full size rugby pitch and posts. In the summer this changes to a 200m athletics running track, three rounders pitches, two softball pitches, throwing areas for javelin, discus and shot putt and a cricket wicket with boundary markings.  Our outdoor facilities also include the MUGA which consists of 3 netball courts, and markings for 2 handball.  Adjacent to the Sports hall we have an additional hard surface area marked for Netball.  Other facilities include 2 long jump and triple jump pitches, 4 netball courts and 2 handball areas.


Within the PE area we are also fortunate to have a designated PE classroom for the teaching of the GCSE, BTEC and A-Level courses.         


Our Curriculum

Key Stage 3
All students have two hours of PE each week. The lessons are taught in both mixed and single sex groups depending on the year group and the activities.

The students access the following areas: 
Netball, Football, Hockey, Rugby, Basketball, Badminton, Handball, Rounders, Cricket, Softball, Dance, Athletics, Fitness and Orienteering.



Key Stage 4
In Years 9-11 students have one hour of core PE each week. Students continue to build on their skills and understanding from the activities studied in KS3 but are also introduced to new activities such as volleyball and table-tennis.  In Year 11 there is more of a focus on ‘choice of activity’ by the students with the aim to encourage students to adopt more of a healthy active lifestyle and promote lifelong participation.

Examination Subjects
Key Stage 4

GCSE PE (OCR) and the BTEC First Award in Sport (Edexcel)are both offered within the options programme and are very popular choices with the students. Both courses have practical and theoretical elements and enable students to choose a route that suits them.

Sixth Form

Many students progress in to the sixth form with an interest in PE so two routes are offered:  the A Level PE (OCR) and the BTEC Nationals in Sport (Edexcel).  


As well as the examination subjects on offer there are still opportunities for all students in the sixth form to take part in sport. This can include helping out at inter house competitions, intra school competitions, managing football teams and also representing the sixth form in one of its many teams.  At present we have football, netball and mixed hockey teams.


Extra Curricular Activities

Extra-curricular activities include:
Lunchtime / after school practices; 
Inter house competitions;
Friendly/match fixtures; 
Interschool competitions; 


The extra-curricular programme aims to:

  • Raise the standards      of Physical Education and sport for all our students;
  • Develop the enjoyment      of sport and physical activity at our academy;
  • Promote lifelong      physical activity;
  • Establish contacts      and shared interests with other schools and clubs within the local community;
  • To extend the      curriculum beyond that offered in timetabled lessons;
  • To reinforce the work      encountered within the timetabled lessons;
  • To allow students of      different ages and ability to interact.

We also offer reward trips to students who give up their time for the PE department and also for students who have excellent participation and engagement in lesson.  This also includes giving students the opportunity to work with specialist coaches after school.
