Why Study Physical Education?

Physical Education enables pupils to learn through movement so they can develop, extend and refine their skills in a range of movement contexts.   The Physical Education Department aims to promote healthy lifestyles in pupils.  Active, enjoyable and challenging Physical Education learning experiences encourage pupils to develop:

  • positive attitudes to and enjoyment of physical activity;

  • an awareness of the positive impact of physical activity on health and well-being; and

  • positive sporting behaviour and a sense of fair play.
