Welcome to the PE Department

Introduction

The PE department at St. Peter's provides a high-quality P.E curriculum which enables all pupils to enjoy and succeed in many kinds of physical activity.
We are currently ranked in the top 2% of PE departments in the country.
Pupils learn to reflect on their own and others performances and find ways to improve them. They develop the confidence to take part in different physical activities and learn about the value of healthy, active lifestyles. PE helps pupils develop personally and socially as they work in groups and teams, Pupils have the opportunity to take on different roles and responsibilities, including leadership, coaching and officiating. Through the range of experiences that PE offers, they learn how to be effective in competitive, creative and challenging situations.

PE is also offered as an option subject. Pupils can opt to follow PE at GCSE Level. Year 10 and 11 pupils are following the new OCR 2016 syllabus (www.ocr.org.uk/physicaleducation) P.E. results are consistently excellent and well above the National Average.


Where does it lead?

GCSE PE allows pupils to continue to study the subject at A-level or BTEC. It could lead to careers in personal training, apprenticeships in sport and medical disciplines such as physiotherapy.
