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.
