In KS4 we offer GCSE PE as an option. At present the course is 60% practical and 40% theory assessed. During practical lessons students study a range of sports in depth, looking specifically at rules, regulations, tactics and analysis of performance. During theory lessons students study the effects of exercise on the body both short term and long term. They also study why people take part in sport and what influences them to choose the sports that they do.
Each term there are PE trips to watch professional sport including;
MK Dons F.C. Games
Northants T25 Cricket and Hertfordshire Mavericks Netball.
This year our year 7 have also visited the Sky Sports studios to take part in the TV show GAME CHANGERS!
