Physical Education

In the Physical Education Faculty we provide a range of opportunities for pupils to be active and enjoy physical activity.

We aim to make physical activity a central part of pupils lives and set them up for a healthy life in the future.

From studying a variety of sports to focusing on the body and lifestyles, students will discover there is more to sport than just the game.
