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.

Remote Learning

When the school has to close during term time or when we have students who have ‘enforced absences’ (for example who are shielding or self-isolating during the COVID-19 pandemic), we provide work to ensure that learning continues. 

While at home you will be set work in line with your normal timetable in school.

Please check the Google Classroom for your class and access learning materials and complete any work that has been posted there. If there is no specific work for you there, then you should access the work linked below during your lessons, while at home.
