Introduction

The Physical Education faculty is an enthusiastic, highly motivated and fast moving department, offering a personalised, inclusive learning experience, for all pupils of all abilities and interests. Our extensive curriculum and extra-curricular provision, offer outstanding opportunities for young people, allowing the equation of new skills as well as the self-development of social, moral and cultural values.

An important aspect of the PE department is team sports, offering opportunities to boys and girls in a variety of sports. We have successful teams in Rounders, Netball, Hockey, Badminton, Cross Country and Football, with many of our pupils representing the school at a County and National level.

The Performing Arts faculty, which encompasses PE, Art, Drama and Music strongly, believe in the student voice. The Performing Arts council is an effective tool in driving the future success of the faculty. This has been evident by achieving the accolade of Arts Mark Gold Award for the third consecutive occasion. Their teamwork and talents are portrayed in the success of whole-school productions, Sporting events, charities and Sports Days encompassing PE, Art, Drama and Music.
