Physical Education has never been more relevant in our ever evolving world of fitness, sporting business and sports science. Our talented staff and excellent facilities provide pupils with an energizing and stimulating environment in which to maximise their fitness and knowledge of the subject.
For pupils who aspire to careers in sports, leisure and fitness then GCSE and A Level Sports Science will give you an excellent insight and understanding into the wonderful opportunities that Sports Science can provide.
At both A-level (30%) and GCSE (40%) there is a practical element to the course where you are assessed in your ability to perform in your chosen sports. With the other proportion of the course dedicated to the theory base of the course.
We benefit from strong links with some of the top sports universities in the country and regularly prepare pupils to go on to study sports-related courses there.
