The PE Department aims to provide a broad, well-balanced curriculum which enables pupils to experience and enjoy a wide range of activities. Within in this we try to develop a positive attitude towards physical activity and encourage pupils to participate in extra-curricular activities. All pupils are encouraged to reach his/her maximum potential, regardless of attainment level, whilst also improving their physical fitness levels.

As a department we aim to offer a wide variety of games and physical/recreational activities within the practical limitations imposed by facilities, timetable and teaching staff available. Within these activities we aim to help pupils develop relevant skills, knowledge and understanding for future participation and vocations in sport and recreation.

Finally as a department we aim to help pupils to learn to cope with success and failure, to understand and appreciate the importance and the value of contributions of others, whatever their level of ability, and to encourage the appreciation of fair play and of abiding by the rules and codes of conduct in all activities.
