Physical Education


Our PE department offers a wide range of sports and activities and encourages all pupils to try these, to improve their physical, social and mental wellbeing to inspire a lifelong learning in sport.
The sports of athletics, cross-country, football, hockey, roller hockey and rugby are the extra-curricular activities, where we participate in competitive matches against other schools. Have a look at the extra-curricular section of the website for more details of these clubs.
House matches are held at the end of every unit of work for the various activities, where you represent your House, either Bignian, Donard or Eagle. Points for their matches are added to the Standard Points accumulated throughout the year, climaxing on Sports’ Day, when the House Championship Cup and Attainments’ Shield are awarded.

Physical Education develops pupils as individuals by:

  • Helping pupils develop physical competence, confidence and self esteem through participation in a range of practical contexts.
  • Providing enjoyable and positive experiences with real opportunities to achieve success
  • Providing opportunities for pupils to learn to be creative, expressive and competitive and to develop positive relationships and respect for others
  • Learning how to take increasing responsibility for choices and actions in relation to their own learning, safety and involvement in physical activity
  • Learning how to practice, refine and develop specific skills and techniques and to analyse and improve their own and others’ work.
  • Providing the opportunity for pupils to achieve qualifications in GCSE PE and BTEC Sport, in order to pursue a career in the Sports’ industry.
