For more information speak to

Ms C. Davies


For students who follow core PE you will have the opportunity to develop the skills that you would have achieved in Key Stage 3.  You will still do two hours of PE within your timetable.

Students will follow a wide variety of sporting activities and disciplines.  They will be able to enhance their skills building upon the skills and knowledge that they will have gained in Key Stage 3.

You will get the opportunity to develop your skills on coaching and leadership courses.

You will be able to learn and develop skills such as leadership skills, coaching skills and many more within this course.


You will not have to hand in an exam or course work.  You will, however, be assessed on your practical performance and your ability to perform as a coach or official.

Each topic that you do will go towards your final end of year grade in PE.

If you’re on a coaching course you will be required to log a specified amount of hours in order to gain the award that you are studying.

Assessment evidence for assignments may be generated via a range of activities such as role-plays, video diaries, experiments, practical assessments and presentations.


Completing coaching or leadership courses will allow students to pursue further coaching courses or apprenticeships.

Strong performance in core PE will give you the practical, officiating and coaching skills for Level 3 courses such as A Level and BTEC Level 3.
